HOW -TO PAGE
Buy A Square
flannels4baby.com sells our flannels in a unique way for those making the larger square baby blankets. Our "Buy A Square" purchase option is approximately 45 inches by 45 inches - a square. Select the number of squares of a print or solid flannel. You are purchasing 1 1/4 (1.25) yards of flannel for the price of the square.
Why Should I Use Cotton Flannel?
100% cotton flannel/flannelette is the best choice you can make for your baby because it "breathes". This is a unique characteristic of the natural fiber - cotton. A warm cotton flannel swaddling blanket allows air to circulate around your baby and also keep them warm when they are wrapped snuggly. Cotton flannelette also can be laundered at higher temperatures so you can be sure it is clean the next time you use it.
The fleece blankets are made from polyester, an oil based fabric. While they are soft and cozy, they do not let air circulate around your baby.

Tutorial for the Prairie Points and How-To Apply Satin Blanket Binding have been updated and pictures added.
Wrights Satin Blanket Binding
The smooth silky feeling of satin blanket binding is a nice contrast to the soft fuzzy feeling of the flannel fabric. We carry a selection of the Wright's Satin Blanket Binding that you can use to finish the edge of your flannel baby blanket. We have a tutorial on our How - To Page showing steps to apply the binding to your blanket. We also used the binding to make Prairie Points for the edge. See this tutorial
Flannel Baby Blankets
When you do not have the time or the talents to create your own flannel receiving blankets you can purchase them from us. The Flannel Blankets page has some finished 42 inch swaddling blankets ready to ship. You can also select any of our prints or solids and have them hemmed or made with two fabrics.
