I made a couple of cute items this weekend. Two tag blankets and a pacifier clip. They are presents for a baby shower.
It took a lot of effort to get off the couch, but deadlines motivate and this time I was grateful for them. The cuteness helped my lift my mood as well. You can't help but smile when working with bunnies and bears driving cars.
This was my first time making both of these items. The pacifier clip tutorial is here and I just winged it for the blankets. I found a super soft minky fabric for the back of the blankets and the car fabric is from Japan. It's about 10 inches square and has different size and textured ribbons.
Most importantly, I made two blankets because I know how devastating it is when you blanket wears through or you lose it. Always good to have a spare.
The pacifier clip was super fast to make, particularly because of my new serger. (Wee!) This was my first project on it. I practiced on some scraps before making this and then switched over to the rolled hem setting for the pacifier clip. I can't believe how easy it was to switch settings and to use it general. No issues thus far.
Look at that rolled hem! Wow. And I've already made my first knit shirt as well. Pictures soon.
