I really wanted to make a couple blankets for Kylie, so I went out and got some flannel fabric on sale for half the price! It was a great deal for sure. Anyway, my sewing skills are somewhat limited, so I unsure how to do the handstitching to close the seam once I turned it right side out. After making a trip to our local craft store, a woman there told me to just top stitch it all the way around, and then I would have a bit of a decorative trim all around the blanket. That was a great idea, so I no longer had to worry about learning how to handstitch (though it would still be nice to learn something new...maybe next time). Here is a look at the final project of my first blanket for Kylie. You will see that I chose different fabric for the front and back of the blanket. Enjoy!
