We all know babies love soft, lush and plush. And, it’s fun sewing cute little projects and gifts for babies. So Sew4Home designed a delightful baby blanket with a pretty ruffle edge. It’s made with two different Cuddle® prints and soft Silky Satin. Sew4Home created a detailed sewing tutorial so you can make this blanket for your favorite baby.

Sew4Home created a step-by-step tutorial for this darling baby blanket. The tutorial details how to sew with Cuddle fabric, how to create a ruffle with Silky Satin, and how to create the layers- so the blanket is reversible and just as cute on the front as the back! Sew4Home also suggests some helpful tips, tools, and notions for the project, such as a using a pressing cloth with an Oliso iron  – on low – for the ruffle only, using a Janome with a special ruffler attachment, and how to hand stitch the opening closed so the blanket looks gorgeous on both sides.
