It seems that this is baby season again, which means it's time for gifts to help welcome these babies into the world. I was given one of these blankets for my son when he was born. It turned out to be his favourite blanket or "Blannies" as he calls them. I made him a total of about 8 of them and at any given moment he's dragging as many around the house as he can fit into his arms.
When I was making the fire truck one he got so excited cause he thought he was getting a new one. I told him it was for a new baby and that he didn't need anymore. He came back to me about an hour later and said "Mama, when I big I have babies and you make me one then". Smart boy, I sure will but for now lets just worry about potty training you shall we.
This one was for a friend, who after three sweet boys finally got the girl she was wanting. Pretty sweet. Anyways all I do for these is take 1 metre each of coordinating fabric and sew them together. I edge the outside and then sew a square in the middle of the whole thing to keep it together in the wash. Simple and it only takes about 15 minutes to make one of these.
