Sewing Project: Fleece Baby Blanket

Make this wonderful baby blanket as a gift for a wee one or as something special for your own kids/grandkids.  This soft and cosy blanket is simple to make but using wonderful fabrics can look very impressive. Even with the most basic of sewing skills, you can make this lovely blanket!


In the workshop students will cover the following:

  • The basics of working with fabric and complementing colours
  • How to cut, press and pin the blanket
  • How to assemble
  • How to attach bias binding as an edging
  • Finishing touches and embellishments

In this half-day course, students will complete their blanket, ready to be used or gifted! Students must be able to use a sewing machine. You can use our machines or bring your own.


This is half-day course (4 Hours), costs €45 and it includes:

  • All tuition from an experienced tutor
  • All fleece needed
  • Some basic materials used in the class

  • 2 contrasting threads
