I hope everyone has had a lovely week. I have had a lovely Sunday sewing again. One of the wee babes I look after came over last week with a wee minky tag blanket. I thought it looked so easy to make so decided to give it a go. It was a bit of a change from doing patchwork but I loved working on something easy and a project I didn't have to think too much about.
The local baby store was selling minky type blankets on special, so I bought up on a few and unpicked the binding to make up my own ones. It was a much cheaper way of buying the fabric as I got two fabric designs out of one purchased blanket.
They were heaps of fun to make and took no time at all. Some of them I used the blanket fabric front and back and others I used contrasting fabrics.
My own girls are 12 and 16 and were fighting over the blankets before I unpicked the binding off them. I really think they are far too old to be taking a baby minky to bed with them.
This is one of my 3 cats, Ginger. He really loves company and comes and joins me while I am sewing. It's a real pain when he decides to sit on my sewing table on top of the fabrics I need. I suppose I can't blame him though as the fabric is really soft.
