simple baby blanket
This is for a baby boy that is due very soon. I made my first baby blanket like this when my friend who is due with this baby boy had a set of girl twins about 3 1/2 years ago. I got to use some bright pink flannels and polka dots. I like this blanket because I can make it in a day and l love to see how each of the different fabrics fray. I used a stripy quilters cotton that I have been saving for the perfect boy project (this was it), some flannel, and some soft gray corduroy. I made my strips anywhere from 3" wide (by 32") up to 8" wide. My mom made a great tutorial for this blanket on her blog here that I refer to when I forget the dimensions and need a refresher!
