No sew throw, a blanket for your 18 inch doll total cost $1.25
All you need is a fleece baby blanket from the dollar store, mine was $1.25 and it measured 28 inches by 28 inches (71.1 cm X 71.1cm) a pair of scissors and a ruler, (in the photo I have my paper slicer ruler because my ruler is missing in action) If you can use scissors and know how to tie a knot this is a great and easy under 20 minute craft.
First fold the blanket in half, then use the ruler and measure up 6 inches and cut a strait line across save this piece to do another craft with on another day, try to make the hand sew skirt with it or make a small pillow to go with the blanket .
Next on each corner measure 2 inches up and across you will be cutting out a 2inch by 2 inch square repeat on all four corners (see the photo if you are confused) once that is complete measure and cut 2 inch by 1 inch strips and make snips in the fabric all the way around the blanket (again see photo if confused) once you have cut all the way around the blanket start knotting the strips, take one strip and tie it to the one underneath it and repeat all the way around the blanket and you are done, simple easy and fun. I picked a blanket that was less "baby" then the other patterns but there are some really cute patterns at the dollar store in the baby section.If you have any questions just let me know leave a comment or email me! email@example.com
