Every cute, new baby needs a cute, handmade blankie! This one is for a friend's new little girl. She's joining her two big brothers, and I'm sure they aren't spoiling her. (yeah right!!) Her mommy is not so fond of pink, so I chose lime green and purple as my main colors. I haven't given it to her yet, so I hope that she will like it. I love all of the smiling bugs in the center!
The center block is made from really soft flannel. I blanket stitched the block to the fleece. A very simple project, but also quite cute. I like the way that it turned out. I had planned to tie the fringe around the outside, but I decided that it would have made the middle too small. Instead, I sewed in about 2 3/4 inches in all the way around the blanket and simply cut the fringe. This will make a great stroller blanket or a great place to play on the floor. The back is solid purple.
In other news I took the day off today to go on my second grader's fieldtrip to the zoo! I went from one zoo to another! :) We had a great time, although I always feel so sorry for the bored and annoyed looking animals.
This was the first time that the rhino was ever standing up when I have visited. He definitely didn't disappoint as he went potty in front of us. The boys thought that was totally cool. Gross!!
Here's hoping that your evening is not a "zoo"!
