I finished this a while ago, as in, months ago (early may, I believe). My friend loved it, and it matched the bedding she picked out for the baby's room. She ended up having a girl, so everything else I have made for her has been pinkish. I didn't make the blanket as big as the instructions said, becuase I realized it said to make the thing 5 feet tall! This blanket was really tedious, but I finally finished!
And here's a closeup on the faces. I made eyes out of felt. I am sure there is an easier way, but it turned out cute anyway. The eyes aren't all uniform, but I think that makes it look homemade. I did fix the one eye on the light bear before I gave it away though, becuase it was too weird looking.
