If you’re looking for a cozy, comfortable blanket to cuddle up in this winter, you might want to consider sewing one yourself. What could be more satisfying than taking some time out of your day to make something you love? In this blog post, we will show you how to sew a throw blanket, step-by-step. By the time you’re finished, you’ll have a cozy piece of fabric that you can enjoy any time of year.
What You’ll Need
To sew a throw blanket, you’ll need fabric, thread, a straight edge, and a ruler or yardstick.
Measure the desired length of the blanket by stretching the fabric taut and making a mark on the fabric. Then measure from that mark to the opposite end of the fabric and make another mark. Cut the fabric along these marks with scissors.
Grab one end of the fabric and fold it in half so that the marked edge is now facing out. This will create your start point for sewing your blanket. Take up as much of the remaining length of fabric as you need to reach your first mark (this will be approximately 1/2 inch). Now pin this folded portion in place along your first mark with small pins. Take up enough additional Fabric so that you have a 2-inch seam allowance all around (note: You may want to make more than one blanket if you want them to be different sizes). Now sew this folded section together using a straight stitch or zigzag stitch, making sure not to stretch or pull too tight. Trim any excess Fabric off after sewing is complete. Repeat this process for each subsequent section of your blanket until you reach your second end marker.
How to Sew a Throw Blanket
There are many ways to sew a throw blanket. Rolling out the fabric and cutting it to size is one way. Another way is to use a pattern and then cut the fabric according to the pattern. You can also sew a throw blanket using embroidery or quilting techniques.
Tips for Success
When sewing a throw blanket, it is important to consider the different types of throws that are available. There are lace-edged throws, geometric prints, and even quilted blankets. Once you have decided on the type of throw you want to sew, there are a few tips for success.
To begin with, choose a lightweight cotton fabric for your blanket. This will help keep the blanket light and comfortable to wear. Next, use a straight stitch when sewing your blanket together. A bias stitch can also be used if desired, but a straight stitch will create a more durable seam. Finally, make sure to hem the edge of your throw Blanket before you finish it off. This will add an extra layer of protection against fraying and damage.
