I decided to make a learning tool for the babe of a friend who loves her animals. I wanted something that was more then a blanket - something that could be used to tell stories and help a kid learn to talk about their world, to discover colors and all that good stuff.
Luckily, I found the best fabric and interspersed it with the rather large collection of animal fabrics I already possessed and tada!
The piece is 44inches by 36 inches; each piece was first sewed onto the backing before each edge was embroidered over top. The binding was attached by sewing machine (thanks mom!).
I'm thrilled that both my friend and her wee bairn love the piece and get a lot of use from it!
