This flannel blanket is for a new baby who came a bit early. I think I've written about this before, but I enjoy making things for our newest humans. It's my way of influencing their textile worlds. I have beloved handmade blankets, ornaments, wall art etc. made by my Aunts which I treasured as a little kid. I'd run my fingers over their stitches and examine their fabrics. I'm sure these gifts influenced my love of sewing and gifting.
