We always make a 2-layer flannel blanket with satin ribbon binding for our babies. When we were in JoAnn's last weekend, we were shopping for flannel for this baby girl we're expecting. Of course, we had multiple opinions flying back and forth, as my daughters all had their own unique preferences. But in the end, we settled on this yellow and pink "Little Cutie" fabric.
Then my daughters noticed that there was a green and blue "Little Buddy" corresponding fabric. Well, since my sister is due the day after I am, with a boy, we couldn't resist buying that fabric for her baby.
I really love brown and pink together, but the girls didn't like brown satin ribbon binding on the pink and yellow blanket. They all felt it was too dark for the yellow, even though there is brown in the flannel, as well. In the end, we agreed on yellow satin binding for our baby blanket, and brown satin binding for my sister's baby blanket.
I spent some time this morning sewing the blankets, and I like how they turned out. I think I like the colors of the boy's blanket better, but I'll enjoy wrapping our little girl in her blanket, as well.
Now to get my sister's blanket in the mail to her. I hope she likes it!
Waiting on our babies,
