Feelin mighty crafty

I have a few friends who are pregnant now and I have totally got the crafty bug. I dusted off the old sewing machine and the kids and I made our way on over to the local craft warehouse. Do they have some cute fabrics out there these days or what! Its so hard for me to focus on only one project at a time sometimes.
Anyways, I found this tutorial over at Aesthetic Nest and it looked fun and super cute so I thought Id give it a good college try.

I wasnt sure how it would turn out for me, so I only snapped one picture of the sewing process.

It ended up turning out way better than I thought! I love when that happens. 
Final product:
My son calls his big blue blanket "silky". So its only fitting that we are calling them "little silkys" in this house.

  I used minky on one side and flannel on the other, just make sure you stitch the opening closed on the minky side like she says in the tutorial, it hides the stitching a lot better than flannel.

 She mentions that it is so hard to stop with just one, and she is so right. They are so cute!  I have already thought up about 10 or so different color combos. Now, if I actually get around to making that many...Ill let you know. :)

Thanks again for the tutorial Anneliese!

Happy sewing!
