I finally got around to doing a project I have been wanting to do for some time now. My mom told me about these receiving blankets that have a framed look. The back fabric wraps around to make a border for the front side. I think they are dang cute, and they weren’t too hard to make.
The other IT guy that Robb works with missed work yesterday for the birth of his daughter. I thought I had better get a gift ready, since I have been known to drop the ball in the past. I had the fabric in my closet, which was fortunate, so I got right to work. I decided to practice with the boy blanket first, since I was sure I would be giving the girl blanket away.
You have to sew each side separately, matching the centers and sewing from the center out. The corners took me a couple tries to figure out, since I lost the pattern my mom gave me, and I’m obviously not smart enough to figure it out on my own. Once I got going, though, it went pretty quickly. And I love the way they turned out!
