My cousin decided to hire me to make her friend a fleece baby blanket, fine I can do a square blanket shouldn't be too hard right? Well my deadline was in 2 days since it's going to ship to Canada. Well 6hrs later, more seam ripping than sewing, bunched up thread, fabric being too thick to sewn on, swearing.... you get the point, I finally finished the blanket. I hope she approves. She wanted snowflakes as the theme and the blanket in baby blue and K for the girls name(i bought that), the white trim is soooo soft and fluffy. It also converts into a pillow. All designs were done free hand on my machine.


This snowflake took me an hour so it would be measured accurately and precise.

The border

Folded into a pillow
