When my sister got her puppy about a year ago, I made him a baby blanket as a welcome home present.
I made a tied blanket using fleece, and used a recycled bed sheet for the embellishments.
here's the front (the back is just plain white)
his name is berkley
and here's berkley laying on it! when he first came home he was about the size of one of the patchwork squares!
just recently, my sister's friend and her husband just got a mastiff puppy, and my sister asked me to make him a baby blanket just like berkley's.
the owners really like the buffalo bills, so i used red, blue and white soft felt (since i couldn't find the right colors of fleece), and a recycled towel for the helmet and logo. i used regular cotton for the letters.
the dog's name is dave
the back is solid blue. there's a layer of white in the middle so all the colors would show in the fringes, plus it made the blanket a bit more cushy

thanks for looking!
