Ella’s blankies

One of the next sewing projects I tackled was a simple one, but arguably the most used and loved… some blankies for Ella.  I picked up some super soft material and some satiny material and made three identical blankies, roughly 15″ square.  I’m not sure why I chose pink, since before I had a girl I was definitely NOT a fan a pink, and nothing else in Ella’s room is pink, but as it turns out, now that she is 2, she CANNOT GET ENOUGH PINK!  So it worked out rather well in the end.  And now… a picture overload of Ella and her blankies.


They are perfect for cuddling with in bed…


for when she’s feeling a little sick…


for play when she’s getting a little sleepy…


for long car rides…


for sharing with pets and brothers…

(Yay for small victories!) I’m *hoping* that by the time she’s three she’ll want to give them up on her own… but I may just be fooling myself on that one!

Thanks for reading!
