Still in the 99.9 %ile. . .of thinking about baby Kanneloni Macaroni. . .
I felt it only makes sense. . .
that I blog. . .
what I think about these days.
It was quite fun. . .getting ready behind the scenes. . .
it felt like a great secret that I continually patted myself on the back . . .
for keeping it so close to my heart.
The week before she was born. .
I quickly made a blanket for her car seat.
I'd like to take credit for picking the fun and lively pattern. .
but her mommy knew her better than I. .
and I left her to that task.
It took but a few hours to sew up. .
Wash and dry the cotton.
Cut out a rectangular. . the size appropriate for a infant carrier.
Cut out four lengths of binding. . . two lengthwise .. and two width wise. .
Sew the soft. . .and the cotton together . . .wrong sides together.
Sew the binding on the four sides. . leaving the corners free to make double sided mitred corners. . .(that actually took me the longest to figure out)
Tie the blanket at fun little places. . .birdie feet. . .stems. . lion whiskers. .
and you are done.. .
Then you say ..
"ta dah". ...and you wait. . some more.
Ah . .but once tucked inside. .
she sleeps like a lamb.
