This is one of the easiest things I’ve sewn in a while.
Two yards of flannel in coordinating prints, cut precisely, selvage removed
Coordinating thread and bobbin
Sewing norms – scissors, pins, etc.
Pressing cloth if your iron hates you
Match up your fabrics right sides together. Pin. Sew with seam allowance of your choice – I used 1/2 inch. Be sure to leave a gap at the bottom. I used a stitch that is a combination straight stitch and zigzag to prevent fray. Press seams. Clip corners. Turn right side out through gap. Use a point turner for the corners, but be careful not to poke any holes (ask me how I know). Press. Top stitch (you can get fancy here with the decorative stitches) around the outside edge. Easy!
I know I didn’t take a bunch of in-progress photos for this tutorial, but it’s fairly straightforward. Let me know if you have questions.
I made this one for my little sister’s teacher. Definitely a project I will repeat for future gifts. It seems like everyone’s having babies this year!
