No Slip Baby Doll Blanket Tutorial



My youngest daughter is almost 2 and always has trouble keeping her baby dolls wrapped up in their blankets. I came up with a way so her doll's won't slip out anymore.


I first cut out 2 square pieces of fabric and with the right sides together I sewed up around the 4 sides leaving a spot to turn ride side out.



I next cut a rectangular piece of fabric to place diagonally across the blanket. Press the edges in.

Before you pin into place you will need to stitch the top of the fabric that will be the opening.
Next you pin the top fabric to the bottom fabric. This will become the pouch that the doll slips into.
Sew the 3 sides of the fabric, leaving the top open.
Now you have attached the fabric that is the pouch for the doll.


No more slipping baby dolls!!
