Stroller Blanket – FREE Pattern
Welcome welcome to another free sewing pattern, how-to, tutorial! This project is a quick stroller blanket. This is one of those “Oh man, the baby shower is THIS Saturday!!! I thought it was next week.” kinda projects. Download the pattern here.
It is a blanket. It is not quilted. The project is 26″ square and is backed with flannel. (You could use minkee or even polar fleece back there, if you like.) It is a narrow blanket which should be just the right fit over the little one without having a mountain of blanket bunched up on the right and left sides of the kiddo.
Much like the stroller blanket in my book, this coverlet also has a buttonhole in one corner. “Why?” You ask. Easy, this is so you can use those plastic kid links to tether the blanket to the stroller, which will keep it from slipping under the wheels as you stroll. The project in the book uses a metal grommet. A plastic grommet from the home dec department would work just as well, too.
The tutorial is a pdf download and is based on the super easy Disappearing 9-Patch block. It is made with charms + white fabric. The charms used in this project are Summer Solstice by RJR Fabrics. Of course, I also added in just a bit if digital camouflage from a recycled Army (ACU) Uniform. You could recycle denim or khaki, or use more charms or any “focus” fabric in that square where I’ve placed uniform fabric. It is totally up to you.
If you make it and want to share your version, feel free to add it to the ReannaLily Designs flickr pool.
