A Life of Grace

Sewing Again

Well, I’ve taken a break from making stuff lately, mostly due to a lack of deadlines, I guess. Perhaps I need more deadlines in my life. Sunday was a shower for a good friend and her sweet, tiny little boy, so I went off to the fabric store in search of some decent flannel and inspiration.

I liked these prints because they were interesting and had a vintage look, unlike the usual selection at Joanne’s which seems to consist of lots of pastels and prints that are just a little bit too cutesy.

I made her two large swaddling blankets and two smaller burp rag things. Why is it so hard to find decent swaddling blankets out there? I remember having such a hard time swaddling Titus when he was little until I discovered the miracle that was large, square flannel blankets and a special little trick that I like to call the “magic swaddle”. It basically resembles putting a baby in a straight jacket and works amazingly well to keep those scratching, flailing baby hands from waking up babies.

Sleep well little Fillipo!
