Baby Receiving/ Bath Blanket

Yesterday, I went fabric shopping at Joann Fabric and Craft Store. I had so much fun just wandering the store searching for fabric, buttons and patterns. I bought several Simplicity baby boy clothes patterns, five different fabrics, plus matching buttons! Needless to say, I will be a busy sewing bee this week! I have decided to try and get as much sewing for little Robert done now, before he makes his arrival. Last night the first thing I made as soon as I got home from Joann's was a baby receiving/bath blanket for our little sweetpea. I think it turned out just adorable! Most of all it was such a great experience to feel the little guy tumbling around while I was sewing.

I used a cute little monkey cartoon print fabric for one side of the blanket, and a robins egg blue terry cloth fabric for the opposite side. I then decided to use a blanket stich on a white satin blanket binding all around the outside edges of the blanet.
