I love making gifts. I love being able to think of the person I'm making a gift for and hoping they'll enjoy using it and much as I enjoyed making it for them. I especially love making things for my friends and family who really enjoy having something I made them. I love that it can be so personal and useful at the same time.
Our friends are having their 5th child, yes 5th! Whew, I give them credit! They have such a beautiful family though and they're so thoughtful and kind and have really stuck by us through good and bad times. I wish we could visit them more often!
So I churned out 5 fleece blankets for each of the kiddos. Who doesn't love a good fleece blanket?! I love that they're so durable. I simply rounded the corners and serged the edges to finish them. We've had a similar handmade fleece blanket for about 7 years now, my kids still it drag around the house and love it.
I also had to make mommy a divided diaper basket. I looked in my stash the other day and pulled out these three fabrics, a match made in heaven if I do say so myself. Melody Miller + Lizzy House + Jay McCarroll = true love always. :) I couldn't resist the deep purples.
I know they'll really enjoy this little package!
