...and I took advantage of that non-bitterness by finishing up a baby shower gift for Wally's cousin. They're due pretty soon here, and in my bitterness I ditched out on the shower. Yes, we did contribute money toward a group gift, but still. So here it is.
The tag blanket is about 11" square - elephant tutorial from Homemade By Jill. The tag blanket was just winged. I had made all three of these things for Allie when she was a baby. She still uses the blankie... it's her favorite. The blanket is just one yard of each of two flannel prints (cheepo at Joann's - don't buy it unless it's at least 40% off since they have it on sale at least twice a month). Just sew those two yards together right sides facing, turn inside out, and top-stitch! Easy, simple, and totally usable! We used these to swaddle Allie for the longest time since the stretchy blankets don't work as well, and tend to be pretty small.
|The tag has washing instructions.|
Now to get ahold of that address so I can get this in the mail before that baby is born!!
