When I was a young mother, I loved getting handmade gifts like receiving blankets, quilts, and afghans. They were always so sweet and personal, plus the store blankets never seemed large enough or warm enough.
Lately, there have been a lot of young mothers around me having babies and I decided to make the newest little girl on the way a receiving blanket and matching burp cloth. Those are two things you can never have enough of!
Let's start with the blanket. Click on the images for directions.
Wasn't that easy? Next we will make the burp cloth. Click the photos again.
Put the fabric right sides together and then stitich all around. Leave one end open. Trim the seam allowance to be about 1/4 inch all around. This picture shows it before trimming. Now flip the whole thing right side out through the open end. Iron in place. Fold in and iron the open end and stitch shut.
