Sew Crazy ??

Monday, March 9, 2009

I've been feeling the crafty bug lately and had an opportunity to work on the sewing machine this weekend. Behold my first attempt at a baby tag blanket. A couple of our friends are having baby girls this spring and summer, so I thought I'd do a test run. It wasn't too hard -- it only took me a little under 3 hours from start to finish. Once you come up with a game plan, it only takes a little sewing, and I opted to semi-quilt it. This one is 24" x 24" not big enough for a snuggly blanket and maybe a little to large for a baby to hold...mental note to change that.

The pictures aren't great, but I love the brown and pink striped fabric I used for the back and found sound cute little monkeys to tie in with the polka dots on the front. I have lots of flannel baby scraps, so I think I'll use some of those on the next one.
