I love to make blankets for new babies. Some I make more elaborate, some super simple. This one was one of those super simple ones. I loved this flannel fabric I saw and so I simply sewed it together with a light cotton (since you can't make the blanket too warm for Vegas!)..but knew it needed something else.
So I cut out a few random felt flowers and sewed them on one corner..
I love this color combo..so girl, but in a funky fall kind of way!
a cute and easy way to dress up a blanket!
NOTE: I have been using felt for a few years now to do appliques on blankets, onesies, shirts, etc. and love working with it. It's nice and stiff, so it is easy to sew..and cleans up well too, but I normally wash it in the washer and hang dry!
