Is 1 yard of fabric enough for a baby blanket?
You’ll need one to two yards of soft, warm fabric. For a small baby, blankets need only be a yard to a yard and a half long and two feet across. For an older child, use at least two square yards. If you want to make a fringed blanket, allow an extra three to six inches of fabric all the way around.
