Ashley from Make It and Love It shows how to make a receiving blanket from knit fabric. It’s a lightweight blanket, made from a single layer of knit fabric. Bright binding adds a punch of color. The rounded corners are a neat look and also eliminate the need to turn the binding around a tight corner. With no bows or ruffles, the design works equally well for a boy or girl. To make the blanket, she links to a previous tutorial. In this post, she gives the templates for the whale and anchor appliques. Go to her knit blanket tutorial. Go to her post with the templates.
