    My sister wanted a few things made for a baby shower she is going to and instead of going out and buying something, I was so glad she asked me. I still have to embroider the baby's name on the blanket(which isn't shown) and a receiving blanket. So tomorrow I should have it all done. They are turning out cute. There is two receiving blankets, two burp cloths(one with flannel back, one with minkee), and three bibs(two with flannel backing, one with minkee).

    Really cute, love the prints. I like using the non traditional prints for baby items. That baby will be a real fashion setter!

    That's what I think. I had taken pictures of all my baby fabrics for my sister and posted them for her and I almost didn't add this fabric in and decided it had so much pink in it, and that is the one she picked. I love the big floral prints. This one has an old time look to it.

    Very pretty and so nicely made. Much nicer than the mass produced variety, which are so thin and poorly constructed. Thanks for sharing them with us.

    They are really cute. Where did you get the rose fabric? I have been looking for some of that.

    Really cute!!!! Love coordinated stuff for babies. Actually I make 36x36 receiving blankets out of flanne for shower giftsl I take 1 yd of 45" flannel and cut off extra to make square. I then just turn under edge 2 times and sew. You could serge or stitch fancy if you want. This is a great size for babies. the ones you buy are too small for any baby except newborns. There are really pretty flannel prints out there. these blankets hold up just as good as bought ones. My DD have been using them thru 3 kids. Faded yes but not falling apart. I usually give 6 blankets for shower gift and now family is looking foward to getting them. Buy fabric on sale at Joann's and it is cheap gift. Also the left over strip can be used to make quits, burb cloths etc.

    They do make great gifts. There are tons of wonderful flannels now that have great designs on them. I would rather have homemade stuff than the store bought anyways. It lasts longer. The quality of store bought keeps going down. I still have all the homemade gifts from my kids. I will keep them for them and give them to each when they move out. I'm glad I knew a few people that made gifts :).
