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.
