Minky Baby Blanket

My babysitter’s daughter is expecting a baby boy in a little less than 3 weeks, and I wanted to give the new bundle something special.  My youngest LOVES blankets, so I thought this would be a perfect (and simple!) gift to make him.

I chose two minky fabrics in bold colors.  I wanted something bright since newborns do not see pastels too well.  I used Minky Toy Chest in Azure for the main fabric and a bright yellow minky fabric for the reverse side.  I sewed the fabrics right side together, leaving a small opening for turning.  After turning the blanket right side out, I topstitched around the edge.  Very simple!  And the best part is that I had enough fabric to make two of these blankets, so my Jakey can keep one!  🙂
