Ruffle-Edge Baby Blanket Tutorial + Giveaway!

Hello, Craft Buds! Lindsay here, and I’m guest posting today on the Shannon Fabrics blog with a tutorial for this super-snuggly baby blanket!

Have you ever sewn with Cuddle Fabrics? Shannon’s Cuddle collection is the softest, silkiest fabric ever… similar to a minky fabric you’d find at many fabrics stores. I’ve really enjoyed sewing with them, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect. My husband and I are expecting our first baby this January!

We won’t know for a couple weeks if it’s a boy or a girl. But, I was dying to cut into this chevron print Cuddle fabric in baby pink. So, I just went for it, and opted for a neutral white on the other side! The ruffle binding is a navy blue jersey I had left over from a dress. So I went with a little blue and a little pink. I really love the color combo!

Want to make your own cute ruffle-edge baby blanket? You’ll need 3 yards of Cuddle fabric (1-1/2 yards each for the front and back), plus some jersey fabric for the ruffle. The finished blanket is 45″ x 45″, and I’m sharing the tutorial over on the Shannon Fabrics blog.
