The design of these little blankies are pretty simple, and I recently taught myself to sew, so I thought, Hey! I can make those! And I bet I can make them super cute and pink and girlie. Light Bulb.
So I grabbed some ribbon and fabric and got to work. Here is what I came up with.
And she loves it! It may not be as perfect as the store bought kind and the stitches might be a little crooked but her momma made it just for her <3
Here's how I did it:
You wil need:
A towel or terry cloth
Ribbon (various colors, textures, sizes)
Mylar gift basket wrap (Crinkle paper)
Sewing machine and thread
**Create, Craft, Conserve Tip: If your a DIY junkie like me, use whatever supplies you have already around. I didn't have to purchase anything for this project. Your kid is literally going to cover it in spit up and slobber anyways.
1) Pick your fabric and ribbon. Grab some crinkly paper out of your gift wrap stash.
