One of my favourite things about our wedding (other than the actual getting married part of course) was all of the personal crafty touches. Thankfully, with Pinterest in it’s early, ad-free days and DIY wedding blogs popping up all over the internet, it was easy to find inspiration. In fact, I had so much fun using Pinterest for wedding planning that I kept on pinning long after the big day. Check out my board here.
In the past few years, the bridal shower invitations that used to clutter my mailbox have been replaced with baby shower invitations. And while I’m not a fan of shower games, I do love an opportunity to make a unique (and tiny) gift! After playing around with knit booties and scrapbooks, I came up with the idea to make a baby quilt. I had seen numerous patterns online to make baby blankets with that soft minky/chenille fabric and I wanted to find a way to do something a bit more challenging. And while I’ve never officially learned how to quilt (Take a quilting class if high on my 2017 to-do list), I figured it wouldn’t be too tricky to patch something together.
