When I'm making baby blankets I'm always shopping for cute baby patterns. I love teddy bears, Winnie the Pooh, and all the precious baby patterns that are out there.
There are some moms though, who prefer more grown up patterns for their little ones, and I decided I wanted to make some pretty baby blankets that would appeal to them.
This striped fabric isn't a traditional baby pattern, but I loved the color combination. With cream, brown, pink, periwinkle, lime and orange stripes, this pattern is a bit more sophisticated than rubber duckies, and could be used for baby boys or girls.
I bought enough fabric to make a few blankets. This first one I edged in periwinkle. I really like the way it came out. I have more yarn in pink and in cream that coordinates with this fabric, but I really like the way this yarn calls out that blue stripe. I think it helps to make this more grown up pattern a bit more youthful.
