HOW TO MAKE:

FOR THE BLANKET

  1. Cut out two pieces of fabric 114cm x 144cm.

  3. Turn round the right way.
  4. Cut out a piece of wadding 110 x 140cm.
  5. Put the wadding inside the blanket.
  6. Sew up the gap by hand.

FOR THE HANDLE

  1. Cut out two strips of fabric 60 x 10cm.
  2. Cut out one piece of fabric 30 x 10cm.
  3. Fold each in half lengthways, right sides together, sew along the seam.
  4. Turn through the right way and iron flat with the seam in the middle.
  5. Create loops with the long pieces by inserting one end into the other, neatening any raw edges as you go.
  6. Sew the handle  on top of each loop, tucking the edges in underneath.
  7. Add buttons on top to finish.
