It’s baby shower season! Ok…I know babies are born all the time, but for me, I know a handful of mammas-to-be who are expecting in March or April. For showers lately, I’ve been trying to get a little something from the registry and also create a little something from the heart. My friend Diana and her husband have an adorable little French Bulldog so when I saw this fabric at Joanne’s, I thought it was perfect for a little baby blanket!
It was my first time sewing with Minky fabric (the soft fabric with the little dots.) I had heard it was tricky to work with but this blanket wasn’t very big so I managed just fine. The blanket is folded up in the picture provided but the finished product was roughly 38″ x 38″.
To make the blanket, I followed this great youtube tutorial “The Self Binding Baby Quilt”. It was easy to follow and I love how it turned out.
I think my friend will love it!
Happy sewing. 🙂
