Baby Blanket Sewing Patterns

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, there will always be a time when you need something to wrap your baby in to keep them cozy. There is nothing better than having something you made yourself which is why we have created a list of the best baby blanket sewing patterns. Each one is unique, will wrap the baby nicely, and is free. They also make an excellent gift for anyone who is expecting or for a first visit.

Baby Blanket Play Mat

A sensory blanket is great for a baby as the developing months of their lives are all about touch. This baby blanket sewing pattern encourages them to explore the world around them and of course, is nice and snuggly when wrapped around them.

Using a variety of textures, the pattern itself is relatively simple, yet looks and feels great. This is because of the likes of faux fur which will capture babies’ interest, as well as the tags around the outside which can be used to tie soft rings and other baby-friendly items.

Use pastel colors to ensure this is a blanket that can be passed down, and kept as a keepsake.

Minky Satin Baby Blanket

The saying ruffle of these plush baby blankets helps to give them a luxurious feel. This is the sort of blanket that looks expensive but can be made for a fraction of the price of what you would pay in-store.

It can be made to be double-sided so you can mix things up or stay consistent with the same print.

A layer of flannel between the two minky pieces stops it from slipping so baby can roll, play, explore, and whatever else they feel like on this soft and adorable blanket.
