How to Make a Double-Sided Receiving Blanket

Save

A receiving blanket is a small blanket typically used to wrap up a newborn at the hospital. You can make a receiving blanket as a gift for an expectant mother or to keep for yourself. A double-sided blanket uses two fabrics on one blanket so you can switch patterns by flipping over the blanket. The technique requires only a few materials and tools to complete, making it ideal for crafting novices.

Things You'll Need

  • Two fleece fabric panels
  • Straight pins
  • Scissors
  • Cut two pieces of fleece fabric, about 2 feet by 1 foot.

  • Lay the fabric pieces on top of one another, wrong sides together, lining up the edges. Secure together with two straight pins at the edge of each side.

  • Cut 2-inch slashes into the perimeter of the four sides, making the cuts about 1 inch apart. This creates a fringe border around the blanket.

  • Tie each top piece of fringe to the one directly under it, making a knot. Remove the straight pins.

Tips & Warnings

  • Children can help make this blanket for a new sibling because it requires no sewing.
