All about Flannel

I really liked the swaddling blankets. They are simple, cute, and didn't require too much precision and since I didn't have a pattern (I made them from copying one I got online), they didn't have frustrating directions. I think this one is my favorite. The interior is little monkeys with bananas.

Apparently I'm missing pictures of the last few of those I made. So then my other early obsession: pajamas. I don't have pictures of 2 of the pairs I made, but here's the first pair. I really needed these because the pajamas I bought before my hospital stay this fall not only were way too big, they made me sad.

I also just realized that if you look at my left leg in this picture you can clearly see how badly my ankle rolls out without braces and orthotics. I can totally see now why the podiatrist jumped on the ankle as the issue; he just saw me walk. Or stand.

Early On: The Swaddling Blankets

This is the first swaddling blanket I made, for a co-worker who bowled until the 39th week of her pregnancy. The swaddling blankets typically will be shown with 2 images, one of the main design and one with the design and contrast. If a picture shows both well it will suffice, but some of that has to do with blogger's opinion if I want to delete a picture.

This next one was made for my sister's baby and is the only fleece one I've made. I love the fabrics.
Last for tonight, it's zoo animals.
