After learning to make the football blanket that I did for some friends of ours, I really wanted to find a pattern for a basketball blanket. I searched all over Pinterest thinking that I would be able to find a printable pattern. WRONG! I did find a pattern here but it was not a printable pattern. Luckily I had today off and it has been a day full of crafts (of course after I worked out and did a couple of errands).
I started off by following along with the tutorial I find and before I cut everything up I scanned it in so I could share!
It was easy to do once I got through making the pattern. I am pretty sure I have friends in mind that once they decide to have kids I will be making many more of these.
You need about a yard to a yard and a half of each of the fabrics. I had a yard and I could have used a little bit more because the pattern didn’t complete fit on this fabric. I don’t care though because I think this turned out awesome!
Sew right sides together and then flip and sew up the hole.
Here are pictures of the final product!
Enjoy the free pattern! Print all six pages and tape together.
