Quick and Easy Cozy Flannel Blanket

Digging my stash of flannel shirts out of storage is one of my favorite things about fall.

I am crazy about flannel!

I wear it just about every day!

So when I wanted to include a new throw blanket in the living room to add some color and texture to the space it didn't take me long at all to jump on the idea making it out of flannel.

It's Soft. . . It's Warm . . .  It's Plaid!

Did I mention I'm crazy about plaid too!

What's more perfect than Plaid Flannel??

There is just no better fabric for fall.

Also the perfect way to add some color and texture to your room.

Plus it's a simple five minute project which makes it even better.

Supply List
2 yards of flannel fabric
sewing machine

Pick out a nice heavy weight flannel at the fabric store, prewash and iron if needed (I didn't bother).

The two long side seams already had a nice edge to them so I left them alone and moved on to the two raw edges at either end of the fabric.

Create a quick hem on each of the raw edges by folding the fabric over twice to encase the raw edge, pin in place.

Then simply sew a straight line along the length of the fabric, removing the pins as you go.

As quickly as that you will have a new flannel blanket to throw over a chair or on the sofa for the next time your ready to cozy up with a good book! 

Or a puppy as in this case.  
Shelby Girl didn't give up her new spot for a couple of hours!

The kids have discovered it also . . . 

I have a hard time keeping track of it as kiddos wonder off with it all the time.

May have to sew up a couple more just so everyone can have one.  LOL.

Have a great day,

  3. Stunning! I thought the first picture is the cover of your new magazine! Seriously. Even without the beautiful dog, the photo is cover art worthy.

  4. I want to do plaids for Christmas and I really love the throw you made, where'd you get your fabric from Robin? Thanks!

  5. OH I love this idea, Robin...I've never thought of making my own. Beautiful! Thank you for the inspiration!

  6. Hi Robin, I love this-thanks for sharing how easy it is to make. For the last couple of years, I've been in love with red plaid! Today I have on a read, black and white plaid shirt. Can't wait to try this.

  7. Hi Robin,
    This is beautiful. Great job. Yep I think with this being an easy project you need to sew up a few more so everyone in your house has one!!! Have a great week.

  8. Well..... I think I could manage a straight seam to make an awesome plaid throw!! I haven't found one with the colors I would like yet,,,maybe a trip to the fabric store is in order? Thanks for sharing.

  9. I have a blanket very similar to this and use it for decorating and even have used it as a shawl/scarf for wintertime.I love plaids!!!

  10. Love your cozy plaid throw. it looks so wonderful with that white background, and a doggy pal amps up the "wow". love it!

  11. I am crazy about flannel too. But so is our dog, so i never seem to have the blanket for myself :)

  12. Looks very cozy! That lucky dog. Perfect blanket for snowy days.

  13. Geez, such an easy idea! I've been thinking about buying a light throw for the living room but this idea would cost even less. Thank you!
