DIY: Baby Rag Quilt9:30 PM
This is the softest little quilt made of flannel. The best part about it is how dang easy it is to make!
All you need:
7 different, yet coordinating flannel fabrics cut @ 1/2 a yard each
(so 7 half yards of fabric)
2 yards of solid flannel fabric for the batting (the middle of the quilt)
(white is usually the best)
about half a yard of matching fabric for the binding
sewing machine (we use this machine)
And here is how it is done:
* Cut 2 strips of each fabric @ 6 inches wide (one strip will be the front and one the back)
* Cut strips 2 of each fabric @ 3 inches wide (one strip will be the front and one the back)
* Cut 7 strips of solid flannel @ 6 inches wide (this will go in between the other fabric strips measuring 6 inches wide)
* Cut 7 strips of solid flannel @ 3 inches wide (this will go in between the other fabric strips measuring 3 inches wide)
Make a fabric sandwich like the picture above and below!
Now sew a seam down the middle of each fabric sandwich to hold all three pieces together.
Once you have sewn a seam down each fabric sandwich strip lay out your quilt.
Sew it together (Since both sides are "right sides" choose one of those sides to be the right side. ALWAYS SEW RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER so that there is a tiny bit of fabric that you can snip)
One side of the blanket is smooth while the other side is raggy.
Snip fabric with scissors along each sewn line.
(sorry for the lack of pictures to describe this... if you have any questions please email me or just ask with a comment!!)
Wash it... this will make it more raggy and get rid of all the little strings!!
