My friend and neighbor Melody is expecting her first baby. Well she and her husband! They are so excited, and today her family gave her a baby shower. I wanted to make her a cute baby blanket, and I did. Only it is tiny. So being the clever girl I am acted like I inteded to make a tiny baby blanket. I said it's for over her car seat. Everyone thought sounded good, either that or they were too kind to tell the truth! So it is made out of that "minky" fabric on one side and cotton on the other. The flower is made out of cotton, and I pinked the edges so that it will fray all cute in the wash. I guess its ok, but I HATE working with "minky". I am going to stick to cotton and flannel from now on. Except for that my other neighbor is expecting and she requested a blanket just like this one only for a boy. Her exact words were "like this only blue with a monkey or something"; hhmmm a monkey!!
