This week has been incredibly, madly busy trying to get all my Christmas orders out. At this stage I've finished all of the bunting orders (although I still have some for gifts from myself to finish) and I'm nearly done with the snuggle blankets which have been really popular. I thought I'd post some pictures of 3 of the ones completed so far as they turned out so pretty!
This cheerful flowery print is a Michael Miller fabric called Daisy Dance that I found buried at the bottom of a shelf in my tiny local craft shop! I fell in love with it immediately, it's so pretty and fun! The green minky backing and wine binding balance the pinks perfectly.
2 of these blankets were orders for "non-pink" girl's blankets and it was lovely to put together options that were pretty without overloading on the pink.
This one is a Robert Kaufman fabric by Amy Schimler called On A Whim and the little owls are very quirky and whimsical. This is one of my favourite fabrics and I use blocks of it a lot in my patchwork blankets, but I think it works well as a main fabric too.
The patchwork blanket in the top
picture is for my friend's brand new niece and I hope that it keeps her cosy in this freezing weather. I used a range of fabrics in bright, bold colours and I love the red minky backing, its so vibrant and cheerful, I'll definitely be using again.
I'll post pictures of some more finished blankets at the weekend when I'm done :-) In the meantime I'll be found at my kitchen table, sewing, at all sorts of weird hours to get over the pre-Christmas rush.
