More soft and cuddly

I had a sewing day yesterday and made these cute little blankets, each measuring about 10 inches square with 12 little ribbon loops. 
 The front is polycotton in a cute nursery design and the backer of each is a soft fleece fabric. The ribbon loops are triple stitched for security.

Half the fun is choosing the ribbons from my stash and deciding where to position them. I had the order for 1 in pink and 1 in purple the day before but suddenly I was required to make 2 pink ones. Luckily i'd been shopping and picked up a few new ribbons. I like to use a good mix of texture and widths to add more interest.

My local craft shop has had a 50% off sale on for a couple of weeks but didn't have much to choose from in my colours so I just got the wide pink ribbon in 2 shades. I'd already got the lovely spotty ribbons and a few of the others, I particularly like the ric rac.

These have already been posted off, wrapped carefully in tissue paper before going in a plastic bag and large envelope , one for a newborn girl and 2 to be put away I think for one due later in the year.
