2 pieces of fabric 18” x 20” to 22”

The best type of fabric for this project is fleece or flannel. You will need a ½ yard to make one blanket with the same design on both sides. Or if you want the blanket with two different fabrics, you will have to purchase 1/2 yard of each fabric and you can make 2 blankets.


From the fleece or flannel fabric, cut two pieces 18" x 20 to 22".

Place the two pieces of fabrics with wrong sides together making sure the outside edges are even all the way around.

With the scissor, cut a square from each corners 2” x 2”.

Cut slits around all four outside edges 2” long and about ½” apart.

Pick up two corresponding pieces (one from front and one from back) and tie a knot. Continue doing this all the way around the blanket.

The blanket is done and ready to keep your American girl doll warm.

Make a matching blanket for yourself.
