The Puff Blanket

The puff blanket is perfect for cozy evenings spent with a cup of tea and a good book! I couldn’t be happier with the result and I can assure you, it’s worth all the hard work! I’m excited to share this tutorial with you!

Step One: Cut out a ton of squares. For this blanket I had 252 puffs, so I cut out 504 squares. 252 squares of pretty fabric and 252 of not so pretty fabric for the other side of the square.

Step Two: “Puff” your squares with fluffy cotton. Simply sew around a pretty fabric square and the extra square (under side) and leave a small hole for stuffing cotton into your square. Once your square is puffy to your liking, sew it up! (My squares were probably too puffy…or is there such a thing?)


Step Three: Arrange your puffs! I tried to strategically place my puffs so no alike puffs were near each other.

Step Four: Number the back of your puffs (no one will see this side). I made eighteen rows with fourteen puffs in each row. So for the first row I numbered my puffs: 1-1, 1-2 … and for the next row, 2-1, 2-2… and so on.

This is what the back looks like.

This is the front!

Step Five: Now you’re ready to sew your puffs together. After you sew all of your puffs together in rows, sew all of your rows together!

Step Six: Sew the back fabric on! I used an old comforter for the back, you can read more about the fabrics I used and why here.

And you’re finished!

Now put the kettle on and cuddle up in the fluffiest blanket you’ve ever made!

    1. Thanks! It seems so simple doesn’t it? If you ever make one, just know it is time consuming! BUT absolutely worth it!

    1. Thank you Irene! I was going to, but it would be hard to get in between the puffs. So, I’ve thought about hand stitching. It would take forever, but it would mean a lot!

  1. That seriously looks like a lot of long hard work! Even just laying it all out how you want and numbering them must’ve taken awhile! Truly impressive! And it really does look sooo fluffy, like a cloud blanket! :) One of my girlfriends in High School had a huge quilt like this that she had made on her bed, I always thought it was so pretty!

  2. This is amazing, I love how it has all come together and using scraps of fabric with meaning is even better.

    I am going to do this :)
    Such a lovely thing to share Amber x
