• Cut out the two pieces of material that make the body of the blankie into a square of about 20cm x 20cm. Use a glass to shape the corners into a neat arc. • Cut each piece of ribbon to about 6cm in length and fold in half. • Place one piece of material with the right side facing up. Pin the folded ribbon to the edges so the closed side faces out. Tack the ribbon onto the material using your needle and thread. • Place the other piece of material right side down on top of the first. In other words, the two right sides are facing each other. • Using your sewing machine sew all along the edge so that the ribbons are secured to the material and the two pieces of material are secured to each other. Leave half of one side open so that you can pull the material right side out and have the ribbons facing out. Close the gap neatly using your needle and thread.
