Sew an easy Blanket Buddy
Article by KarensVariety.com

Use a baby blanket and remnant of soft fabric to sew a blanket buddy, or a washcloth to make a bath toy.

Fold the blanket in half and fold again to find the centre and place a pin to mark it.

Using a fabric remnant, choose a head pattern; three are shown below, doll, bunny and teddy bear. Print it larger or smaller to suit either a blanket or wash cloth. Cut two and embroider or use fabric paint to make a face on one side.

Sew around the head leaving the bottom open for stuffing. Sew a double seam and bind the edges if the fabric will unravel. Stuff the top of the head with foam or washable fabric and insert the centre of the blanket or washcloth into the bottom half of the head. Fold the blanket or washcloth body over the hem of the head and sew.
