Baby Gift

This morning my friend Rebecca finally had her baby! It's a boy, Justin, and I'm looking forward to meeting him tonight. This afternoon I made a recieving blanket for him (I bought this fabric in Manitoba this past weekend. I'm so glad I could use it already!)

I just love bias bindings. I finally bought a bias tape maker and it saves time. Not alot of time, but definately worth it. I will dedicate another post to bias bindings with some photos. (Yeah, after I make myself a new ironing board cover. Mine is not ready to be photographed.)

I took photos as I was making the rounded corners. First fold your fabric in quarters and cut with your rotary cutter so it's a perfect square. Then look around your toy room, which is a big mess as usual and find a toy plate. Put it on the corner like so

Then cut around it (through all layers) and you have this.

Easy, peasy.

  1. That's how I round corners when I crochet around the edge of flannel blankets, but I use a dessert plate. :) Thanks for the comment at SewChic because it led me to your blog, and I love what I see here.
