Receiving Blanket pattern

from Shiny Happy World
(9) Name: 'Sewing : Receiving Blanket pattern
Receiving Blanket pattern
Receiving Blanket pattern

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing straight lines

Pattern Description:

A receiving blanket is a baby staple - a lightweight blanket perfect for swaddling, for warmth or shade, for impromptu diaper changes, for a nursing cover-up - you can't have too many. Luckily, they're really easy to whip up.

On my sample I decided to add an appliqued bear. Recognize him? It's the Anywhere Bear applique pattern, enlarged just a bit.

In the pattern I give instructions for three finishing techniques - one quick and easy technique for making a stack of utilitarian blankets, one slightly fancier, and one heirloom-quality. You decide how much time you want to invest.

Expect to spend an hour or less at the fastest - more if you opt to add some embellishment or use a nicer finishing technique

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 36 inch square blanket


  • 1 yd. each of two fabrics
