Blanket Stitch

My Cousin just found out that they are having a girl! I was really excited to get something together to take to her when we visit her on Halloween.  I found some fabric at Joann's-- It was precut and discounted.  It wasnt that big of a piece, but babies start out small right?  Well, i didnt want to make it a "no-sew" blanket because I didnt want to lose too much of the blanket with the fringe.  So, I found a wonderful tutorial at futuregirl that has very clear and concise step by step pictures.  Here are two of her great close-ups:

My stitches didn't turn out as clean, but it was my first try! I had some hot pink embroidery floss already on hand so this blanket cost me $4 to make. Im excited to see her tomorrow and give it to her!

Have a wonderful day and Happy Halloween!
