I was invited to two showers for Baby D. and there was no way I could knit something for both, so I planned to sew something for the second one. Since Snoopy is his nursery theme, I went searching online and found the cutest fabric for a blanket! I was originally going to sew the Super Quick + Easy Baby Quilt, but I didn’t have the right embroidery stitch on my machine. I tried the zig zag workaround, but that didn’t work well with the fleece. After trying a few ideas, I finally decided on simple, parallel lines. I love the way this turned out and it was really fun to make.

I’d also been itching to make a Wee Bunny, and I thought it would be fun to make one out of matching fabric. He turned out so well, I think I need to make another one for me. (I had a hard time letting this little guy go!)

    I SO didn’t expect you to bring ANOTHER present to the 2nd shower! But I’m so glad you did, because the blanket and bunny are AWESOME! :) I’m so impressed by how far your sewing has come so quickly.

    You were, by the way, the only one subjected to more than one Baby D shower. You’re a good friend. :)
