Thomas the Train Toddler Blanket/Comforter

*Re-blogged Past Post with Update*

I’ve been searching for the perfect bedding for Baby Dude. He loves Thomas the Train so i thought that would be a great theme for his room. Bing proved to me that I don’t like any of the Thomas and Friends themed bedding sets. So, to Hobby Lobby I went.

While at Hobby Lobby I found these awesome prints:

The fabric on the left is regular cotton, the one on the right is flannel. I thought about making a reversible quilt with the two fabrics. That project would be nice and easy not to mention quick. My friend Bing told me there is a such thing as easy “quilt strip patterns” that are available for free. This tutorial looks like it is really easy! Here is a great tutorial for quilt binding.

I will let you know how it goes!

*UPDATE*
So I followed the tutorials that I mentioned above (with a little personal tweaking) and the blanket turned out great! It’s awesome to have a reversible comforter for Topher. The blanket is flannel on one side, regular knit cotton on the other. I even had enough material left over to make him a matching pillow to go with it.  Let me tell you, Topher hasn’t shown interest in any other blanket since I made this set. It’s a hit!

Hi, I'm April Momma. I am a stay-at-home mother of 2 awesome kids and like all moms I wear multiple hats. Most days I'd like to think I wear all of them well at all times but that's a joke. I get by the best I can and that's the truth. Aside from being a mother I am a wife, pretty good cook, good intermediate seamstress, musician, music lover and blogger.
