Baby Blanket

Remember when Clara was a baby?

…and she and I loved to make the same facial expression?

Okay maybe you don’t remember that part.
We do love the same same go-to baby blanket!
It’s fast, easy, and only uses ONE layer of fabric…cause when you’re swaddling a baby, you want a receiving blanket that’s not too heavy and feels cozy on their skin.
Check. Check.

And….(yep) it also uses my favorite sewing item: Bias Tape

So come watch our new MADE Everyday episode and make your own!

  2. Too cute! I love how professional the look of bias tape is, too. I really need to get my craft room set up so I can leave my sewing machine out all the time…I’m sure I would use it more!

    Thanks Dana! Have just found out baby number 4 is on the way so this tutorial is perfect for me!

  5. A few years ago I taught my 8 year old how to sew a straight line. She’s 11 now and is SO much better than I am. She is my “go to gal” for whenever I need anything made.

    She watched your bias tape video a few months ago and made a ton of bias tape and puts it on everything now πŸ™‚ Thanks for the tutorials!

  6. Hey! I just pulled out fabric for a blanket for the birthday girl! I may do this one for the baby though since August is so hot! Thanks!!

  9. I just love that little bit of pizzazz the bias tape give a simple blanket! And this is a perfect new baby gift for an acquaintance that you don’t want to spend hours sewing something more complex for. Great video as always! πŸ™‚ Lisa

    I just had my 4th child and made him two of these blankets out of interlock knit. They are the best swaddle blankets. I also love the idea of using a fat quarter for bias tape. So many options and you don’t have to wait to get the fabric cut!!! Thanks for the awesome video!

      Hi Sasha,
      I used Knit fabric. You can find this in many fabric shops in the US, though I’m not sure what fabric shops are like in Malaysia. But I’m sure you can find it! It’s the same fabric that t-shirts are made of.
