A VIDEO is being added to the you tube so you can watch how to make it in addition to reading the directions!

Okay, so I’m gonna kill like 37 birds with one stone.  (Maybe it’s only 2 birds, who cares!  Yay for multi-tasking!)

Folksy Flannel Blanket

First:  Every single print from Anna Maria Horner’s Folksy Flannel is here.  They are the first flannels that I’ve carried.  That is how much I love them.  I used them for the blankets shown here today.  And this print may become jammie pants for Haley soon.

Second: I’ve created a downloadable tutorial for you so that you can make your very own Magic Binding Blanket.  (aka self-binding.  BUT I really like a little bit of magic better.  Sounds more fun….and dare I say, magical?)


Folksy Flannel Blanket

I decided that download was the way to go.  Takes up less room on the blog, but still makes it available to those of you interested.  Please let me know if you have any questions.  I included a few pictures to help along the way. Also let me know if there are errors so I can fix them!

  4. It’s saying the file is damaged here too.

  5. Would love to try the tutorial. But can’t seem to download it. Any chance you could email it to me?
    Thanks for sharing and that flannel is just soooo pretty.

  6. It’s working fine now. Thank you!

  7. love the tutorial on binding.. I had no problems downloading it.. Now, I think you need to do a tutorial on how to upload a pdf to your wordpress blog. I’m being completely serious…I’ve looked everywhere and can’t find one that makes any sense at all.

  8. Thanks so much for the great tutorial. I was a little confused about it until I actually sat down and made a blanket. Not nearly as confusing. Love it. Just discovered your blog–will be visiting you often. Thanks again.

  9. Um, hello? Love this! Totally love the cheat! I’m all about fudging and I love this trick – thanks!

  10. […] going to make Haley some jammies from the Anna Maria Horner flannels?  Well, I did…see it here if you must.    Anyway, when I asked Haley which print she wanted for her pajama pants, she […]

  11. I’m trying to make this and I’m a little confused on the layout. I put the smaller square on top of the larger square and sewed around it leaving the quarter inch at each corner but then the excess would be on the inside?? What am I doing wrong??? I love this blanket, just really want to finish it :(
