Receiving Blanket Baby Doll



  1. Lay the receiving blanket out the wide way on a work surface. Begin rolling the blanket in from both sides until they meet in the middle. Fold the top of the rolled blanket down about two-thirds of the way. Inside the part that you have folded, where the fold is, place a ball of tissue paper (baby's head). Pull the blanket gently around to cover the tissue paper and tie around the neck with a ribbon.
  2. Turn the baby over (front to back). The arms are made from the rolled blanket which is now in back. Sit the baby up and bring the arms around to the baby's lap in front, securing the baby's lap with a stitch of thread. The legs should already be there, as they are the lower part of the rolled blanket. If you want, you can prop the baby up with a piece of stiff cardboard in back to make a stand. If you have done it right, you should have the baby.
  3. Now add the accessories. Place a newborn hat or cap on the baby's head. Cut off the mouthpiece of a pacifier and glue in place for the mouth (this is the only thing that is not usable afterwards). Place a small stuffed animal, rattle or other baby toy in the baby's hands, securing with a little thread to the blanket. Make sure to advise the mother that if she is going to use the items, to wash the blanket and remove any loose threads prior to use.
