A couple of months ago, my coworker asked me to make a baby blanket for a friend. I ordered the fabric, but the main chevron print ended up being back ordered until the end of December. Luckily, her friend isn’t due until the end of January. I got the fabric the first week in January and knocked out the blanket, and some extras, the next weekend.
I used the self binding receiving blanket tutorial from Missouri Star. It’s my go-to for any baby blanket. The applique was a fun extra.
I always do some fun stitching to finish the blankets.
Since I had plenty of leftover fabric, I made some burp cloths and a skirt.
The burp cloths are contoured to fit better onto your shoulder. The tutorial is from Cloud9.
The skirt was just a copy of the others I recently made.
It’s so cute I can barely stand it. Tiny chevrons are my favorite!
While I was on the baby stuff making kick, I made another skirt for my coworker’s daughter.
How cute, right? This one is “highwaisted,” which just means that the top ruffle is a little bigger. These are so much fun to make and I already know I’m going to get to make some more because she plans on buying Valentine’s Day fabric!
