Back to the blanket I made. I decided that I didn't just want to make the taggie blanket, I wanted to make it more personal. For me that meant embroidering the childs name onto the blanket. I did have prior experience embroidering so I knew that it could be done. I purchased the fabric
and the embroidery floss color to compliment both fabrics.
|Super cute sleepy bears and fun zoo fabrics|
|I used three different types of ribbon and I made sure that they evenly were spaced the whole way around (yes I am a sucker for punishment of my own doing!)|
Now the only bad part was that I was so excited about making my gift that I ended up having it finished almost two months before the shower! Don't worry I managed to keep it a secret from the Momma to be.
I created a second taggie blanket for a friend of mine for her first baby a few months after making this one. I was smarter that time and took more "during" pictures. I will treat you with those another day.
