I truly honestly cannot believe that I have had this blog for a year and I’ve never once posted a picture of my tiny little baby on here. And by tiny little baby I mean my dog Spanky. What? He’s my baby.
I mean the problem is that I can’t really use him in food photos because I need my food props to not eat the food. So he doesn’t have his cute face on here until now that he gets his own post.
When I saw this David Bowie frenchie fabric I knew that I couldn’t pass it up. The only problem was they only had one yard left and so even though I was planning on making it a big blanket for me it worked out that I would use it for Spanky. I mean he is a frenchie after all. It was meant to be his.
He has also commandeered a cushion on my couch that is smashed down and has a hole in it where he pulls the stuffing out so I have to keep it covered to keep him from sticking his chubby little head in the hole. He does love laying in that spot though so now he has a nice little blanket just for him.
This blanket is so ridiculously easy to make and I know that I said this is a puppy blanket but you could also make this for any tiny humans in your life. It’s just a wee bit easier than making a quilt.
So if you’re looking for a quick and easy sewing project this is just the one for you.
What You Need:
- Place fabric right sides together so that the backsides of the fabric are facing up and the patterned sides are on the inside.
- Pin fabric all the way around so that it stays in place.
- Start sewing a ½ inch seem all around the blanket.
- Once you’ve made it to the last side that you’re sewing together make sure to not sew the fabric all the way closed. Leave about a 4 inch hole.
- Stick your hand inside the blanket and pull the blanket inside out. Poke the edges out with your fingers.
- When the blanket is turned out and facing the right way sew the hole closed by folding the edges of the fabric in. Start sewing a ¼ inch seam at the hole and then continue all the way around the blanket.
