Guest Post!!!

Hello again Lovely Being Grown Up readers!!

I am very much excited to be blog swapping once again with the lovely Ashley!

Truly Lovely

If you're really missing your daily dose of Ashley, you can give her a visit over at my blog today, where she's sharing a lovely tutorial of her own! :)

Today I would like to share a SUPER EASY fleece blanket tutorial with you!!

The materials needed are:

3 yards of fleece fabric

1 package of coordinating satin blanket binding

Coordinating yarn

Coordinating sewing thread


Yarn Needle


Sewing Machine


In this case I went with zebra fabric and all red coordinating materials.

First trim your fleece fabric of any uneven edges or those funky white labeled edges... You know what I'm talking about... :)

Then, using the Yarn Needle, stitch your thread down the two length sides of your fabric like so... I spaced each stitch about a half an inch apart...


Next you'll pin and trim your satin binding to the two width sides (the two shorter sides)... The binding will have a fold down the middle, simply line that fold up with the edge of your fabric, making sure it's centered so there's an even amount of binding on both sides...


Fold over the edges of the binding to make your four corners and pin those as well. You can either trim or fold the extra binding inside to make your corner.


Once you have the binding pinned onto both sides, get out the sewing machine. I used red thread to match the binding...

If you sew really well, you can use a varying color of thread for added pop!!! I don't so much... SO matching thread hides my inexperienced sewing skills. :)


Simply sew the binding to the fleece pulling pins as you go.

And TaDA!!!! A SUPER EASY fleece blanket made by you!

They make great baby gifts, or gifts for friends or family!! :)



Hope you enjoyed my tutorial!!

I would love it if you would pop over to Truly Lovely to say hi!
