A Patchwork Blanket

patchwork blanket This patchwork blanket is for my almost five year old daughter who loves all things pink.  I’ve been working on making patchwork blankets for my kids for Christmas and  this one is the first to be completed.  We’ve had a couple of cold snaps in the last few weeks and I really enjoy thinking about all the snuggling this blanket will get. I really love repurposing items and fabrics so that they can be loved and used again. Most of the fabrics on the top have been sitting in my stash for a while, but I used a vintage sheet that I love for the back.  I love all of the bright colours and flowers and I know that my daughter will too.  It is big enough to completely wrap my little girl up in or for several of us to sit and share  some cuddles. My favourite thing about this blanket is that the sheet I used for the back was my mother’s favourite bedsheet when she was my daughter’s age.
