There is something so adorable about watching babies discover their own hands, and their sense of touch. These wee loopy blankies are a perfect baby gift. At only 12" square, they are fast and easy to make up.
I used a variety of ribbon and trim scraps including twill, satin, velvet, embroidered trim and even a scrap of rubber dotted slipper sole fabric for the texture. I hope baby Iain will enjoy finding his favorite loops to love.
I backed the adorable hedgies cotton fabric square with Minky dimples. Quite possibly the softest, most baby friendly fabric on the planet. Just do ask me to sew two pieces of it together! Holy slippery mother of God. When using it for a backing, the key is to have the Minky against your feed dogs so that they can take up the excess. Works like charm.
Thanks for the warning about the terminology on this little project, Jennifer! I'll stick with wee loopy blankie!
I've got one more fun little gift to make for Iain before I send off his package. As long as Canada Post doesn't go on strike tomorrow, that is.
