It is a nursing blanket. I had never heard of or even imagined these when I had Big T and Little H. I would just hide them under the blanket when I nursed, and sometimes it would drop down, making nursing in front of people kind of awkward and difficult. When my sister-in-law had her baby boy about one year ago, I saw her nursing blanket with a strap that held the blanket up. Ingenious right? So, I decided to make my own, and here it is!
The blue stripes are flannel, and the white is just a thin cotton fabric.
I wanted it to be warm, yet not too thick, as I will take it around with me.
A close up at the blocks. This was fun to make, and I was pleased that it lined up so well.
It measures approximately, 40"x 36" I am guessing. :)
As you can see, the front and back are the exact same, just reversed,
so a striped block is backed with a white one.
I think everyone in my family is glad that I finally got it finished! I only have one more blanket planned. That won't be happening for a few more months though... maybe after my final class for the year in December. It is a car seat blanket. They are THE best things ever! Stay tuned for that. I love them!
I hope that everyone has a fantastic Halloween! We will be putting together costumes for Big T and Little H tonight. Nothing extraordinary, but it should be fun!
