Baby Blanket

 

I am going to make this baby blanket out of white fleece and baby blue ribbon

I bought a June Tailor "Fancy Ruler" to make the slits and scallops. I love the elegant look.

 

from http://www.junetailor.com (left click creative center, then scroll down to Project sheets, scroll down to fleece projects) (From creativity then to project instructions to learn to use her rulers) I have the JT-783 Fancy Fleece™ Ruler

 

 

Fancy Fleece™ No-Sew Blanket

 

Materials:

 

1 yard Blue Fleece Fabric

1 yard Green Fleece Fabric

8 yards 15/16” White Grosgrain Ribbon

June Tailor® Fancy Fleece™ Ruler

Rotary Cutter

Rotary Cutting Mat

 

Instructions:

 

Cut both pieces of fleece to measure 35” x 54”. With wrong sides together, layer the two pieces of fleece matching edges. Pin the two pieces of fleece together if desired to keep them from moving while continuing to work on your blanket.

 

Beginning with the 35” blanket width, draw a line 3” up from edge. Aligning the printed line of the “slit cuts” section of your Fancy Fleece™ Ruler with the 3” line you drew, begin cutting slits 5” in from the outside edge through both layers of fabric. Continue cutting the 1” long slits, 1” apart across width of blanket, stopping 5” from opposite edge. You should have a total of 26 slits cut. You must have an even number of slits cut.

 

Repeat for opposite width of blanket.

 

Draw a line 3” up from edge of 54” length of blanket. Aligning the printed line of the “slit cuts” section of your Fancy Fleece™ Ruler with the 3” line you drew, begin cutting slits 5 1/2” in from the outside edge through both layers of fabric. Continue cutting the 1” long slits, 1” apart across width of blanket, stopping 5 1/2” from opposite edge. You should have a total of 44 slits cut. You must have an even number of slits cut.

 

Repeat for opposite length of blanket.

 

Cut grosgrain ribbon into 2 pieces measuring 62” for the width of the blanket and 2 pieces measuring 82” for the length of the blanket.

 

Beginning at one corner, weave ribbon over and under slits making sure that ends appear at the same side of the blanket. Repeat ribbon weaving for all sides of your blanket, again making sure that all ends appear on the same side.

 

Tie ribbon ends into bows at each corner.

 

Fold blanket in half lengthwise. Place the straight edge adjacent to the wavy edge portion of the Fancy Fleece™ Ruler, on the fold of your blanket. With the entire wavy edge of the ruler appearing just inside the blanket edge, cut through all four layers of fleece. Press ruler down firmly on your fabric to avoid movement. Lift ruler and align with previously cut waves and continue cutting to the corner.

 

Repeat for opposite side of blanket.

 

Open blanket and fold in half widthwise. Repeat same process that was used to wavy cut the width of your blanket to cut the lengths.

 

Remove any pins that were used to hold your blanket layers together
