I have been very busy and have several projects that I’ve either just learned or that I have been working on and set aside as a temporary UFO. I had trouble deciding which one to post here this morning, but, I chose this simple fleece blanket because it really is so easy and can be made in any size.
First, I purchase 3/4 yard of fleece. Cut that in half and you can create 2 blankets out of it. You need to purchase enough flat lace (something that looks hand crocheted) to go around all four sides, it just depends on what size blanket you are making.
I used a serger to go all the way around the edge of the fleece before attaching the lace, but this could be done on a sewing machine as well. I then used an edge joining foot which allows me to lay the lace and fleece next to each other rather than laying the lace on top. Use an edge joining stitch to join the two together. The bunny is a small embroidery that I did on my machine using a 100×100 hoop.
I had so much fun making this, it can be completed in just a couple of hours, I purchased more fleece and lace to make several more. These make excellent baby gifts!
