So here's hoping my brother and sister-in-law don't peek at my blog between today and Saturday (their shower)! Cause these are the baby blankets for my niece to be! :) SIL loves Winnie the Pooh--so I made a Cozy Blanket with this pretty blue toile Winnie the Pooh fabric. I added an "I" in pink rick-rack to the bottom right corner. :) The back is white chenille. My bro is a baseball fanatic--so I just HAD to get this baseball fabric for his baby! I bought it before they found out the sex of the baby--figured I could girly it up if need be! :) It has a red swiss dot backing, a layer of batting, jumbo red rick rack around the edges, and I tied it with red ties. :) I normally do not like ties on blankets/quilts--but this one--with the vintage-looking baseball fabric and the sweet rick rack--it just NEEDED red ties! Nothing else seemed right to me.
I'm super-tired today--last night I was FULL of ideas. I spent 2.5 hours turning my bedroom light on and off in order to write everything down (cause I'm horrible at remembering things). Ideas for the craft fair displays, ideas for new things to make--it was crazy! :) Why do these ideas seem to always come when I'm supposed to be asleep? :)
