this is a receiving blanket i just dolled up for my new lil bean, natalia. i took a striped receiving blanket, some ivory flannel salvaged from a torn bed sheet and some fabric from my stash. cut some hearts from the fabric, zigzagged them to the ivory flannel and sewed the two pieces together. finally, i cut the edges to the stitching to give a little fringed look.
