But it is patchwork! Smiley  A friend of mine wanted a security blanket for a baby shower gift, so I made her this:

It worked our great - she wanted something yellow, and not too girly, and I had a huge stash of yellow scraps I was saving for something-yet-to-be-determined. I love it when things work out  like that. The ribbons are a mix of satin, velvet and textured, and the fabric is quilting cotton, and its all backed with soft and squishy off-white chenille. It's not a perfect patchwork, thats deliberate - I wanted to just sew the pieces together as they were, and see what happened, and I rather like the slightly wonky look of it - I think it's cute Smiley The purple one was for the same friend, she wanted that one to be girly and purple, and I didn't piece it because I liked the butterfly fabric just as it was.

They are little - about 11 inches square I think. I started with a 12 inch square, but lost some of that to hemming and trimming. But I figure smaller is better when it comes to having a security blanket - I figure they are more portable and kid-sized that way.
