I mentioned yesterday that I'd already finished my first baby boy project. Here it is, a simple mitered corner receiving blanket.
I've been trying to sew my way through my fabric stash since I found out that we were having a baby, but since Monday I've bought fabric everyday. I've got a long list of sewing projects to prepare for baby
|Funny....I really thought that I pressed this prior to taking photos.|
My husband's aunt sewed up a similar receiving blanket for my Sister In Law's baby shower, and I decided that it was going on my "To Sew List".
I found a great tutorial for it here, on Everyday Mom. All that it requires is one yard of the inner fabric, and one and a quarter yard of the back/border print. The print is a Michael Miller design, and the green polka dot border (which seemed to match much better in the fabric store), is from Riley Blake. It took less than an hour to put together. Wahoo!
