The frog and ladybug blankies are very easy to make. The sample blankets are 14 1/2” x 14 1/2” plus the size of the head. The frog and ladybug heads are 6 1/2” wide by 4 1/2” high (that doesn’t include the ladybug’s antennae or the frog’s eyes). You can attach the frog and ladybug heads to any size blanket that you would like, including a purchased blanket.
Flannel fabric was used for the sample blankies. You can also use cotton or fleece fabric.
The face details are embroidered so they are completely safe for babies. Toddlers will love them too! The blankies will wash and wear well. The bug can be made in primary colors for a boy or girl.
Materials Needed to Make One Blankie (either style):
-Flannel fabric (or fleece for a heavier blankie) – 1/4 yard solid for head & frog’s eyes, 1/2 yard solid for blankie front & spots on face, 1/2 yard print for blankie back
-Iron-on fusible web – 3” x 3” square for spots on face
-Embroidery floss – blue to fill in eyes & color for mouth, stitches around spots on face and outline around eyes
-Sewing thread – color that coordinates with fabrics
-5/8” Satin ribbon for ladybug – two 2 3/4” pieces of a coordinating color for antennae
-Polyester fiberfill stuffing

So easy to make and so adorable when finished. I made mine with a variety of fabrics and loved the look and feel of all the different textures. The friend I made it for loved it too!
These are adorable!
