Baby Girl Receiving Blanket

Our kindergarten teacher at school is having a baby in March.
Wednesday is her baby shower and I was able to make this extra large, extra soft receiving blanket real quick this weekend:
(PS: Click HERE for my Grow Your Blog Give-Away.)


You just take two pieces of adorable flannel fabric (I buy a 1 1/4 yards of each fabric). Then, with right sides  together, stitch, leaving a 5 inch hole to reverse. Once reversed, add a decorative stitch around the perimeter and TaDa! you have a quick, cuddly baby gift. This one measures 36" x 38"...that's the size give or take an inch. My daughter loves hers, especially because they are larger than store bought and thicker too! (Plus grandma made them!)
