This is the first baby related project I've made so far for my own baby. Yup that's right! I'm having a baby!! In about 5 months a special little person is about to enter my life and change it forever. WOW. No matter how much I think about it, it still just doesn't feel real enough. I'm so glad nature plans it this way, with 9 months to prepare for such a life altering arrival because I need every minute of it.
The Purl Bee is one of my favourite craft blogs and is a constant source of inspiration. Lucky for me their baby projects are fantastic and they have a couple swaddling blanket projects that have inspired me to create my own. A friend gave me lots of baby fleece (I am already blown away by the generosity of friends and fellow moms, thank you all!) and I knew right away how to put it to good use. I'm pretty sure a baby can't have too many swaddling blankets (especially when I imagine the immense laundry/lack of sleep factor that will clearly take over my life) so I will definitely be making a more of these in various colors and patterns.
