How To Make A Sun Protection Baby Blanket
Gather materials: sun protective fabric, double gauze, 20 inches of 1” webbing, and 10” of 1” hook-and-loop tape.
Grab some tools: rotary cutter & mat, ruler, & sewing clips.
Pre-wash your double gauze fabric. It should puff up a little after washing and yes, it will shrink and become uneven. This is unwashed.
1
Cut a 31” x 37” piece of sun protective fabric. Cut the double gauze at 32” X 38” to leave room for shifting.
2
Place the fabrics right sides together and clip one of the short straight edges together to prepare for sewing. Clip part of one long edge as well.
3
Cut four pieces of webbing that measure 5” each. Singe the ends to finish them.
4
Insert the webbing on the short edge so that it is 1” away from the long edge and clip.
5
Sew the clipped short edge of the blanket using 1/2” seam allowance.
6
Clip one line straight edge of the blanket to prepare for sewing. Then sew the edge using 1/2” seam allowance.
7
Trim after sewing the edges that were straight. Then clip and finish sewing.
8
Fold blanket & clip to keep dimensions square(ish). Follow the straight line of the non-stretch fabric to trim the excess gauze.
9
Clip the final short edge & insert webbing. Sew the final edge using 1/2” seam allowance. Leave a 3” turning hole in middle of the edge.
10
Turn the blanket rights side out.
11
Finger press the sides and clip to prepare for top stitching. Top stitch 1/8” from edge.
12
Cut four 2.5” pieces of hook and loop tape. Clip to secure for sewing.
13
Use a zigzag stitch to sew around each rectangle to secure it to the webbing and blanket.
14
The blanket is finished!
