baby blanket

I've got a friend SO ready to give birth to a baby girl. Her second child. I had her little boy draw a picture for his sister-to-be. Not bad for a three year old, huh? :) It's the new baby. With a bow in her hair. So adorable.

I embroidered the picture's design onto pink linen....

And then sewed that pink linen into this...

Here's the back...

My husband doesn't quite appreciate the embroidery...because he has never been a mom. About to give birth to her second baby. That will now have tangible evidence of her son's artistic ability two weeks before second baby's arrival. I'm hoping that this friend will appreciate this tangible evidence. :)

What do you think?

I think it's awesome! Poo-poo to your husband, who of course doesn't get it. I would cry!

What a fantastic idea!!! She is going to love that. As will the little sister as she grows up with that quilt knowing her big brother loves her. So sweet.

That's really lovely. I would definitely love it. It's just what a new-to-two mum needs. When my second came along, my family, thinking that they were helpful, took my first away for the day so I could "rest." I was never so lonely as that day. The blanket is perfect.

Thanks for the comment on my blog!

I love it. What a wonderful and amazing gift to all of them. It will be a favorite I'm sure, looks like a very soft and cozy choice of fabric too. Big brother will be so proud = ]
