Weighted Blankets, Vests & Scarves

Simple Sewing Projects to Calm Children, Teens & Adults
Susan White Sullivan


A weighted blanket, scarf or vest is a powerful tool that can sooth those with sensory processing or autism spectrum disorders that have trouble sleeping by providing the deep pressure they covet. As beneficial as they are, weighted blankets can be expensive and, when made by others, don't always reflect your -- or your child's – design style.

With the help of this handy guide, anyone can learn to make a weighted blanket for their child, teen or their own use. It features step-by-step instructions along with photos and illustrations for crafting five fundamental projects: a twin-sized sleeping blanket, a lap pad, an activity blanket, a vest and a scarf.

Also included are appliqué patterns for personalizing your project and helpful weight and measurement charts that allow you to scale your projects to any size bed or recipient. Best of all, these immensely functional and beneficial projects are not overly complicated and are an ideal starting point for anyone looking to learn how to sew.
