Feather a doll’s nest with cute applique fleece blankets:

Similar to a previous post:  http://edit423.com/2011/10/07/monkey-biz/

Using coordinating & complimentary colors, shiny ric-rac, beads & rhinestone buttons for eyes.

Find a picture & use as a pattern by cutting out the different parts, or create your own bird, animal, design, etc..

Use iron-on adhesive to adhere bird parts & blanket, straight or machine stitches around the edges depending on the part.  The fleece blankets sport the perimeter knot pattern. 

Christmas is around the corner…maybe a surprise original will be under wraps?

Knotted edge fleece blankies for dolls – a simple project for kids, plus a wide range of creative options for all.

  • cut fleece pieces to desired size
  • apply appliques or decorations, use iron-on adhesive where possible 
  • flower above:  flannel with blanket stitch & button middles
  • monkey:  draw or find clip art, cut coordinating fabrics (ultra suede, button eyes, pink gingham cheeks), mixture of machine, blanket, straight & cross stitches (click pic for close-up view)
  • snip edges 1.5 – 2 inches deep, 1/2 inch wide all around
  • tie fringe in knots all around
  • ask Gramma to sew matching pj’s
