Pick a Pin Tuesday : Baby tab blanket

The first image has very thorough tutorial, and  the second one I pinned for the cute pic! This is how I wanted Roo’s tab blanky to look like.

I found the cutest flannel fabric at Naald-in-`n-Hooimied (our local haberdashery). The smiley flowers were just so goofy! I had some mulberry stretchy fabric left over from making my maternity tummy tubes – I still have to post about that (although it was almost a total waste of fabric buy cause I only made 1 tummy tube. The fabric kept on slipping under my sewing machine foot). And I’ve always collected pretty ribbons; I can’t help buying 3m-4m at a time.

I didn’t take any pics while making it – in hindsight I should have. Because I had pinned the ribbons wrong, and as I was about to turn the stitched fabric inside out… I realised the tabs won’t show on the outside. So I had to undo all my sewing, repin the ribbons and sew it all again. [I need to find out if my machine can take double needles cause I love top stitching! But parallel lines are my Achilles heel]

Of course she doesn’t love the blanky  NEARLY as much as I do… or her sister does. I had to make 3 more – two as baby shower gifts and one for big sister Lili.
