I love making gifts for my friends. I would rather create something than buy most of the time.
One of my favorite gifts to make for babies and toddlers is blankets. I back them with minky so they are super-duper soft. I usually sew the childs name on them so they are personalized and then tie them. I have made several of these blankets and have loved giving them out.
I was in Hobby Lobby last week and saw this princess fabric on sale and couldn't pass it up. It came in panels (instead of yards) so I bought 2 panels and made blanket for Chloe Jo and cousin Brianna.
Chloe Jo picked out dark pink minky with white polka dots and I chose purple minky with white polka dots for Brianna.
Even though I didn't put their names on them (there wasn't a good place) they still turned out cute!
The girls loved them!
And that is all that matters.
