It’s Day 6 of Sew Mama Sew’s Handmade Holidays…and today’s mission is Blankets for Babies! Perfect timing as I need to sew up two pink baby blankets…one for a new arrival and one for an upcoming shower. I’ll be using Craft Apple’s Chenille Backed Baby Blanket Tutorial for both blankets.
The first one I’m making with have the baby girl’s name embroidered on it (Marisa). I’ve already made the embroidery design file…just need to stitch it out on the fabric (definitely not going to attempt to embroidery on the chenille)…perhaps later if I finish Mr. Diva’s™ 50th Birthday Party Invitations…this lovely husband of mine decides he wants to have a big bash at a catering hall with 150 of his closest friends…lovely, just lovely. I’ve booked it for December 1st even though his birthday is December 17th…figured I’d get it out of the way before all the other holiday celebrations…KWIM?
Anyway, for the second baby girl blanket, I’ll make another embroidered blanket with the her name as her mom has already picked out her name (Brielle). Let’s cross our fingers the baby doesn’t turn out to be a boy unexpectedly…LOL. We’re having a surprise online baby shower for Baby Brielle on November 15th, I think. Guess I had better get in gear.
