Three Boys and A Girl

Maybe it was something in the water, or maybe it’s simply that time of my life, my friends seems to be having babies all together~~ So when I saw there were a sale on flannel fabrics at JoAnn’s a few weeks ago, I stocked up to make some baby blankets. I found some simple tutorials on Sew Much Ado and decided to try them out. A few afternoons later, these were what they became.

Pattern: Sew Much Ado "Ric Rac Receiving Blanket
& "Rag Edge Receiving Blanket
Size: 40” x 40”
Completion Date: 05-13-2011

First there was a girl. I used the Rag Edge Receiving Blanket tutorial for this one. I love the idea of the frayed edge getting better and better with each wash. It felt like the blanket is “growing” with the baby.

Then there were three boys. I decided to try out the Ric Rac Receiving Blanket tutorial this time.

I just love the fabrics of these blankets!!!! One side flannel the other just regular cotton. The ric rac edge is just so cute on them!!!

All these blankets are really simple to make, each one only took me a couple of hours from start to finish. They are quite addictive, too!!! And the best part is, I know they will be in good use!!!

By the way, the Dove couple are back for round 2, taking over my balcony again!! I think they are the same ones. This time they had two eggs!!!
