I loved my large receiving blankets when the kids were babies. My kids still use them on their beds, in the summer as a sheet, and to play with. So when a friend had her second baby I knew what I wanted to do.
The fabric is 45" wide, heavy weight, good quality flannelet from Periwinkle Quilting here in Saskatoon. I prewashed it and it's lovely and soft.
Loved the modern boyish print of this fabric. Here it is 45" square blanket.
Finished it off by serging, folding under, and zig-zaging it.
Had to give a book too - Barefoot Books - perfect for them as big sister will be reading in the next year.
From the small amount of scrap fabric I had left, I put together double sided cloths, perfect for throwing in the diaper bag for quick clean ups / burp ups!
Then bundled it all together to form the present. Tied it up using the cut-off selvages. Nothing was left to waste!
