Blankets for Moroccan Orphanage

 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.



  1. Great idea. What type of batting do you use for these?
