Make Your Own: Hand-Me-Down Quilted Patchwork Blanket / Throw

This simple to make yet gorgeous piece will be so special once it’s finished that it could end up being a family heirloom passed down generations, and even if it doesn’t you will be sure to cherish it for many years to come.


Kids grow so fast don’t they, how many times have you dusted off your daughters pretty party dress or your son’s best shirt for a special occasion only to discover it no longer fits them. Certain items of your children’s clothing inevitably develop sentimental value and it’s often heartbreaking when you have to give them al away.

Instead, why not make this beautiful hand-me-down quilted patchwork blanket and create what is sure to be a truly treasured piece.

What You Will Need:

  • Sewing Machine (or Needle & Thread)
  • Selection of your Child’s Outgrown Clothing
  • Card
  • Tape Measure or Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Toy Stuffing

Please Note: This project is designed to be a “work-in-progress” and is a piece you will often return to as your child grows.

How To Make It:

  • From the card, cut out yourself a square template that you will use to measure out each patch. Around 5″x5″ (12.5cm x 12.5cm) is a good size. Allow an extra 1 – 2 cm along the edges when cutting out the fabric for your hem.

  • Using the template cut out x 2 squares from each item of clothing you have – One square will be the front of the patch and a plainer section for the back. (Be creative when selecting your front patch piece. make use of pockets buttons, patches, lettering, seams, labels etc to make each patch as unique and as interesting as possible.)

  • Pin your pieces together reverse side up, sew around leaving a small 1.5 – 2″ gap along one side to turn out. trim the corners, turn it out – press the patch if needed and fill with a good handful of stuffing. Repeat this until you have a few patches complete.

  • Begin building the quilt by sewing the patches together, sealing the holes you left for turning out as you do so.
  • Keep going until you have used your batch of clothing and come back to the blanket when you have a new batch of grown out clothes.

In no time at all, your blanket will be large enough to use and you can still continue to add to it until it’s reached your desired size.

Suggestion: If the piece you want to use doesn’t yield enough fabric for a patch you can use a plain white cotton for the back instead.

Special Patches

The beauty of this blanket is that each patch tells a story, and fits into the timeline of your childs life, creating a truly unique and special piece:
