Lovey Blankets w/ a Twist

Remember the Patchwork Lovey Blankets that I posted about a few weeks ago?  Well I figured out a cute way to add some functionality to them.  Not only does Everett always drop his paci everywhere (see post here) he also likes to throw/drop his blanket- especially if we are at a not so clean establishment.  While I was making the latest Lovey Blanket I thought that I would probably be able to add a ribbon or piece of fabric to it that was longer and could snap to the blanket..  so easy! Here’s how to do it:

These cute little lovey blankets are available in my Etsy store!

Patchwork “Lovey” Blankets

Item: Patchwork “Lovey” Blankets
Why I wanted to make this:  My son likes to hold on to things and especially loves to hold onto a blanket when he falls asleep.  If you read all of the parenting books and ask your pediatrician they will likely tell you not to let your baby sleep with a blanket just yet, so after thinking about it in my head I decided that a little “lovey” blanket may do the trick.  I had a few pieces of fabric left over from Everett’s Sprocket Pillow and Patchwork Pillows to make a few of these cute little blankets.
Items you will need: 
– 9: 4″x4″ squares of fabric
– 1: 11″x11″ square of flannel or cotton
– Various colors of ribbon
– Sewing machine with thread
How to do it:

After I made one for Everett, I came up with an idea to make it even better!  More on that soon!

Enjoy!
