More of my amazing sewing skills

You may have noticed that in this post I mentioned that Kalena's Halloween costume is the SECOND thing I've sewn in years. Since I'm sure you were all losing sleep at night wondering what the FIRST thing was, I'll tell you. About 3 days before I made the Halloween costume I made Kalena a tag blanket. First, here's a picture of my lovely sewing machine. I bought it right before Kalena was born but hadn't managed to get it out and actually use it until recently.

Here is the blanket. I looked at a couple patterns online but in the end I just made it up as I went along. If I ever make another one, I'll do some things differently.

And hopefully if I ever make another one, I won't end up with another corner like this one:

(That's just evidence of my non-existent skills.)

I made her the blanket because she always goes right for the tags on toys. She likes the way they feel ...

...and the way they taste.

Mmmmm. Yummy blanket.


  1. So cute, Kalena! I think you did just fine on the blanket.

  2. Cute, cute, cute!! Both of the girls have taggies that my MIL made them. Jordan LOVES hers. She's very particular about which tag she sucks on though!

  3. Sweet idea! Might just have to bust out my own identical-twin sewing machine and make my own!

    But first, what would you do differently? I'd like to make my project as smooth as possible.

  4. what a cute blanket!! way to go elsha!

  5. I need to get sewing. I have skills much worse than yours! I need to get learning
