Cuddle-Blanket-Trudy's Faux Flange BLanket

Happy #TutorialTuesday! Today we’re sharing Trudy’s Faux Flange Cuddle Blanket.


Design inspiration credit for this lovely blanket goes to Fabric Depot company president, Trudy Parry Shurts, who made a similar blanket for one of her grandchildren. It was such a hit that she shared the technique with Sew4Home and they developed it into an easy, step-by-step tutorial you can size up or down.


The blanket border is created with an easy seamed faux flange, giving it a unique look.


A houndscheck Cuddle print is featured on the front and a Crushed Soft Cuddle is used on the back. The blanket is interlined with flannel for a soft and supple look.


This is the print on the front: Houndscheck Cuddle Coral/Navy, a Robert Kaufman Cuddle print
