Easy To-Do: Light Layers to Wrap Spring Babies

Amora's Jersey Blankie
I used a soft cotton jersey sheet set in fuchsia that I found on sale at Target. To create the blankie, I cut, from the top sheet, two squares of the same size. I then sewed the two pieces together, with the sewing machine and hand stitches, to make two layers. To add a bit more dimension, I cut in reverse appliqué shapes and hand stitched around them.

I really like the look of different colors of embroidery thread on the hot pink color, they really pop.

The versatility of this type of blanket is really worth making a few in different colors or patterns. Another plus is this blanket is very washable, making it the perfect baby accoutrement. 
Amora seemed to tire of her role as baby model.
