I am new to craftster and had a few things already made and given away or sold just wanted to show you too....this is the brilliant Idea I had to use my sons old baby clothes..... the old superman zip up jammies I cut out the superman front and sewed it to another piece of material (creating a large pocketed area that now zips shut) He hides his favorite toy in it. The rest is just different clothes he wore from birth to 2 and I used low loft batting and a flannel back. he still sleep with it every night. he's 6 now.
here it is
this one is the first actual Baby blanket I ever made I was so very sad I had promised it to some one cause I just love how it turned out. (and normally I don't like how my stuff ends up I just nit pick it to death.
this is one I made for my hubby. It is costume made to fit his semi.
(It was stolen) so I made him a new one this year.
here is one I did for my cousin's 4th child.... she likes green and they live in the country
This is my second favorite because I got the material for the front in a thrift shop at 50cents a yard and I cut each "square out then added batting to each one before placing on the front after stitching them down I added the high loft batting
here is another I made from that wonderfull place.
my father makes oak baby cradles and I used to make blankets for him to put in or sell with the cradles. here are a few I made.
this one was an attempt to duplicate the one I liked so well... NOT
winnie the pooh
I have one more that was the first blanket I ever attempted to make..... learned alot of mistakes there!
This is from my daughters old baby clothes (and first swim suit (tee hee hee)). she won't let me take it back apart and fix the backing is really badly placed but she just can't bear to not have it for that long. well here it is anyway.
thanks for viewing and listening to my rambles
