I hope that this is an ok place for me to post these.  If not, I'm very sorry and please feel free to move them. 

For Christmas this year I did some crafting for the people I thought would truly appreciate it.  Here are a couple of blankets that I did for my niece and little brother.  They are both fleece tie blankets.

The applique is all done with my basic machine (a really basic machine that the lady at the craft store cursed!) that has 2 stitch functions, straight and zigzag.  To apply them I pinned them in place, shortened my stitch length to 1 and took my time around to apply them to the blankets.

This is the one for my niece. 









This is the one for my little brother. He's only 6 months old so his is more for a floor play mat I suppose.







Thanks for much for looking.  Any comments and criticism are appreciated.
