We went to a couples baby shower this past weekend. Is there anything more exciting than a new baby? No. Really, nothing compares. It's nice that people keep having them! I love it when they are having girls because I feel I have so much to share in that department--experience and things! But on the other hand, a boy is such a wonder to me with my house of girls. It has been fun to to think and look for, "boy!"
I spotted this blue zebra minky, or maybe it's velboa--a bit silkier and lighter than minky, by David Textiles, a month or so ago and thought it would be so fun for my future nephew. There are a few things I'd like to make for him and a minky blanket is one of them--every baby needs one! Maybe I need one! I used my own tutorial for the Lovey Boy and Satin Luxe Blanket and combined this blue zebra with a white minky dot for the blanket and a chocolate brown minky dot for two Lovey Boys.
I had two identical Loveys for Tess--so nice in case one goes missing or you'd like to keep one in the car seat and one in the crib. So I made two for this little boy. I hope he like them.
I bound it all with "Neon Blue" (though it's not in my opinion) Wright's Satin Blanket Binding. It is an unbelievable match with the zebra! And I paired the blanket and loveys with one of my favorite things for babies--a Kissy Kissy Premier footed layette. I love babies in white and these are so so soft.
I can't wait to meet this little guy!
