Self-binding blanket



I have been wanting to make one of these for a while, so the morning of the most recent baby shower I went to, I whipped this up. (In case you were wondering, no, I wasn't confident in my ability to do it fast, I just am really good at procrastination.) It turned out pretty well, just don't look too close. I thought about making a tutorial, but after a quick Google search, I found these links.

The blogger above used flannel for both sides. If you decide to use minkee like I did, the link below has some really good tips. Don't skip the pinning!

Super cute!

My aunt in law made one for Liam, my youngest. It's my favorite blankie. I've wanted to make one just like it, but haven't taken the time to figure it out or look up a tutorial. Thanks for doing it for me. ;)
