My First Handsewn Baby Blanket!


Practice makes perfect right? Well after practicing quite a few squares (which eventually became coasters) and place mats, I decided to kick things up a notch and sew a blanket. Today I sewed my first double-sided flannel baby blanket and I think I'm hooked! I am thinking about adding some satin trim to this receiving blanket too so we'll see~;o) Although I am clearly still amateur, I plan on making more of these. Stay tuned!

Good for you Rebecca! I'd LOVE to take the time to learn how to sew...my mind just dances with sewing ideas. I can't wait to see what else you come up with. And, was it really that easy to teach yourself ;-)

Hey Stacey! Well I guess I was really determined to learn, I have always wanted to knit and crochet but never had the patience. If you saw this blanket close up though you would see all the amateur flaws lol! This is just one of those rare moments where I said that I wanted to do something, and did it! Still very amateur, but will continue to practice~:o) Thank you so much for your sweet compliments!
