Welcome, Baby Flynn

One of my dear friends just had her baby boy, and I took the opportunity to make another recieving blanket for him.  This time I used Organic cotton from the Monaco Collection by Monaluna.  The scooters were just too cute, and the organic cotton was soft and lovely.  The back side is in a super soft, unbleached flannel.

For this project I learned how to hand sew the opposite side of the binding so that the stitching is invisible.  It was easy and restful work.  I felt like I was putting love for baby Flynn in each stitch. 














I also purchased the same scooter print in a pink colorway: just in case a little girl comes
along!
