Cozy Toes Fireside Blanket

By: Anneliese for Aesthetic Nest

Curl up with a cup of coffee and your favorite book and get cozy by the fireside with this Cozy Toes Fireside Blanket.  Great for anyone, this blanket comes with a little pocket to keep your toes nice and warm!  This cozy blanket makes a great gift for the holidays and is a wonderful way to spend a cold evening indoors.  Everyone in your family will love this might have to make one for everyone in your house!

  • 2 sets of 72" x 60" fabric of your choice
  • 27" fabric for pocket
  • Sewing machine and supplies



  1. Make a double sided minky blanket (I recommend 72"x60") and bind it according to your preference. I did a self binding so it forms a nice border around the edge of the patterned blanket.
  2. Once you have your blanket, measure the width inside the binding and create a pocket panel that same width and about 27" high. Do this by sewing two pieces, right sides together, leaving a space for turning, and turning it right side out so all four edges are seamed. I used the eyelash minky for the side that shows and a brown dimpled minky for the "wrong" side, the side inside the pocket.

  3. Sew this pocket panel to your blanket by stitching very close to the seamed edge along the sides and bottom of the blanket. I used a zigzag stitch, which practically disappears in the nap of the minky. The top edge will be open forming the pocket.
  4. To keep this oversized pocket from flapping open and hanging off the blanket I stitched along the design on the printed side (I outlined two of these medallion shapes) catching the center of the top of the pocket.

  5. It is just enough to hold it closed and because the stitching follows the design it isn't distracting at all. In fact, it's pretty impossible to see. (You could stitch down the middle of the pocket, essentially forming two pockets, but I didn't think I'd like the look of the stitching line.)

is this for beginners?

This is a great idea to add a pocket to the fireside blanket to put a book in it so you can remember where it is or a stitching project or children can put their toy cars or blocks. This will make a great birthday or Christmas present or how about a new mom. Simple enough to make. I would sew the pocket on the minky fabric before I sew them together so you do not see stitching on both sides.
