i love this blanket. i just finished it the other day. it was waiting to be top stitched since a few days before anika's birth. that was about 8 weeks ago. my gosh. i also love it when my little one can use things i made. and loves what i make her. yes, she loves it.
this is one of my very favorite japanese fabrics. it is a double gauze designed by junko onishi. i have been hoarding it. silly me. it was time to use it. i also made a blanket for my niece in a different colourway. now anika and evangeline can be bosom blanket buddies.
they are super simple to make. and are a great way to use large chunks of your favorite fabrics.i just cut a big square of the top fabric. and the lovely flannel for the back. i then used a small plate to make rounded corners. sewed the two fabrics together. flipped them right side out. and top stitched. easy peasy. i think this will be my new baby gift go to.
and anika is sleeping on my lap right now. swaddled in her blanket. and i am loving life.
