Irish fabric: large and soft blankets in pinks

A gorgeous (Irish turned Aussie) friend of mine knows my penchant for fabric and making baby blankets, and so bought me these two gorgeous varieties of a minky type fleece all the way from Hickey's fabric store in Ireland when she was last there.

It's taken me ages to decide what to do with them, and I am happy with the result including some fancy stitching, courtesy of my fabulous Janome. These are a larger size than my other blankets, measuring about 78 x 112cm (31 x 44 inches).

I loved them so much I made two of each and put one of each in the store and the other two in the cupboard for special gifts.

Creative catch up... starting with a baby boy blanket in bold colours

Despite it being a long time between posts, last year was not completely creation-free!
So over the next few weeks I will post a few of my projects and hopefully some new ones too.
So, without further ado....
I really love the rich colours and cute characters in this baby boy's blanket.


I have been trying consciously to add some boy flavoured items to my store, as it seems so easy to find beautiful girly fabrics and colours. Without trying too hard, I have been able to find some cute and bold boy prints.
