BABY GIFT

Last night I finished part of my baby gift for a new little girl, due in August.  The blanket is two layers of flannel and so soft.  I like this method of making them.  I had extra of the focus fabric, since it takes more of the backing fabric, so I made two coordinating burp cloths lined in terry cloth with the extra.  I tied the extra ribbon around the burp cloths, in hopes that her Nana will use it to make her a special hair band, or such (hint).

I'll be making another similar set, and will do a tutorial while I make it, in case you are interested in the directions.  Like most things I make, the idea for how to do it started elsewhere, and blossomed in my head for 'my way', LOL!

Such cute fabric. I'm anxious to see the tutorial, I have a granddaughter and a great niece or nephew both due in September.

I think I know who this is going to. However, I could use the tutorial on how to make them I'm sure. They look soft and so so pretty. Love you and thanks.

Soooo pretty. Great idea about the burb cloths -- never enough of these. Can't wait to read your tute. I'm wondering if it is a version of the "faced" napkins I started... oh, last year sometime. lol.

Ooops, can't type today... that should have been "burp"! *g*

This is a really sweet gift for a baby girl. I love the pink fabrics you've chosen!
