Super Easy Flannel Receiving Blankets

Need a quick gift for a new baby? How about a cozy flannel receiving blanket made special for that new little bundle of joy? Here are some that I just made. Take a look, then I'll tell you how you can make them too!

Super Easy Flannel Receiving BlanketsThis shows four of the nine different blocks on the flannel fabric I purchased up at Keepsake Quilting a few weeks ago. All nine blocks are just darling!

Super Easy Flannel Receiving BlanketsHere you can see all nine of the blocks on this panel. Aren't they just so cute?


Super Easy Flannel Receiving BlanketsAnd here is the cozy flannel backing fabric I used for all four blankets.

These four flannel receiving blankets will be posted in my Etsy shop soon, but you can make your own with just some flannel and a few straight lines of sewing on your sewing machine! Here's how:

Take two pieces of flannel in whatever size you want your blanket to be and place them on your work surface with right sides together. Pin all the way around the edges. Stitch around all four edges, leaving a 4 inch opening in the middle of one edge for turning. Clip the corners and turn right side out, pushing corners and edges out. Press edges and stitch around all four edges to finish the blanket. If your sewing machine has any decorative stitches available, you could use one of them for stitching around the edge for a nice finish.

And there you have a quick and easy, but oh so sweet and cozy, little receiving blanket to use for your own little sweetie pie, or to give as a gift for someone else's bundle of joy!

Happy Stitching!

  • Love the flannel you used in these blankets. I was just looking at ICrochet and what did I spot but your projects! The pincushion first caught my eye as I have made several of these. Then I noticed all of your photos - a true credit to your talent.
