My aunt asked me if I would make a baby blanket for a friend of hers. I had been itching to make this Purl Bee blanket for awhile, so we decided on this pattern. The family is in Arizona, and we agreed flannel might be a better choice than fleece.
I followed the pattern exactly except that I basted the ric rac on before sewing everything together. It was my first time using ric rac, and I was a little nervous about getting everything to line up. The basting worked perfectly and I’m really happy with how it turned out.
The only thing left to do is give it a good ironing, but I’ll do that just before shipping. Right now it’s staying folded in a plastic bag. The flannel is like a magnet to all of the colored, loose thread bits I’ve got floating around!
Did you make something yourself? Post it here!
