This week's theme in Crafting with the Stars/on the Sidelines was Fabric. Yay!! I was planning this project even before I knew the theme, so it worked out perfectly for me :) It is my first blanket, and was an awesome/easy one to start with. Here's where I found the tutorial. I had to alter it a bit, because I only had 5 fabrics that I wanted to use, not 7 and mine is a tad (one or two panels) shorter than theirs. Its the perfect size though, for on the floor, and when Elena is big enough for the toddler bed. I tried it out on her sisters bed, and it is exactly the right size.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. My other two kids are now a little jealous that they didn't get one, so I am now on the prowl for some good fabrics for theirs...maybe it'll be Christmas presents. :)
And I tried mitered corners, they need alot a little work, but for the first time doing them, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
And that is my submission, please go vote here at Northeast of Eden. Good luck to me, because there has been some insanely awesome projects coming out of people.
