Baby blankie



This is a baby blanket, matching cap and card that I made for a new baby in the family. The blanket is a blue fleece fabric with multi colored hearts on it. The large binding surrounding the edge of the blanket is shiny white with small colored alphabets. The smaller side edges of the blanket features a blue hem binding, simply because I didn't have enough of the other to go around the whole blanket. In the corner of the blanket I made a little gingham fabric bear that I used a zig zag stitch to sew on. The hat features the same large alphabet binding and a crocheted flower with blue beading. I made a card to match by cutting out blue baby feet paper on the front centered with a blue flower and cornered with little silver feet shaped brads, on the inside is a blue transparent bear that is the same as the gingham one on the blanket. I was so pleased to hear back that the blanket is happily in use!

Hi Gina, the blanket is gorgeous. I remember my mother in law doing one just like it for my son many years ago... it will be treasured, I'm sure. Happy sewing, Nicole xox.
