Nice post!
I liked your informative tip for making blanket. I do believe that we should use soft material for kids use. If you need any kind of assistance regarding baby gifts then we will be glad to lend a hand in your support.


Thank you for the tutorial. I blogged about it here... http://mayarose33.blogspot.com/2010/10/baby-blanket-shower-gift-set.html

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. very nice!


Fabulous idea! I might have to steal this for my gift giving arsenal. Great job, lady! And your blog is just delicious - good stuff.


I'm loving your tutorial! I am working on a blanket right now and have a question. If I decide to do my binding smaller than what you have measured out here, do I still measure the same amount of overhang for the mitered corners or will it be smaller?

Hi Elicia-

No, the overhang will definitely be different. Thats the trickiest part. I wish I had some math formula to tell you, but really I had to do it by trial and error. If youre binding it with a thin binding like a regular quilt, you dont really do any overhang. Thats because the width of your finished binding is about the same as the seam allowance you are sewing.

Wish I could be more help.



Your tutorial is fabulous! Thanks for sharing all the tips and inspiring me to try sewing with minkie.


What seam allowance for the bib?

I did a project similar to this one, a blanket, but I always have some difficulties with putting them together before sewing them on the machine. But yours is way much better and looks easier of course because you're an expert :) Thanks for your tutorial, now I can sew better.


Do you know where I can get some interesting binding, like polka dot or something not Disney? All I can find is Wrights and they don't have what I am looking for. I would prefer not to make it myslef.
