My good friend just had an adorable baby boy last week. Her nursery colors are gray and light orange. I have had “make something with chevron fabric” on my list of things I wanted to sew for a while, so thought this was a great chance to splurge on some fun Riley Blake cotton.
I used a twin needle around the edges with two different tones of orange.
I used THIS soft n comfy fabric at Joann for the backing—I love the subtle stripes.
I actually would love to buy some of THIS knit from Girl Charlee (thanks for the tip on where to get some really fun knit, Jess!) and try this blanket out with knit rather than cotton, so it doesn’t wrinkle as easily. But I also don’t know if that would work with the knit being less sturdy than cotton. I’ll give it a trial run perhaps, maybe for this baby.
I have two more blankets needing to be finished soon. The darn Christmas quilt and I’ve started crocheting a blanket for our baby due June. So those will be on the blog hopefully soon (especially the quilt! eesh, the quilt top is done but the task of quilting it is daunting!).
Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm!
