Rolled Hem Blankets

June 22, 2009 in General, Projects, Tips & Tricks

I recently discovered some of the amazing features on the Lauren. For the past couple of weeks I have been trying different things on the serger and recently learned of the rolled hem. baby-blankets-001 The rolled hem is a simply a hem made from thread to prevent raveling. On a traditional hem you fold the fabric over the edge to get a nice finished looked, but for a rolled hem thread is used instead. Pull out a nice set of napkins and you'll likely see a rolled hem around the edge. baby-blankets-002 I used this technique to create receiving blankets for my friend. Most store-bought receiving blankets are 30" x 30", which doesn't really allow you to wrap up the baby. So, I made her 36" x 36" blankets that would also work great for swaddling. And, the best part, I got to pick out the fun flannel fabrics!
