I love blankets. My house has lots, every room has a cosy blanket in it. Our favourite thing at night is to get comfy on the sofa with a blanket and watch a movie. When I first started sewing, my baby was around 6 months (wish I learned before she was born) and I made very basic blankets. It was the reason I started sewing. I thought how hard can it be to sew a square (I was wrong as sewing straight for a beginner is tough lol)
Fast forward to now and many many blanket disasters later and blankets are still my favourite thing to make. I love buying pretty fabric and its the first thing I want to make with them.
At Christmas my little one was mad about Disney Toy Story and watched it everyday. So I set myself a challenge to make a cowboy (Woody) blanket. It turned out great. I love it. April went off toy story just before Christmas ……….Cant make this stuff up but sure she will go back at some point
Cotton REd (half metre)
Gingham yellow check (Fat quarter)
Cow print fabric . (half metre)
Red fleece for the back (metre)
I embroidered the sheriff badge and buttons on (all available from Etsy) and her name also .
I think it has turned out great and much cheaper than a standard Disney blanket.
Hope you like
