My son is hilarious. You've seen the pics, you know. One of his favorite things to do is pull my blanket off my bed and then roll around and throw himself into it. haha. It's really a very cute thing.
My blanket is SUPER soft. It's like a Little Giraff blanket, only king size and even softer. I love it and so does he.
Eme has one Little Giraffe blanket that he LOVES, but I thought he could use another one. (You know, for when the other one's in the wash.) But Little Giraffe blankets are EXPENSIVE. My mom gave him one as a happy BIRTH day present. He's used and loved it pretty much every day since. But since buying him another one is out of the question, I decided to make him one with some of the fabric from my stash. (That I bought from the remnant bin a while ago. I <3 the remnant bin. :) )
It's soft and it's snuggley and it's perfect for my little blankey loving monkey. Wanna see?
Here ya go!
MONKEYS for my Monkey. :)
I think this little (totally accidental) corner is my favorite part. Peek-a-BOO!!!
This was my second time doing a binding and it went a little smoother and looks at least somewhat better. I have a ways to go before I'll declare myself anywhere near being truly good at it though. I went the easy(er) (though not as 'creative') route this time and bought pre-made satin blanket binding. It was definitely faster. haha. Making your own binding takes FOREVER. Especially when you don't have a binding maker.
All in all this was a fun (relatively fast) little project that I'm fairly certain my son will love.
