Our fellow flight friends are having their first baby in Oct and it's a boy! I knew they would have a flight theme for their baby's room, so I instantly started brainstorming! I didn't have a pattern, so this quilt idea came from my head. I machine quilted it, and it's full of mistakes but still turned out really cute! I used flannel in the middle instead of batting and I sewed it into a pouch and turned it so it's bindingless. It also has two weaving scraps in it!
I knew it would be cute so I made two, one for them and one for us!
It's sized for use with hot wheels cars, planes, and helicopters. It can be used right away or later as a playmat.
My goal here was to make a blanket out of stash yarn for our baby due on Thanksgiving day (Nov 24th)! We don't know if it's a boy or girl yet, but I feel that this blanket would work well with either one. I used 8/4 cotton from Webs and wove it on my 8 shaft baby wolf using doubleweave. It's done in plain weave to minimize the baby pulling on threads. (My two year old has a twill blanket and he likes pulling threads out!) It's very soft, and I'm extremely happy with how it turned out! I can't wait to wrap our new little baby in it!
