Practice Makes Perfect. Almost.

I am making my ever so cute nephew, Asher, a blankie. I just love the bright contrasting colors. I love the little rockets and robots so much!

No matter how many things I sew, I always make a mistake. It's gets frustrating, but then I think more about it.  This is a homemade blanket, one that comes from my heart. I picked out the fabric with him in mind. Stitched it together picturing him wrapped in it watching Saturday cartoons. I hope that when he wraps it around his tiny self that it will remind him of his auntie. He's not looking for mistakes or imperfect lines or uneven stitches. He, I hope, will know it was made with a heart full of love for him. It was made just for him. A one of a kind blankie for a one of a kind boy.

  2. Well, that is just the cutest thing ever...and he will definitely not see any "oops" in the blankie. He will only think how special he is to have a one-of-a-kind made with love.

  3. girl... you are so talented ♥ and i'm sure the best auntie EVER!!

  4. I'd seen the blanket over on Flickr and I love it! It looks so cute and adorable and perfect for the little fellow there :)

  5. He will treasure it - I'm sure! I finished my first quilt recently - it was for my toddler. Now that it is laying on his bed I don't see the mistakes and crooked lines but instead see a something that keeps the one I love cozy. :)

  6. Love the pattern! There is nothing better but a homemade present. I'm sure he or his parents will treasure it for years. I just picked up some fabric for a pillow and blanket case for my little one. Or actually, he picked it:)
