I tried again to make the self-binding receiving blanket from this tutorial. This time I used my new favorite piggy fabric. I did better on this blanket and think I am getting the hang of it. PLUS how darn cute are those piggies??
Another first for me---button holes. I started this bag over a year ago and hated it about half way through. The other day I decided that I didn't wanna waste all of that time and fabric, so I finished it. PLUS I am still working on last years New Years Resolution to finish things that I start. SO I whipped it up AND made button holes--actually they are pretty fun to do!!
This picture is pretty ugly, but then again I am not in love with the bag either. It is done, and that is all I can say about it. I DO like the picture of the garbage can in the back ground--Very Classy Ehhh?? I think I might at least use this bag to carry my primary stuff to church--I need to have some use for it:)
I made another good fabric find. I got this 4 pack of receiving blankets at TJ Maxx for about 5 dollars. The pieces are a little less than a yard each, which means it come to about a dollar 30 a yard or something. That is amazing for flannel right??? Plus it is cute--I love the brown dots!!
I had some leftover backing fabric, so I made these cute little green fancy burp cloths. They are rag edged and I used this blog for the pattern and idea.
I had some more piggy fabric, so today I whipped up another piggy blanket and some matching burp cloths. LOVE THE PIGGIES. I also took pictures of the blanket making process, so stay tuned for my blanket making for dummies tutorial!!
