My first Minkie Blanket...
My brother and his wife are due to deliver any day now. This is their second child and so they have decided to wait and have the gender be a surprise. So, as a baby gift, I made this delighful baby 'minkie blanket'. It is super soft on the white side and gentle on the stripe side. I loved the stripe! Thought that it would be stimulating for tiny little eyes to look at. Ok, I must confess, this blanket is anything BUT perfect. The white fabric was extremely stretchy so working with a 36" x 40" size was definitely a challenge. I can see now why when they are made, they are smaller. but I wanted this blanket to be functional! So.. its not perfect but it was made with love and that the most important thing! I can't wait to meet my new niece/nephew!!
