Kid's Roll-Up Nap Blanket

Kid's Roll-Up Blanket
Hello Everyone,

I finally finished my Kid's Roll-Up Nap Blanket for my nephew "M" that Sew4Home had on their website. I had so much fun picking out the fabrics with my Mom and making it was even more fun. The instructions on Sew4Home's website were very easy and they have pictures to go along with each step. They also have so many beautiful things to make for your family or home.

*Note: I was trying out my portrait lens when I took these pictures, so they came out not as pretty as I would have liked.

I love both coordinating fabrics and the blue fleece. This was also my first attempt at binding a blanket. It was a little trying at times, but, I'm sure with practice it will come out better.


I used a lot of batting so that when "M" would nap he would be comfortable, but, I didn't anticipate when you rolled it up that it would be difficult to close. So, with the help from "E" we rolled up tight and I think my sister will have a good time taking care of that. LOL


I also made homemade labels that I found at Sew May Ways website. I love that I can personalize a project this way.

When my sister "E" received it in the mail the other day, she absolutely loved it. The nicest compliment was from her husband "E" and her neighbors on the block who thought she bought it from a store.


Hope you all have a wonderful week. I am linking up with these  parties and TCB.
