I have realized that you can never have too many receiving blankets before. I did not really understand this concept, but I do now they are amazing. You can use them for swaddling your baby as a burp rag, as a changing spot on the go actually as a blanket and the uses go on and on and on and receiving blanket is like the little flannel blanket that you see baby's wrapped in at hospitals. They are really really basic.
They are literally just plain ole one piece: they're, not even like a front in the back, and so today I'm going to show you the easiest DIY ever for how to make your own receiving blankets start with some washed flannel and cut it to about 28 By 30 inches you can use the excess to make burp cloths bibs or whatever else you want, then grab a plate or Bowl and trace around the curve on the corners.
You then head to your serge and search around the entire outer edge. If you don't have a serge, you can use a regular sewing machine and over lock the edges with a zig-zag. There is a video linked below where I show how to do that, make sure to be careful at the curves rotating the fabric steadily. So the serge blade doesn't chew up your fabric. You tie the serge thread tails into knots to secure and you're done. These are so quick and easy. You can whip up several of these in one afternoon by the way, for finding this adorable fabric. For me, it is so cute.
