Baby Love

Receiving Blanket, Ribbon Blanket

It is so much fun sewing for a baby!  I just love the tiny patterns and soft fabrics.  My husbands side of the family is having a shower for a new baby girl who will make her arrival in April.  Naturally, I had to make something and I chose this cute ladybug flannel.  The pattern also has tiny flowers and leaves.  Sorry my photos aren't great  .  .  . it's tough to see the petite lady bugs making their way.  To make a receiving blanket  I serged the edges of 1 1/4 yds (to make it as big of a square as I could) rounding the corners as I went along.  Also, I sewed a ribbon blanket and it is oh, so soft.   I just love the pink minky on the back.

Burp Cloth, Bib

It always amazed me how many messes my babies could make.  How could someone so cute be so messy?  But, they were!  So, I made a number of burp cloths and a bib with soft, pink chenille on the back.

Burp Cloths
 The new mommy will be prepared for whatever little messes come her way with all of these burp cloths, don't you think?

Babies are a blessing!
