Yesterday Dylan and I went fabric shopping for a couple of gifts I am working on. While browsing, we came across flannel with Disney’s Cars characters Lightning McQueen and Mater. Cars is a favorite of Dylan’s right now and he was very excited. I set the bolt across the cart in front of him. He kept pointing at the cars saying, “ca, ca.” How could I not buy a little bit?
After he went to bed last night, I referenced two tutorials (The Crafting Chick’s Minky Baby Blanket and A Feathered Nest’s Simple Baby Blanket). Using the Cars fabric and some dark brown minky dot, I made Dylan a blanket. It’s overall size is 32×36.
Perfect timing as a little impromptu gift for our sweet boy who turns 18 months today! I gave him his new Cars blanket this morning. He immediately began running his finger around it making car sounds. I’m taking that as “thanks, Mom!” 🙂
