I really like doing custom orders. It's fun for me to give people a chance to pick out and create something that they feel really comes from them, not the department store. And this one was extra special for me because it was to be a gift for my niece Katie.
She and her husband Victor are having their first baby! Yes it's a boy.
My sister-in-law asked me to make a gift for them and I thought of this Dick and Jane fabric right off. It reminds me of her and seems like something from her own childhood that she would want to pass on to our new baby nephew.
The blanket is soft flannel with vintage chenille and the tie fabric is perfect! Doesn't that plaid just rock it as a tie :D I am also working on another special order that I will be done with tomorrow. I'll show you that one too if you like!
And with this sewing project done and posted it means that I have completed my Sew 5 Challenge! Thanks Creative Maven for keeping me busy and on task!
