Cuddle blankets are a great way to snuggle your baby and help them feel safe and secure. These particular cuddle blankets have been created with the softest cotton, so they’re super soft against their skin. They also have bright colors that make them appealing for even the youngest of infants as well as older children who like to play with dolls or stuffed animals.

Each blanket is designed to be durable, while still being lightweight enough for small hands to carry around easily. The vibrant patterns on these blankets will stand out in any nursery decor, whether you choose one with stripes, polka dots or flowers!

If I’m making a baby/crib blanket, I usually pick up a half yard extra of the cotton flannel. It gives me enough room to trim down to size.  Then I use any remaining for burp cloths or fabric baby blocks.

Square up your fabric to make sure that the corners are perfectly square – you will need to snip the fabric with your scissors and tear the fabric on each side.

Lay the minky or cuddle fabric on the floor (or your craft table), right side up.  Then place the cotton on top, right side down to line up the edges.  Trim the fabric as needed to make a perfect seam.

Pin pin pin! The key to sewing minky or cuddle fabric is pinning like crazy so it doesn’t move – so pin around the outside of the blanket, every 1 1/2 – 2 inches, leaving at least 1/2 inch on the edge for the seam. 

You may choose to sew a second time around the blanket as a reinforcement, making sure to skip the 6″ gap.  If you do a second reinforcement, sew right on top of the first stitch.

Pull your hand into the 6″ gap, and gently pull out the blanket, making sure to push out the corners with your finger.  Now, the blanket should be right side out, with a 6″ gap on one side.  Trim any little bits of string, and make sure all pins are removed. 

Sometimes those little buggers get stuck in there and once you sew that gap shut you won’t be able to get them out.

Finish by sewing the gap shut – using a 1/4 – 1/2″ seam allowance and a straight stitch. You may want to sew around the gap a second time as reinforcement, using the first straight stitch as a guide.
