Yesterday I shared how you can hand stitch or hand quilt around a shape or motif on your fabric. Specifically on double gauze fabric with a butterfly. In today’s post, I want share how you can make a baby lovey with double gauze fabric 2 different ways. A lovey is a small blankie or security blanket. Great for car rides or stroller rides and it’s nice when baby doesn’t get attached to a giant blanket 😉 These can vary in size, I often use up scraps. I like to keep it at least 12 inches on 1 side.
Here is the first method, featuring a hem 😉 I like the hem because in my experience babies like to chew on the corners 😉
Fabric with motif
Pearl Cotton #8
Thimble (I don’t use one, but you may want to) You can also use a band aid on that finger 😉
Thimble Pad (another thimble option)
Snips (or sharp scissors)
Here is the 2nd method. It doesn’t have a hem, but still super easy.
*Be careful when you do big stitch quilting to make sure little fingers won’t get caught.
See the video tutorial below for the step by step instructions!
