Today I have another great baby project: Easy DIY Baby Swaddle Blanket Pattern and Tutorial which sews up quickly in 10 minutes..  This is perfect for anyone who wants to make a quick gift for a new baby!  Often many store bought swaddle blankets are never quite big enough to get a good swaddle, by making your own you can make one large enough for baby to grow and still wrap them up tight.  Also by using a knit, the fabric can breathe so baby doesn’t get too hot and has a slight stretch to it to help keep them snug.

For this project, you will need 1 yard of Knit fabric. You can use Jersey Knit or Interlock (not as stretchy) for this project.  I used an organic interlock knit from Spoonflower, which is fun because your choice of prints is nearly endless.  When the fabric arrives it is a little bit stiff but once you wash it, it softens right up.  My other go-to for making items for baby is Fabricworm’s Organic knit fabrics.  They have lots of great prints and are not quite as pricey.  They are also the softest fabric I have ever felt!  I really like the Wildland Collection they have right now and have been counting down the months until Tall Tales comes in (hurry up April)!

**** If using a regular sewing machine, be sure to use a ball point needle for the knit fabric to make sure you don’t have any skipped stitches.

Hello, I'm a beginner, so I'm wondering : what does it mean exactly to "backstitch and secure using a straight stitch"? After finishing your zigzag seem, you juste change the stitch to straight and do a back stitch, or do you need to do all the seem again with a straight stitch? Sorry for the stupid question and thank you!

If you google those terms there are some great basic sewing dictionary resources.

So my daughter also loves these in flannel as after-tubby towels for my grand baby who has very sensitive skin. They are big enough to really wrap around him, and so soft and absorbent! You could easily add a triangle piece of fabric in the corner for the baby’s head (like store-bought baby towels often have) but it’s really not necessary! I also made her a stack of 12” “washcloths” which she loves.

So yet another idea from this adorable pattern - for all the special babies in our lives!!!

That is such a good idea! Maybe another tutorial to make. My kids loved them when they were little.
