Super Soft Baby Blanket with Cotton Print

I've added a new hand-made baby gift to my sewing repertoire. I found a wonderful tutorial here, with step by step instructions on how to make a soft cotton print blanket. I've always wanted to try a project that called for that super soft fluffy fabric you just want to wrap yourself up in and take a nap. 

All you need is 1 1/4 yard of minky or soft fabric of your choice, 1 1/4 yard of cotton print, thread and sewing supplies. 

My friend Stephanie is expecting her first baby girl any day now. The nursery is pink and leopard (so cute), so I ran with that theme, and made a bib and burp cloth to go with it.

I found a sweet pink storage basket to package it all together, along with an adorable pink leopard outfit and the cutest leopard high-top sneakers you ever saw! Little girl stuff is so hard to resist! And I love pink.

I wrapped it all up with clear cellophane and tied it with a ribbon. Such a cute gift! I can't wait to see baby girl snuggled up in this blanket and wearing her outfit. 

Here's a bib and burp cloth gift I made for baby boys


  1. Now I know why Aunt Weezy said at the shower to check out your blog and I would know all this talent you have! You amaze me. Noelle loves her blanket, burp cloth and bib! You did an awesome job. And of course I can't wait until she fits those shoes with the outfit!!! :) you're so talented.


Thank you!
