Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Blanket



A few months back, my nephew celebrated his third birthday.  Both of my nephews are big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fans. Living in a house full of girls, I must say that I don't know many details about them. I do know that Raphael is his favorite, so I decided to make his gift accordingly.

Maybe I'm weird, but one of my favorite things to make ( and have) is a blanket. Of course I decided that anyone that is a fan definitely needs a TMNT blanket to cuddle with!  

I love all the fleece and flannel prints that are available. With their popularity right now, I easily found TMNT fabric I liked. I chose a fleece print for one side and a turtle green fleece for the other.  You could use either fleece or flannel, but I find flannel easier to work with.


I cut my material into 1 yard squares.  This was just going to be a throw blanket for a three year old, but you can make it longer if you wish.  Next I cut a strip of red flannel material about 8 inches high and the width of my blanket.  Fold under the long edges of this strip and press in place. 


I cut out eyes from craft sized sheets of white and black felt.  Stitch the black circles in place on to your white eyes.  Place your eyeballs on to the middle of the red strip and stitch in place around the outside edges. 


Place your red strip on to the front of your green solid fabric.  Sew along the top and bottom edges of the strip.  Now place the front (right side) of your solid against the right side of your printed fabric.  The wrong sides of both fabrics should be facing out.  Pin together and sew around the outside edges, leaving a 6-8 inch opening. 


Turn your blanket right sides out.  Pin your opening together.  Sew around the outside of your edges again, making sure to sew the edges of your opening closed.


Your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle blanket is ready for cuddling!  This is a great gift for any TMNT fan and would be perfect for the cooler weather that is to come.  Cowabunga, dude!

This article examines both sides of the coin and provides an appropriate insight into the phenomenon of shopping of books online. 메이저사이트추천
