Easy DIY Swaddling Baby Blankets

 Here is my first project that I have completed for my new little man.
*Flannel Swaddling blankets* 
It's great to have some other colors besides pink and purple in my blanket stash :)

Take a piece of flannel, cut to the size of blanket you like (I do mine 36"x36"), simply turn over the edges twice and sew a finished edge.  Simple, very functional and super cute.  I made these same blankets for my baby girls so I know they work!!

Where did you find the brown, farm fabric? I have used that same print scrapbook paper to make things for my little boy's room. I would love to have matching fabric.

mathstamp: It's a doodlebug print as you may already know (love their stuff) and I found it at a fabric store here in Utah. You could try etsy and see what you come up with. This is the info on the selvege-
