Here is part two of Jamie's baby shower gift. The nursery will be ocean themed, so this blanket should fit right it! I chose a nice fleece (ocean print) for one side of the blanket and a soft flannel (solid blue) for the the other. The last baby blanket I made was with two layers of fleece, but I decided that might be too heavy, that's why I swapped it out for the flannel instead. To find my length I doubled the width of the printed fleece and had my flannel cut to match.
Then fold the tape at a 45* angle to the right.
At points the two strips of biased tape needed to be joined. This is easily done by folding over the edge of the first layer and then overlapping the second layer.
When you sew it down the edges will connect with only a small seam!
Then you fold your biased tape over and tuck under the last fold. This stitch will show, so try to sew as straight as possible. I aligned my presser-foot on the left with the edge of the biased tape.
Wen you flip the biased tape over your corners will create a beautiful mitered corner, sometimes they just need a little smoothing in the right direction and a pin to hold them in place, but trust me it works!
And here is the backside of the blanket. I'm not the most experienced seamstress, in fact I only learned about 3 years ago and am self-taught, so my stitching is not the straightest thing in the book as you can see.
Love how these corners look though!
And that's a wrap, such an easy blanket to make!
This blanket will be perfect for tummy playtime on the floor and for snuggling with on cold nights. And I hope as the baby turns into a little man maybe it will even be used as a superhero cape!
