a great idea for a first sewing project, or a quick gift for an expecting parent - a baby receiving blanket!

it only takes about an hour to put together, you can make it any size, and you don't need a full studio set-up to complete the project.

in anticipation of the birth of my first nephew, i'm on a mission to make a bunch of useful stuff for my sister. it also gave me an excuse to buy a few yards of that robert kaufman dr. seuss fabric i've been eyeing for the last few months!

i thought i'd start by making a quilt, but when i began looking at all the fabrics and trying to decide my plan of attack, i knew that if i cut up the print with all the little colorful characters scattered about i'd probably end up with alot of severed arms, legs and heads. not exactly the look i'm going for.

so i decided that a great accompaniment to any quilt is a receiving blanket. and that's what i did. i kept it simple with the seuss fabric top and a soft cotton knit on the back. top it off with some bright red stitching and there you have it!


I've added a couple of photos of my most recent blanket here:

, and you can get a FREE TUTORIAL on my website: http://triangleshirt.blogspot.com/2011/01/sewing-101-receiving-blanket-tutorial.html

Good luck with your sewing!
