Baby blankets are always popular gifts for baby showers, gifts when the baby comes home from the hospital, and are always nice to have extra ones, so make plenty of them for the new baby.
Liz Johnson is the editor of the Sew4Home site, and they have instructions on making three different boutique style baby blankets. These are really cute – here’s a picture, and I’d recommend you check out the instructions and get some made up for the next baby shower.
The finishes / edgings on the blankets are really nice.
While you’re working on things for the new baby and baby’s nursery, check out the NurseryRoomProjects website and get tons of ideas for additional gifts and decorating.
