I love making blankets for my kids! Anytime I am at a fabric store I can find things to make at least three different blankets that my kids would love...or that I would love to make for my kids! So I have to really make an effort NOT to buy everything in the store!
I was at Hancock's one day and saw this pink John Deere fabric. So cute! I'm a sucker for paisleys!
I took a picture of it and showed my hubby. He asked why I didn't get it, and said that I should have! Now trust me, this does not ever happen!! So I went back the next day and got it, along with some brown minky, and started on a blanket.
I decided to give the blanket to Livi for Christmas. (Please excuse the terrible photos! I was trying to take pictures while my son and dog just wanted to lay on the blanket!)
I wanted Livi's name to look a little worn on the edges, so I just sewed a straight line to attach the letters and they frayed a little. It's the look I was going for!
I think she likes it!
The minky is super soft!
