Oh wow! I wanted to make some for my nieces baby for a gift but looked at some other patterns and they looked too complicated so I passed. I wish I had found this sooner. Great swaddle blanket tutorial. So simple and fast and not much fabric. I love how she designed it with the clorox pen so you can design your own pattern. If you have even wanted to make some for yourself or gifts check out this tutorial. Even has pictured step by step pictures.

These swaddle blankets are so easy and inexpensive to make. The ones in this tutorial are gauze and make a wonderful comfy, snug swaddle. I have also made them out of cotton knit fabric. My daughter found knit sheets at the thrift store so we cut them into swaddle blanket size and finished the edges. Perfect and budget friendly. You should definitely give them a try. You will love them. I have twin grand-babies on the way so I plan to be busy!
