(That would be a blanket made from knit fabric, not a knitted blanket. As if. That’s what grandmas are for.)
When it came time to make a blanket for baby (because the other 14 I own just weren’t good enough), I strayed from my usual minky since the lows here are in the 80s. As it is, this cotton knit blanket is too warm for all but the most air conditioned situations. But the applique sure makes for fun pictures.
I cut the applique with my silhouette using a free font that I downloaded. It’s called “lobster” and you can get it here. It’s been my font boyfriend for the past few months, so this isn’t the last time you’ll see it.
The fabric on top is a white cotton eyelet knit, purchased I have no idea where or when. Some mom and pop shop in the fabric district, I’m sure. The best fabrics are the hardest to acquire, right? I love the texture and interest that it adds.
I backed it with some of my precious, long-hoarded Michael Miller Scandi Chirp. There’s still a yard here and there if you do a google search. I’ve had it in my stash for, like, ever. It was just waiting for the perfect project. Pretty sure I found it :)
And that’s a wrap!
(and a really lousy pun. let me make it up to you with a blooper shot:)
