Sewing It Up

I always try to include some sewn blankets with my knitted donations for The Preemie Project. I spent most of the day cutting and sewing ten small (20"x20") blankets for the December babies.

These blankets are simple to make:

Cut two pieces of fabric one inch larger than you want the finished blanket to be. Sew together, right sides facing, leaving an opening large enough to turn the blanket right side out. Finish with some top stitching. I used a decorative scallop satin stitch.

  7. My local Knitting Guild meeting was last night and they asked about what charities we were going to support in '07. I talked about the Preemie Project. I don't know if they will take it on but eventually I will knit something even if they don't. I hear they have donated to our local children's hospital here but am not really sure how much. So maybe I will start the trend here!

  9. Precious prints on the blankies! Did you use flannel? I love those sorts of receiving blankets, and the seasonal prints you chose are just darling.
