I chose some pretty colours that I knew the babies mummy likes and decided upon a granny stripe blanket.
I love to use pastel colours and this was quite different to my recent granny stripe blanket I made for myself (using a Cath Kidston inspired palate).
Ta-dah! The finished blanket. So pretty!
After a quick 30 degree wash in the machine (with softener), half an hour in the tumble dryer and then hung out to fully dry, the blanket emerges fluffy and snuggly soft!
I added a scalloped edge to the blanket - in pink -
I made some additional gifts using complimentary fabric - bibs, burp cloth and nappy/wipe holder -
Cute as can be!
