UPDATE - finally finished it and secured the batting in the center.  in case you can't read it, it says the baby's name (Summer Rayne) in the center, with the date of birth.  I did it with a free hand quilting foot and it took FOREVER.  I love how it turned out though, and can't wait to give it to them...
(see new pictures)

I originally saw this pattern for the blanket buddy:

but thought, "hey, I could do that on my own!".  Plus, I had my own idea for the stuffed animal head at the top.  My aunt is expecting (twin girls!) for Christmas, so being an avid Hello Kitty lover, I thought I would make her a personalized gift the girls would love.  (Or I would, at least. Wink)
I could do a tutorial if anyone wants, but it was fairly simple, only took a day or two.  The most time consuming part was embroidering the face.  I imagine anyone could figure it out by looking at it. 

Anyway, enough blabbing - here are the pictures:

I appreciate any suggestions, critiques or comments.
Thanks for looking!

Oh my goodness!  That is great, thank you so much for posting the tute with it.  Now I must see what i have in my stash.  It will not be as lovely with all names, however.  Many thanks!  Hope I can make it in time for stocking stuffers!
