I figured I'd start with a few animal blankets I made for friends who just recently had babies. I used the Cotton Ginny's Animal Blanket pattern, which comes with patterns for a bear, elephant, and hippo, but I modified the patterns to better fit the recipient. Here are the results.
A pink unicorn for a little girl who's room is filled with magic and fairies.
A floppy eared dog for a little girl who's mom grew up with the greatest basset hound ever.
The blankets are simple to make and only require a sewing machine and a bit of hand embroidery at the end.
I hope everyone's having a great weekend. I'll be back soon with some more of my holiday crafting.
