As I posted at the end of the Jean Corsage tutorial last Friday, I am a guest blogger over at Someday Craft today to share my newest tutorial. You will see what I did with the rest of the fabric from my old jeans. So please head over and check it out, I don't hate comments! :)
I posted about the quilts I have made for my children before: here, here, and here. The two older children, they loved the quilts I have made for them but, never got attached to any of them.
My youngest and little girl; she loves quilts and blankets in general, but she LOVES this particular one. It goes everywhere she goes. You see her with this blanket at church, grocery stores (that means all the other stores as well), doctor's appointments, grandma's house, the park... I mean everywhere. when she is taking a shower, the blanket sits outside the door and waits for her...
You are probably wondering, which one, show me the picture, so here goes.
I didn't make this one. My mom who lives in Japan sent it to her when she was little over one year old. It is made out of fleece, and to tell you the truth, I am not crazy about the color or the character print. But she loves it! I don't think she is attached to it because her Japanese grandma sent it for her. I don't think it is because of the softness, the blanket I made has really soft minky. We all don't know why she is so attached to this.
Every now and then she voluntarily asks me to wash her blanket. It is good that she doesn't scream her head off or anything, but she mopes around the house. She even waits in front of the dryer until it's done.
One day we were at one of the fabric store, and Rachel said "Mommy I want that!!" In the direction she was looking at, I found the cutest cream color fleece with pink piggies on it. Well, I decided to get that and make a blankt for her, since I haven't done that for a while. She loved it, Yeah!
The picture is when the yellow blanket is in the wash and she is waching TV.
I thought that maybe, just maybe, she grew out of the yellow blanket. I can do a cream color blanket with soft pink piggies... I grinned secretly.
Nope. What was I thinking?! As soon as the beep sounded to let us know that the laundry was all dry, she threw the piggy blanket across the room and run to the laundry room to get her one and only yellow blanket.
I think it is somewhat annoying but at the sametime, very cute that she is like that, and I know this stage won't last forever. Pretty soon, she will be saying "What blanket?". Might as well enjoy this stage with her.
