I decided to make tag blankets for each of the girls. They're really cute, fun to make, and I wanted to personalize them for each baby.
I made the first two for my cousin Molly's two baby girls -- Reese and Chloe. Everything is cuter in two's, I think!
I embroidered their names on the minky side, and used cute fabric for the back.
A close up of the embroidery.
My cousin Kate had Cara a few weeks before Molly's twins were born. How fun to have three girl cousins so close together in age??
This is the back of Cara's. I LOVE this fabric. I bought it as a fat quarter a long time ago, and decided this was a good reason to use it!
I wanted the twin's blankets to coordinate without being identical. Mission accomplished!
One of the best parts about these gifts is that they're lightweight, so they're easy to mail. I just rolled them, tied them with a silk ribbon, and sent them on their way!
I'm putting together a tutorial for next week, so stay tuned!
