I made this blanket for the new baby. Since we don't know what we are having I thought it would be perfect. The blanket is self binding. It was easier than I thought it would be. I found it on another blog and wanted to try it. I've also seen it done with 2 pieces of flannel and I can't wait to try it when the baby comes so I can make some in the appropriate colors.
I wanted to make it so the minky was on the back and the giraffe print was on the front but after reading some of the reviews, decided I would do it this way. I'm glad I did. I really like the way it turned out!
