I've had this minky sitting in my stash drawer for a few months, ever since doing the Luxe Loveys, intending to make a blanket for Tess. Truth be told, I have supplies for a few blankets sitting the drawer...but this made it out because it seemed like the perfect thing to wrap around Tess during our family photo session last weekend. While I used a different blanket in the official photos it was cold enough that I was relieved to have this one to double up in-between. I think Tess was relieved too.
New hat, new blanket...what more could a baby girl want?
This blanket is a generous size: 45x60 inches. I wanted something on which she could do a lot of rolling around. Something she could cuddle with for a nap when she's a bit older. It's pretty great! I wish I had one large enough for myself.
I made it just like the Luxe Loveys, only larger. It took two packages of blanket binding to make it all the way around.
Enjoy it little Tess! (By the way, she seems to be enjoying her sisters' hand-me-downs. Ok, Mom is enjoying them. It's so nice to see things like this little layette worn again.)
