A blanket of sorts

A couple of weeks ago, (before I packed up Blanche, my beloved sewing machine,) I whipped up this blanket for my dear friend, Kaitlin. She had told me once that if she could have anything in our house, it would be hands down the blanket from this post. She's an awesome lady and I really wanted - needed to make her something. We are supposedly moving next month so I needed to bust out a little bit of my stash. I haven't bought fabric in months either and all of my fabric ended up fitting in two suitcases!

The blanket was made by a lot of scraps left over from the girls clothes I've made over the last few months, some bought new, others given to me or thrifted. There are even some of the same fabric in both blankets! I used a thrifted bedsheet for the back of the blanket. I love doing that. If you keep your eyes peeled you can find some lovely floral printed sheets for a dollar or less. And Kaitlin loved it! She cried, making me cry :)

Side note- I highly recomend listening to the Billie Holiday station on pandora... just because:)
