I was asked to put together a baby gift for a little girl and this is what I came up with.
It is a little blanket, an organic onesie, and a rattle. I made the blanket yesterday and I absolutely love it! It is this wonderful material with suede on one side and soft sheep like stuff on the other. I also appliqued a sweet “A” in honor of her name. The size is 18″x18″.
I put some silk binding around the edge, because what child does not like the feeling of silk between their fingers. Working with silk is a beast, so I highly recommend using the pre-made silk binding. You will pay a bit more but it is totally worth it!! Of course I could not decide on what color of silk to get so I ended up buying 3 packs (ivory, pink, and brown) when I only needed one.
And of course I had to make a practice blanket for Elias before I did the gift blanket.
I love how the stitching came through on the sheep side.
Elias likes it too.
I love it when an idea pulls through with flying colors!
This is a perfect idea. I’ve been trying to think of something to make for a friend. This was a big help! 😉
