Color:
Carol's Tips--Use 1 yd. flannel per blanket. Cut 12" from the width for a blanket 36" x 45" wide. (Make a special shoulder burp cloth from the extra 12"  wide piece.) Remove the selvage and fold so all four corners align. Use the large curve on Round Corner Radial Rule to round all blanket's corners at once. Use the smaller curve on the ruler to round all burp cloth corners at once.

Laces for Baby Blanket

All 100% cotton. Please order in FULL YARD increments.

See Carol's Tip

 
 

Machine-Made Cluny (Cluny design will vary with availability)

All 100% cotton. Please order in FULL YARD increments.
Special $2.00 / yard.

See Carol's Tip

Color:
Carol's Tip--Preshrink before attaching. (See instructions for details). Ease generously around curved corners. Six yards will shrink to about 5-1/2 or less yards. Enough for the blanket with extra to use on the lower edge of burp cloth.
