new stuff!

My mom and I took a class last saturday- how to make the self binding baby blanket. It's a blanket that has had us both stumped, so we took a class. There is a trick to it- a trick that cannot be explained in a pattern. But once you know it, they are pretty quick to make. We had a wonderful teacher, she was so patient and nice. That always helps too.

This is the one I made in class. Love that Michael Miller is doing flannel now!

When I got home, I made some more out of scraps that I had laying around. (stuffed in bins) These I just made with regular fabric and fluffy soft minky.

Minky is a bitch to work with when paired with non-minky. But I figured out a trick for that too!

Here are some tiny cuddlers...

Hello perfectly mitered corners.

So cute!

Ohh... and I got some new rag-a-muffin tags, do you like them?


  1. I wish I could sew. Well, I guess I can sew curtains, but that's about it.

    These blankets are sweet!

    (I'm just following Cjane around. Like a puppy.)

  2. Ahhh I love these! I love mine very bestest! Thank you!!!
