Elizabeth from Simple Simon & Co. shows how to make a baby blanket with mitered corners. The back layer is cut larger than the front so the extra fabric on the back will wrap around and frame the smaller front piece. Her tute is part of the Skirting the Issue series that encourages sewists to make handmade items to donate to charity. She’d love for you to make one or more of these blankets to bring comfort to a small child staying in a hospital. Go to her tutorial.
