This Vanilla and Chocolate baby blanket was custom made for my cousin who is going to have a baby soon.
The Blanket is my run-to baby blanket.
While I have made many baby blankets for little ones in the family, the flip flops are a first.
I rarely make baby booties or flip flops. I might have made a couple for Lil B and then for my nephew, that is it.
It took some time for me to get my head around the concept of having to make a new born to three months size. Are baby feet really that small?!! What if it is too small, what if it doesn’t fit … ah those doubts come without calling!And then I checked the sole size for newborns and the size was spot on! phew! big relief.
I so wanted to add a ribbon to secure it tightly .The to-be parents have chosen not to find the gender of the baby yet and wanted a gender neutral option. And so i made this. After I packed and posted the package to Auckland, where it has reached now, I got an idea for a simple tie. Ah, hind sight is always 20/20!
At the moment I’m on a making mission . I have finished some of the unfinished projects that I had sitting in my WIP basket. Feeling very productive, I made a few more things with the plan of stocking them in my Etsy Store.
Its the photography part of it that gives me the heebie-jeebies. However, slowly but surely we will over come that too 😀
