I made a baby blanket for my friend Dawn who recently had baby #4. After having 3 beautiful girls in a row Dawn finally got her boy. So I decided to help her celebrate this new little one with a new little blanket.
I wish I would have taken the time to do a tutorial on this blanket, but I didn't. It's very similar to all the other baby blankets I've shown though, and a tutorial for those can be seen here. The only thing different I did on this one was to put a ribbon around the center of the blanket between my two fabrics. I also used different types of fabric this time (minky and flannel). I pulled the colors for this blanket to match these baby booties that my sister Katie's company makes.
Aren't they the cutest little baby booties you've ever seen? I was able to get these straight from the source when we were in Portland a few weeks ago. We were able to visit Puj headquarters and get a behind the scenes tour from Katie and her husband Ben who created Puj. Katie gave these same booties to an audience full of pregnant women at the Ellen DeGeneres show on Mother's Day. Here's Katie in front of Puj headquarters and at the Portland Rose Garden. Behind all that beauty is an incredibly talented woman.
Put together I'd say the blankets and booties made the perfect baby gift, Congrats Dawn!
