This blanket is very simple to make, use it as a guide to make one that suits you. I have added a boat and a truck. As alternatives, you could use a train, car, aeroplane, helicopter, or a range of animals, using vibrant colours. This one is approximately 1 metre square. It consists of 3 layers of material. I have used printed, cotton material for top layer, blue fleecy material for the underneath side and a thicker piece for the middle. Don’t make it too thick though, as it still needs to be washable.
Next I stitched through the 3 thicknesses, approx 10cm apart using a fairly large stitch, to give it a bit of a “puffy” look. I measured and ruled a faint line across, to make it easy to sew. This helps to hold it all together neatly.
For edging I bought some satin ribbon, ironed it in half, pinning it on to hold it in place, then did a zig zag stitch to hold it firmly in place.
It is an ideal blanket for putting on the floor for tummy time.
