There’s a baby girl due shortly and my family are bursting with excitement. I was looking for a simple idea for a newborn gift and decided on a pram blanket. (Jadie, don’t look!) This is likely to be the first of many baby gifts leaving my machine in the short term.
I knew the mum has decided that she wants to avoid pastel colours, so I went for the vibrant colours in this piece of fabric from the patchwork store. The zebra print back is a velvety, soft, fleecy fabric which I just want to stroke. Continuously. Lime green binding lifts the edges and also compliments the zebra print.
It was all very simple really. I layered the two prints back to back, some random safety pins in the centre and dressmaking pins held them together while I put the binding on. I was wondering if I’d need to put some random stitches through the blanket to hold the layers in place, but it seems to be doing just fine without.
Hope she likes it
