Boutique Blanket

ooh Pinterest, how I love you! I found this gorgeous/shockingly soft blanket on Pinterest, and needed it ASAP. The tutorial is here and the author, Christina, was incredibly helpful with questions. I used the same fabrics (a minky and a cotton twill) as she did, so our blankets are essentially identical. Identically AMAZING! so soft and gorgeous. and BIG! It's about 5 feet by 6 feet, so much bigger/cozier than the faux chenille blanket. The minky was a bit hard to work with, so if you make this, use Christina's advice and pin, pin, pin!

Another recent project is the Snappy Toddler Dress from Prudent Baby (for Shayna, of course), who are two of my very favorite women ever. Their website is full of sewing and craft projects, as well as delicious recipes, my two favorite being the One-Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie and a Coffee Cake in a Cup. Best of all, you don't even need to have a baby to enjoy their site! so check them out at
Coming soon: matching mother-daughter outfits for Jessica and Shayna! too cute. bye!
