Baby Bunny Pink
After getting reacquainted with my Hello Kitty Janome sewing machine last week making the soft fabric book, I decided to tackle another sewing project. I know a few babies that are arriving this Summer, so I need to start making the gifts now. Jo-Ann Fabrics sells these quilt kits called Cuddly Quilt Kit. I bought 2 kits in January. This one is called Baby Bunny Pink. It comes with all the fabric for the front and back and includes easy directions. This quilt doesn't require batting. The rights sides are sewn together leaving a small opening and then you turn the quilt right side out.The directions are very clear in how to cut out all the pieces and how to assemble. My biggest and only complaint is the choice of fabrics they give you. Most of the fabric is cotton and flannel, but there is also satin and a eyelet cloth that has embroidery all over it. Those two were very hard to sew with. I ripped out the sewing many times, but decided to just go with it at the end because I was beyond frustrated. Surprisingly, the pink heart plush for the borders didn't give me any problems.It's not perfect, but it's still cute. It's a light blanket, perfect for a Summer baby girl.The back is a flannel print, called Bunny Words. The size of the blanket is 30.5" by 36".
