This homemade blanket is made from 1 yard pieces of fabric. One cotton yard is the top, one flannel yard is the bottom. Both are quilted together with NO fiberfill in between. I finish off the ends with a large satin blanket tape.
I call it a magic swaddling blanket because this style of blanket was extremely helpful to swaddle my infant daughter and coax her into going to sleep! I used similar swaddling blankets like this in conjunction with a book called The Happiest Baby On The Block. The book tells how to swaddle and "shush" a fussy baby to go to sleep.
This blanket is also the perfect size for a growing infant.
