Our family was blessed with a new baby nephew this past November. He is the sweetest thing, you just want to kiss his chubby little cheeks. But being a bad (or busy) Auntie, I am just getting around to finishing a gift for little Isaac.
During the Winter I loved to keep a blanket over my babies’ car seats to keep them warm, asleep, and safe from germs. But I never thought of adding straps to a blanket so the handle could remain free. These days I see covers like this at the store and think how clever today’s new mothers are!
This project was such a pleasure to make. I love the fabric, called Grass Menagerie by Michael Miller. The polka dots were a Michael Miller too. It was fast and simple, and turned out exactly how I hoped. For all who are interested, I will be posting a tutorial on Monday.
