Not to sound like a total dork but I'm so impressed with myself. I don't sew, I have an ancient sewing machine that was my mom's but I've never used it... well I found a fabric that I LOVED (chocolate brown with pink/orange/yellow birds) and I wanted a blanket out of it, I had bought one on etsy a few months ago and while it's cute it was $40 and its not even lined. So I ordered the fabric, and pink minky, and bought cotton batting for the inside and read online how to do it and gave it a shot.

I DID IT!!!!



Next I'm going to try making a taggie blanket and maybe some burp cloths with the extra fabric, I might have to put a new sewing machine on my wish list for my b'day!

Good luck! It's so much fun to make it yourself! Plus, in the end, there's something so rewarding (for me, at least) about laying your little one down in bedding you've made!

Good job. I love it. I'll be making something similar to that also but with silk instead of the the bird fabric. I hope mine is as good as yours.

Thank you so much ladies! If I can do this anyone can! I just made a taggie blanket but it's not done as well as the big blanket, I slacked and didn't pin things but we'll just say it adds to the homemade charm LOL probably going to try another soon, I think the ribbon loops are a bit to long, don't want her getting her arm stuck in it.

Here is the taggie: as you can see I'm staying true to the pink/brown and bird theme LOL


The fabric is called tossed birds from the Mod Collection by Timeless Treasures (got it on etsy)

Great job! It's super cute.

I made a taggie blanket too and some burp cloths. But I have lost steam and just don't want to do anything anymore.

OK I have some comments/questions.

First...those look awesome!!!

Second...do you have a link to the site you used to make your amazing blanket?

What is a taggie blanket for?? I've never heard of one.

And for those that mentioned making burp cloths how do you make them?? That's sooo cool!

I have a sewing machine and I'm not half bad with it and need a project!
