Flannel Swaddle Blanket...

I had the opportunity to go to M&L Discount Fabric Store this weekend (If you live in Southern MUST go! I've had a couple friends recommend it, and why I waited so long to go I'll never know). It was very theraputic after a LONG week of potty training. I found some great flannel prints, and decided to make some receiving blankets inspired by the ever so popular Swaddle Blankets. It was my favorite blanket with my first, so I was hoping to make a few of my own for a fraction of the cost.

1 yard of flannel
Matching Thread
I traced a large dinner plate to get the rounded corners.
Cut on the line.
After it's been cut. I took a lot of time ironing, folding and pinning it into place. I folded it over once about a 1/4 inch, ironed, folded it over again, ironed and pinned into place.
I used a decorative stitch to sew it up. I think it added a fun touch to the blanket.
The finished blanket folded and sewn!
