Baby Girl Blanket

Hello hello,

I’ve been getting my sewing on.  The first project I recently tackled was this little flannel baby blanket.  I found some flannel that I loved at fabric.com and just had to have it.  I made a rectangle (practically a square) of about 36” x 35” and just used some bias tape to go around the edges.  Easy peasy.  For a tutorial, you can check out the baby blanket over at Prudent Baby, although hers has a layer of batting to thicken things up a bit.

I’m wondering if I should have gone with a lighter pink bias tape, but I wasn’t about to go back to the store.  This one package perfectly fit around my project, which made me happy (again, I didn’t want another trip to the store).  I love how soft flannel is.

It’s got cows and ducks! Love it!

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

      ha.. thanks!
      We don’t look close up at my sewing, and we don’t think about the $19 gorgeously soft and pretty baby blanket that I saw in the store today.
