|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.
Babies are a blessing!
