This Saturday I'm taking you back to a little over two and a half years ago, when I was so excited to be having pink in my life that I'd decided to use some of my maternity leave time to make something for the little person that was growing inside my tummy. I bought the fabric at Hancock's and remembering it must have taken me a couple of hours to decide on the texture and print alone. I wanted something different, not another Disney character or princess pattern. I liked this print so much because it's made of silky satin with a poodle pattern doing all the girlie things like taking a bubble bath, getting her hair done, etc.
I had bought enough materials for a bumper, a long pillow, and a blanket. I made the trims with a light fleece material and crossed my fingers that it would go with the satin. Well, it did because the fleece material helped keep the edges flat and down.
It turned out that Miss Trinity LOVES dogs and I am very happy that she became so attached to this blanket. It could be because of the color, the dog pattern, the satin material keeping her warm but not hot, or she could just be feeling a lot of love from the "blanchet" - that's how she pronounces blanket now.
The first two pictures were taken two and a half years ago.
These three pictures below were taken this week. Remember this blanket had been around for a couple of years, so it has been through some rough testing, and Trinity already tried to re-designed most of the beads I had sewn on.
