DIY: Baby Receiving Blanket/ Baby Wrap

You can see lot's baby wrap/ baby receiving blanket,
design, brand and price varies from one another.

Most of it is made of flannel

Flannel is a soft woven fabric, of various fineness. Flannel was originally made from carded wool or worsted yarn, but is now often made from either wool, cotton, or synthetic fibre. Flannel may be brushed to create extra softness or remain unbrushed. The brushing process is a mechanical process where a fine metal brush rubs the fabric to create fine fibers from the loosely spun yarns. Typically, flannel has either a single- or double-sided nap. Double-napped flannel refers to a fabric that has been brushed on both sides. If the flannel is not napped, it gains its softness through the loosely spun yarn in its woven form. Flannel is commonly used to make tartan clothing, blankets, bed sheets, andsleepwear. (Source/Read more:

You may find many of this packaging of receiving blanket in mom's store
(Mother care, Mom's Care & etc).

I bought this @ Jaya Jusco, Baby Kiko receiving blanket- Rm35.90

@Jaya Jusco, Pureen-RM20+ (if im not mistaken).
During Pureen Warehouse Sales it was RM16.90 only.

***P/S: Pureen Warehouse Sales will be at Summit, Petaling Jaya this coming April 2012.
It's very worth it to go. But get ready for the crowd.

Normally, the blanket (size: 30 x 30 inch) comes with hood.

2 is never enough. It's always good to have extra blankets.

Save more & DIY with flannel.
and I decided to buy flannel (sell per meter) at textile shop
(Nagoya/Kamdar. I couldn't find in Jakel)

and it's just RM5.50 per meter!
(way much cheaper & you can get many design).

Bak kata org; kalau baby muntah/ kotor, tukar aje yg baru. Belambak! ;p

It's 1m x 1 m (blanket sell at store: normal size: 30 x 30 inch with hood)

and of course this one is without hood.
(you can always DIY hood yourself/ just get baby's head cover -the one sell with mittens set)

i bought 6m @ Nagoya, Carrefour Wangsa Maju
RM33 only :)

Plain/ printed design all same price. Rm5.50 per meter

Gonna wash it & Softlan to make it softer.

Save More & You can spend more on other's baby stuff.

Hay. My lili hates to be wrap/bedung when she were like 1-3months. I bedung her with napkins only. Hehe. But now she had blanket busuk which is thicker than the receiving blanket. Cant sleep without the blanket! Lili had two of em, so its easy if i had to wash one of em.
