Today my friend came over and we sewed flannel blankets for an orphanage on Morocco. She is organizing a charity event for her elementary school. The children will be able to use a needle and yarn and put ties in the blankets we prepared. It is such a fast, easy way to make blankets – and they are cute and feel homemade.
We used 1 yard of flannel for the top and 1 yard of flannel for the bottom. Layer the two pieces RST and place on batting. Sew around like you would a pillow leaving a small opening. Turn and topstitch. Now it is secure and the kids can add “ties” as the quilting.
