the sibling blankets


the anna maria horner fabric i had ordered arrived a few days ago, and i couldn't wait for it to dry at last after washing in order to make the baby blanket. a simple, instant gratification baby project. that flannel is one of the softest pieces of fabric i have ever held in my hands! i think i will have to take it to bed with me just to feel it against my face and to give it that special mama scent!



as with the other blanket, i used some ricrac as embellishment, and it turned out to be a very summery colour combination, just right for the season in which this baby will be born! the little man tested it and found out it's perfect for playing peek-a-boo and filling mama's memory card with giggle- and laughter-filled photos!


so here is the pair, both ready to be used for snuggling up. they are so different from each other and yet they work so well together. it's just what you wish for the siblings too, isn't it?

Lovin' it :) Anticipating that sibling relationship and the inevitable comparisons - not in a critical way, but in that amazing we made two people and look how interesting they are way - is such a gorgeous thing.
Ooh, and I have some Anna Maria Horner velveteen on my shopping list, can't wait to get it and make something!

These are such beautiful blankets!! It sort of makes me want to run out and get some of my own fabric, and *gasp* sew something!

It came out so nicely! The blankets look super cuddly.
Anyhow, with or without blankets I'd cuddle up with your kids at any time!! :)

Yeah! How extremely cuddly they are. No wonder Spencer likes that new blanket so much. I'd do so too. Anticipating that tiny face looking out of this summerly blanket makes me extremely happy.
