A variation on the rainbow blanket made with my 5-year old (she did the front side, I connected the back & the filling)
1- Cut 48 pieces from different fabrics, each of 12x55cm 2- Sew 12 pieces together on the long side. Do this 4 times 3- Sew the 4 parts together 4- You now have the front side ready 5- Sew along the 4 side of a piece of 10cm wide to give a nice border 6- Place thick fiberfill on top of the right side of the fabric 7- Place the back on top of that facing right side down 8- Sew around the whole blanket, leaving 20cm open 9- Turn the blanket the right way through the hole 10- Close the gap manually 11- Sew around the edges of the blanket, just where the border touches the coloured stripes. 12- If you can like you can also sew more pattern on the blanket, making it more a quilt
