I'm a sucker for a sale....
Regular price - $4.99
Sale price - $4.95
I mean think of all those things I could do with the four pennies saved. Endless possibilities really.
Honestly, I'm not THAT bad although I did find this fabric on sale and had to put it to use.
Put an adorable hoot owl on something and I'm out the door with a bag over my arm.
I made this simple baby quilt and did the quilting myself to save some dough.
Wanna be cool and crafty like me?
- 1 Charm pack (mine is Ten Little Things from the Moda brand)
- 1 yard of coordinating fabric for the backing
- 2/3 yard for borders
- 1/3 yard for binding (this may be a little generous but it depends on how thick you want the binding)
Lay out your squares in a pleasing manner. If you have a super keen eye, you will notice that I held some of mine back to make a coordinating taggie blanket.
Sew together your horizontal rows first.
Cut four 2.5 inch strips the width of your blanket.
Stitch them in there.
Since I had enough fabric left over, I did a 3 inch border all the way around the edges.
Layer your backing fabric, batting and top fabric.
I chose to quilt it myself to save a little dough. Dinero. Moolah.
Trim your edges clean and add the binding. I chose a neutral gray since the quilt is so busy.
Here's the taggie blanket to join.
