handmade: fabric letters and a blanket for mia

Alice June shares the same initials as my grandma, so I wanted them to show up somewhere in her nursery.

I'd planned to buy something but then I realized I could just make my own. These were super easy, fast and addictive to make. I drew my own letters (but you could easily print any font) and printed them out, cut the fabric, topstitched, and then stuffed them. I had some left over tape measure printed trim that I used to make hanging loops. Easy and cute.

Then I made a blanket for a friend's baby girl, Mia. I wanted something a little girly, but not overly so. A pretty Anna Maria Horner print flannel that mixes sweet pink with blues and greens, a white minky back, and dark pink rick rack trim.
