My first baby-related sewing project was... *cue drumroll* reversible flannel receiving blankets!!! YAY! I can't even express to you how simple this project was. It all came together really well and I was very happy with the results. The tutorial was easy to understand, which is my favorite kind.
Here is the first blanket. I'm excited about the animal print, especially the elephant carrying the umbrella. Can you see it?
And here is the decorative stitch that Boyfriend helped me choose for the final stitching on the outside of the blanket. I like it. It looks very professional, in my opinion. Hahaha.
Here are the happy parents holding up their new blankets! I'm super excited to meet the baby and see him all swaddled up in these. Heehee! YAY BABIES!!
I plan to make several more of these. Boyfriend's mom asked if I could make one for her to keep at her house, and I feel like I should make one for Jason's mom as well. Plus, it seems like 800 people I know are expecting babies, so these could be great gifts. The next baby related project I have planned is probably going to be burp cloths. It just makes sense: I have a bunch of cute flannel to use!
