Texture Ribbon Blanket for baby Lawson.

A girlfriend of mine that lives interstate had a baby a few weeks back and I wanted to make him something a bit different to all the normal things you get when you pop out a baby.
So I trawled the net for some inspiration and stumbled across these blankets, they are made from soft Minkee fabric, quilting fabric and an assortment of ribbons.
I found the gorgeous mint Minkee at spotlight on the remnants table and it was the perfect size also I scored a bag of ribbon offcuts so all up this blanket cost me about $12.
I decided to cut out some fabric in the letter "L" and sew it onto the fabric side of the blankie, I used a bright orange polkadot offcut.

I am pretty chuffed with the final result.
