I wanted to make special Christmas presents for a few of my nieces. We just got these new panels, that have a gorgeous digital design by Hoffman printed on luxurious Cuddle fabric. They have a number of different panel designs, and we got 4 of our favorites: a Cougar, Fox, Raccoon, and family of Polar Bears. I went through a few different ideas, but finally settled on something simple that utilized the favorite colors of my nieces. I picked a backing in their favorite color out of a super soft embossed Luxe Cuddle, and had it wrap to the front to create the “binding.” On the front I picked a second favorite color for the side panels, and used strips of the backing fabric to attach the front panels together. The blanket goes together super quick, which was helpful so I could get 4 done before Christmas! If you want the directions for how to put together a simple blanket using a panel here is a free pattern I put together!
All my nieces loved the gift, and I look forward to continuing the tradition over the next couple of years to make special blankets for all my nieces and nephews! If you would like to make an Easy Peazy blanket we have turned each of the panels into a beautiful kit:
