Swaddle BlanketsPosted: May 12, 2011
Did i mention baby #3 is on its way? Well if i haven’t baby #3 is to arrive sometime around the 6th of October! We don’t know what we are having but i have been collecting fabric for this baby all of which i planned on turning into blankets, so i figured, what the heck let’s stitch them up….
The two blankets on the left are both done using Amy Butler’s Swaddle blanket pattern for her <a href="Amy Butler’s Little Stitches for Little Ones “>little stitches book. I love this pattern, but i think my most favorite is the elephant one, i didn’t do the border on the inside piece like the pattern calls for but i love it. Its still reversable i can either navy or elephants. Plus the elephant material is like a pair of sweat pants, so so cozy!!!!
The blanket on the right comes from <a href="Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing for Baby: 24 Easy Projects for Newborns to Toddlers “>Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple sewing for Baby. I love this swaddle blanket! Again its the sweat material. But the pattern itself is so easy, and it has velcro on the arms around baby to keep them nice and snug.
Like I said i don’t know what we are having yet but the one in the middle really makes me want to have a boy! i love the Mr. Fabric!!! But if its a girl that’s ok the animals will keep her cozy and there is lots of girl fabric up in the closet with her name on it! and the Mr. will just wait until Baby #4!
