A Simple Christmas Baby Blanket

ILHIKER's picture

Hello Guys,
I hope you are all getting your projects finished in time for Christmas. I still have a couple more to go, but got a baby blanket made for my bosses new baby girl. It's just simple washcloth design done on a bigger scale with 55% acrylic and 45% cotton. To even out the stitches, I threw it in the washer and then the dryer and it came out softer than when it went in.

I thought I'd share some photos with you. Some are done to put in a card that is going with the blanket as a keepsake for their daughter, so I put a bit of Christmas decoration in them.

Enjoy.

Mark

Nicely done! Simple, but serviceable, and yet quite elegant. I do like that touch with the ribbons -- very nice!
