One of my best friends from high school is having a baby!! Little Karl Jacob. So to try my hand at domestication I told her I would make a blanket. Little did I know what I was getting into. I had never made this kind of blanket before and didn't really have a pattern, just the idea in my head. So I bought the material (WAY TOO MUCH, but that's what the lady at the store told me I would need) but at least I'll have enough to make another blanket! So Melissa told me I could pick the colors. Knowing it would be a boy I picked blue and this cute animal print and then of course I had to add green. And topped it all off, or rather backed it all with a nice brown. So after making a blanket the size of my entire body and a sore on my hand from all the cutting. My fringe baby blanket was DONE :) and I am proud to say it turned out very well. And even better, when I showed up to the baby shower with the blanket I found out that the colors of the baby room were BLUE AND BROWN! So perfect and with my green touch it will always remind them of me.
