New Video Tutorial: Self Binding Blanket

I’m sure you’ve seen this method used for baby blankets, but did you know that you can also make a nice throw using this same method?  It’s fast, simple and makes a great handmade gift!  I confess I still have a little Christmas self binding blanket tutorial Follow Me on Pinterest sewing I’m trying to get in.  My little girls love this blanket and I just might have to make them their own for Christmas.

Did I mention that I’m keeping this one for me?  I am!  It’s one of the few projects that I’ve made that I’m not giving away.  I’ve already snuggled under it while watching TV in our cold basement.  I must warn you that the wonderful combination of soft Cuddle fabric doubled up for warmth will cause dozing.

For this project you will need:

2 yards of Fabric 1

2 1/3 yards of fabric 2

Rotary Cutter, Ruler and Mat

Marking pen

Sewing machine

Walking foot (optional, but recommended)

    I HAVE A QUESTION. I UNFORTUNATELY FOUND THIS TUTORIAL AFTER I HAD PURCHASED FABRIC TO MAKE A REVERSIBLE FLEECE BLANKET. I LOVE THIS METHOD! HOWEVER, I PURCHASED 2 YARDS OF EACH FABRIC SO I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH. SO WOULD I JUST REDUCE THE SIZE OF ONE PIECE OF FABRIC BY 12″? WILL THAT BE TOO SMALL? IT IS FOR A 18 YEAR OLD. THANK YOU.

      Hi Diane,
      It will reduce the size of the blanket – it will still be a nice size for a lap blanket. If you 18 year old is on the tall side it might be an issue. But if they are average height I would think it would be fine.

        I too bought 2 yards of each fabric before watching the tutorial. Do I reduce all four sides proportionally or just the length by 6 inches? I am a little confused about what the new dimensions should be if the 2nd fabric is only 72 inches long. thank you.

          Hi Dianne,
          Let’s see if I can explain this better. You will need to cut down one of the fabrics. To make a 2.5 inc h border each side needs to be 5 inches shorter than the outside fabric. To you need to cut off 10 inches from the length and height of one of the fabrics. So the dimensions should be 62 by 50 for one, and 72 by 60 for the other.

            Thanks, that makes sense. I thought both pieces would have be reduced, but wanted to make sure before I cut it. With this freezing cold, a good time to stay in and get some sewing projects caught up.
