You will find 4 ideas for homemade blankets. Some involve some sewing and craft skills others don't. A little something for everyone.
A quilt is a wonderful gift to give. You can make the quilt yourself, or you can get other family members to help out. A family gift is very special. You can use fabric pens to leave a special message on your square. If you don't have a quilting machine you can either quilt it by hand or even have it sent out and have someone else do the quilting for you.
Crocheted Baby Blanket
If you don't know how to crochet, don't worry, it's not hard and there are plenty of places you can learn.
You can find directions online or you could check at your local craft or yarn store. Many times these types of stores will hold classes. You might also find a friend who knows how to crochet. She will most likely be willing to teach you how.
A hand made crochet blanket means so much. Make sure you choose very soft yarn and yummy colors to make it a lifelong gift.
No Sew Blanket
A no sew blanket is a great option for people who just don't want to sew. It is easily made with only scissors and your own two hands. It simply involves tying two pieces of fabric, usually fleece, together. You can easily find instructions for making this type of blanket online.
When you make these blankets make sure you choose great colored fleece, maybe a pattern on one side and a coordinating color on the other.
Baby Blanket Gift Basket
Not feeling crafty at all? No problem, you can still create a fantastic baby blanket gift. Just go and find a bunch of color coordinated baby blankets. Use some fabulous ribbon and roll up the blankets and tie them with the ribbon.
Once you have them tied add them to a decorative basket along with other small toys, clothes or baby things. This makes a great practical but memorable gift.
If you are looking for unique infant gifts that you still want to be practical baby blankets can be great.
Just use a little creativity and you will make a beautiful handmade gift that will be remembered for a lifetime.
