Heated Wearable Blanket – Fleece baby blankets are easy to create with no sewing machine, or maybe a needle and thread. Adding a sewing machine to the combination makes for an unlimited range of choices. There are several fun colors and patterns and textures available. This guide will give some ideas that can get you on your way to making fleece blankets for everybody on your list.
Fleece is great to use specially since the cut edges are clean and do not require hemming. To create the blanket, pick a minimum of two colours or patterns of fleece which look nice together. Frequently I’ll get three pieces — two which I will use for the primary body of the blanket and a third which I use as an accent. Fleece comes in different patterns and textures so feel free to mix and match.
The dimensions of the blanket is dependent upon which it’ll be utilized for. Ensure it is a meter or so square if you would like to wear the floor to get a kid to play. There is no ‘right’ size to get a blanket, it all is dependent upon how you would like it to be utilized.
As soon as you have the pieces which you’re likely to use for the primary body of the blanket you’re prepared to cut. Here is where your creativity comes in. If you need two panels – an idea would be to cut one broader than the other. Another choice is to use three panels of one pattern and one of the other. Sew the pieces together with a straight stitch. Following the right stitch you’ll go back over the seam but now together with all the seam opened so that it sits flat. I use a scallop stitch for it.
When you have all of the pieces stitched together and also have flattened the seams together with the scallop stitch you’re all set to provide the blanket a nice edge. If you’re going to earn a lot of blankets, you will find rulers you are able to buy in the fabric notions area that guide you in cutting edge or bead borders. If you do not have a rolling cutter you’re really missing something. You’ll also require a cutting mat to use this. For a couple of blankets are fine, but if you believe that’ll be making more, I highly recommend the little investment.
If you have a ruler using the different borders, pick the edge that you would like to use and indicate the fabric and cut it with scissors or use the roller cutter and ruler together. It is also possible to produce a nice advantage having a regular ruler. Draw a straight line across the entire edge of the blanket. Using scissors, cut within the line in a scallop or ‘v’ pattern all the way around the blanket.
Now you’re all set to bring a few accents. There are many ideas for this and I invite you to explore anything that seems fun. You can cut out parts of the pattern of a single fabric and then scatter and sew them on the additional panels. You can cut strips of the accent pattern and sew them on in a diagonal. It is possible to make it easy and not add any accents. You can cut out hearts, butterflies, flowers, etc. and sew them on a panel. Use your creativity.
