Crafts of the week
I've been spending some time every week crafting with friends and by myself. This week, I finally got around to turning some cute alphabet fabric I found at Pacific Fabrics into a simple blanket. I was inspired by a Purl Bee project, but made some modifications. Instead of using fleece, I used some flannel I had left over from another project. I also sewed the rickrack on in the same way I'd been attaching ribbons to taggie blankets since I didn't have excess fabric to work with. I'm happy with how it turned out even though the rick rack wasn't quite centered.
this tutorial to help me with it. I got a bit confused with the first pillow, but since I made four in a row, it was a lot easier by the end.
