Baby Boom

It seems like every time I turn around lately someone else I know is pregnant.  Two of which have already welcomed their little ones into the world this week.  Congrats again!!

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!

First Blog hop!!
