As some of you may know I make ribbon blankets a.k.a Lulu Loveys that I consign at a local baby store. Well whenever I find out someone is having a baby the Lulu is my go to gift. I found the cutest flannel at Joanne's. I wish I could buy that whole section! So many adorable patterns to choose from.
Here's what I made:
How cute is that argyle? LOVE it! And the little animals...eek! Flannel has come a long way since lumberjack shirts!
The Lulu measures around 15" squared with 5 looped tags on each side. My favorite part of the whole process is picking out the fabric and coordinating ribbon. I usually spend more time on picking the right ribbon then actually sewing the blanket! :-)
The two bibs were made out of the the same flannel I used for the Lulu (obviously :-)) with solid white flannel to back and pearl snaps to close. I usually make larger bibs with terry cloth to back but they are more for babies who are eating solid food. I thought an all flannel bib was perfect for drool bibs. And the flannel is soft enough that it won't irritate a newborn baby's skin.
My husband's cousin and my friend from college both had girls so I made two of these lulu and bib sets. I hope they like them as much as I do!
