I love to make gifts for people I care about, and baby presents top my list of favorite things to make.  This fun blanket is great for all your “geeky” friends, and it doesn’t just have to be for babies.  I know I want to make one for myself!


This post first appeared at Dollar Store Crafts, where you can find me every Tuesday!


Step one:  Iron the fusible web onto the back of the wash clothes.

Step two:  Use a template to trace the ghosts, PacMan, eyes, and circles on the paper part of the fusible web.

Step three:  Cut out all the pieces, remove the paper backing, and arrange on the blanket.

Step four:  Once you’ve arranged the pieces, iron them on.

Step five:  Use paint to make eyes on the ghosts.

If this blanket will get handled and washed quite a bit, you’ll probably want to stitch around the edges of the appliques to reinforce them.  I think this would make an adorable photo prop, or just a fun play mat for baby to lounge on in style.  You could always make a full size version for an awesome addition to a teen’s room.  Have fun crafting and creating!
