A Blanket for Baby Freddie


Baby Freddie has graced the world with her brand new presence, so we have made a gift. Actually, Daisy directed operations by first selecting a green gingham flannel blanket from her own personal stash, then choosing an embroidery transfer for the corner and picking out colorful floss.

When Daisy's back was turned I backed the blanket with a square of polka dot flannel, then bound it with some vintage pink satin blanket binding.

If Baby Freddie reads this, she won't be surprised, but I hope she will like the blankie anyway when it comes in the mail.

Oh, very cute...gorgeous, unique. Daisy has excellent taste and baby Freddie will have a one of a kind blanket ~ I'd hang on to that once it had finished being useful and pass it on to Freddie when she has children.

We are awaiting the birth of a little girl named Lucy Elizabeth, and I have been wanting to do something special for her. What a lovely gift this is! I hope Freddie won't mind if I use it for my inspiration.
