Sewing: Flannel Baby Blanket for Craft Hope

I put so much energy into creating things for my home and family, but can't forget that I first learned to crochet by making baby hats for charity. It is such a fulfilling endeavor to create something for someone who truly needs it. I've been inspired by the Craft Hope effort and have loved seeing all the beautiful things created. I imagine it to be extra charitable to provide someone with a little beauty to go along with the utility.

I learned about Project 3 a bit late but still managed to sew a baby blanket and ship it in time. This blanket is made with fabric from my stash--it's leftover from a blanket I made for Audrey, which she loves. I think the prints are very cheery and I love pink and orange together.

I don't know what this type of blanket is called but I received one from my cousin when Audrey was born and I thought it would be just the thing: cute, fast, and fun texture. Making it causes me to want to go hunting for some cute designer flannel to make some more for the Fall.
