I found this awesome green quilted fabric at D.I. a few months ago. I think there was over 2 yards of it, I got it all for less than $3. Sweet huh? I'm not really sure what the fabric is but it's really soft and kind of stretchy. I just had to get it! That's how the Dinosaur blanket came to be.
I used my daughters favorite blanket and used that to decide how big I should make it.
Then I sewed lines every 6 inches to give it a quilted look and so it would last longer.
I really wanted to try a satin edge. This is the first time I have ever done this so I was a bit nervous. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Making mitered corners was a little tricky for me. It's not perfect but I really like how it turned out. For my first time ever making a blanket like this I am pretty darn excited with the end result.
All together for this blanket I think I payed at most $8. That just makes it ever sweeter. Right?Now, I just need to wait for this little one to get here so I can snuggle him up in this Dino blanket.
