More Baby Blankets
I go to JoAnns on Black Friday and buy lots of baby flannel. I use the flannel to make tied baby blankets to give as gifts. I purchased more than fifty yards last November.
I got tired of making one or two blankets at a time, so I decided to go through all of my baby flannel. I used this tutorial I wrote to get the blankets ready to tie. It takes me about an hour per blanket to do that, but I think I saved some time doing it all at once. My craft room seemed messy during the process, but it was an organized mess.
I finished nine baby boy blankets...
And nine baby girl blankets.
Pretty soon they will all be tied and look like this:
They are all stacked up under my cutting table, emptying three cubes in my Expedit. I have five to tie and finish in the next month. (Have I mentioned there are a lot of babies born in Utah?) The rest I will tie little by little. I guess you can consider this a WISP (Work in Slow Progress). Maybe I will get tired of them not being completely finished and get them all done. But for now I am ready for something else. :D
What do you do for baby gifts?
