I'm big on gender neutrality when giving baby gifts.  So when one of my best friends from college told me he and his wife were expecting, I headed straight to the fabric store.  Originally I was in search of Longhorn fabric...but I live in Illinois, not Texas, so it's not so easy to come by.  I picked out all sorts of stuff...and then I saw all of the Sesame Street fabric and fell in love with it.

I made a snuggle blanket based on Amy Butler's snuggle blanket (but, like the last time I made it, I eliminated the belt), three burp cloths, and my first taggie blanket!  So much fun!









All wrapped up and ready to send:

Really great job!   I love the fabric choice!  I think you definitely picked the right fabrics for that one!  I'm inspired to make some snuggly blankets now.  (although I have no reason to what so ever.)
