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!
