Double Gauze Baby Blanket Tutorial with pom poms

Double Gauze Baby Blanket Tutorial with pom poms

Double Gauze fabric is kind of new out there.  It’s light, airy and perfect for swaddling babies in the summer.

This baby blanket tutorial with a video will show you how to do a double folded hem or binding….and there are pom poms on the edge!

Don’t be afraid of the pom poms.  Use a zipper foot to help stitch them on, but I’m telling you they are worth the extra fuss.

So cute and a great way to dress up a simple baby blanket or even quilt.

Materials Needed:

Double Gauze – 45″

pom pom minis – 5 1/2 yards

Baby Blanket Tutorial with Double Gauze

1- Cut your double gauze fabric so it’s square.  The piece I bought was 60 inches wide. I cut it square to the 45.  There will be leftovers….watch for a tutorial on what to do with it!

2- Double Fold the sides to make the hem or binding.  Watch the video to see how this is done-

  • fold the edge over 1/4″
  • fold the edge over again a second time 1/4″

*You’ll be stitching on top of the hem, right along the edge with the pom pom trim tucked under.  Leave your needle in the down position and check often the placement so you don’t skip the trim.

1- Lay the mini pom pom on top of the hem and stitch to secure.  Use a zipper foot to make it easier to get around the pom poms.

    want to do one for a Feb. baby; double the gauze with pom poms between? would I need to tie?
    does gauze slip when doubled?

    Holly- it does a little, but it’s not bad. You could do some large, straight line quilting if it was giving you issues.
