I spent some time yesterday organizing the closet where I keep my fabric. After straightening it out a bit, I thought I should probably try to make a dent in the stash.
Lacking in unique, creative ideas, I decided to make another baby blanket, but I didn't want to make a rag quilt this time. I took two pieces of flannel, and cut one slightly larger than the other.
Then I just folded the edges of the larger piece over twice to form a binding, and stitched around the edges.
I played around a bit with my sewing machine's stitches, and used the quilting foot to stitch around the circles and ovals.
I definitely need more practice, but I had fun, used up part of my fabric stash, and have a gift to save for the next baby shower.
Thanks for sewing machines.
