If you would like to make your own you will need:
2 yards of fabric #1 (lime deer)
1/2 yard of fabric #2 (lime hexagon)
1/2 yard of fabric #3 (lime ants on a log)
1 1/2 yards of pink Minky fabric
Wash to preshrink your fabrics.
Cut 3 - 4" strips of fabric #2
Cut 8 - 2" strips of fabric #3
Take your 8" strips of fabric #1 and sew a 2" strip of fabric #3 on both sides. Next you are going to sew in your 4" strips. If you are working with a directional fabric like I did this is a good time to lay out and pin your strips in the order you will be sewing. It should go something like this:
2", 8", 2", 4", 2", 8", 2", 4"....etc.
Round your corners, and trim.
Top stitch your seams down. You can use a zig-zag or decorative stitch if you would like. I used a straight stitch. Note: This is something that is going to be washed a lot, so this step is an important one.
Lay your blanket top on the Minky fabric, right sides together, and cut the Minky to fit. I like to pin it together before I cut so nothing shifts. Set aside.
Now it is time to make your ruffle. Cut 8 - 4" strips of fabric #1 (4" wide by 45" long). Sew ends right sides together to make one long strip. Press seams flat. Fold ruffle in half, wrong sides together, and machine baste raw edge.
Hand baste or pin ruffle in between blanket top and the Minky, right sides together, and adjust ruffle to fit. Then sew all around edge leaving enough opening in order to turn right side out.
Turn right side out and pin opening closed. Top stitch all around the outer edge in order to keep the ruffle in place.
Now your done! What do you think? Leave me a comment and let me know.
