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
I'm on a mission to teach people to sew, quilt, and embroider. I design patterns especially for beginners and I never release a pattern until I have videos teaching you every skill you'll need to complete the project. Have fun!
