Cherry Baby Blanket

2011-06-27 011

A friend of mine is about half way through her pregnancy and asked me to custom make a blanket for her baby’s bed. She and her husband are cherry farmers, so baby’s room is cherry themed. Custom work always makes me nervous! I love the way it turned out though and think it’s super cute!

The center of the fronts is a soft flannel with a cherry applique. The cherries themselves are made from a soft cotton weave, the stems from grosgrain ribbon, and the leaves from flannel. I’m excited that as she washes it, the edges of the cherries and leaves will fray a bit.

The rest of the blanket is a very soft minky! Fabric tip for those of you who live in the Salem area: Craft Warehouse and Joann’s minky fabrics cost the same, but the material at Craft Warehouse is so much more plush and soft!

Thanks for stopping by!
