Year of handmade presents #2 – baby blanket

January 26, 2013

My lawyer had a baby two months ago… (So too late for a baby swaddle…) so I made him a cute fleecy blanket:

I like how the hand stitching came out on the letter G (it is about 10″ tall):

Just cut off the selvage edges, rounded over the corners on a 1 yard piece of fleece and then hand stitched on the letter (cut from contrasting fleece.). For a toddler I would have used a larger piece of fleece, probably 1 1/2 yards, but this was for a tiny baby.
