I want to make Chloe a receiving blanket and matching burp rag. The main reason being that I want to make her something but it's been so long since I used my sewing machine that I need something simple to refresh my skills.
I went to Hobby Lobby and bought the cutest frog flannel with a complimentary hot pink for the back side. I can't wait to see the finished product. As rookie as it may look.
Apparently, not using your sewing machine for 5+ years (my how time got away from me) will cause you to forget how to load a spool.
Frustrated. Will figure this out! Now where is my instruction manual?
**********a few hours later**********
Still frustrated and in a hurry, I managed to complete the receiving blanket. I'll work on the burp rag later. I'm not too impressed with the size of the blanket. I found the pattern online. I'll make a larger blanket later. For now, I'm pleased with my warm up.
Here is the fabric. Is it not the sweetest? This blanket is so so so soft!! Maybe I should make one for me!
