While we pretty much have everything that we need for baby #3, I always like to make something special for each of our children before they are born. (You can see some of the things I made for Peachy here and Cream here, here, and here.) This time I decided on trying a self-binding baby blanket.
I went to the new local fabric store and picked out this great Daydream Girl Flannel Clouds for the backing and the binding. And a great print from Riley Blake Designs called Wheels for the front. (I can't fins a good source for this particular print online.)
I totally got the concept, except I messed up my corners and cut them and then what was I supposed to do? I ended up piecing in a square of a coordinating fabric. And it worked! And as a bonus, I now have a very unique baby blanket. I finished it with a fun stitch on my machine.
