I’m on the hunt for some fabric for my little man. I want to make him a snuggle blanket – especially for him from me. Problem is … 1) I’m having a hard time finding/deciding on fabric and 2) Spending alot of fabric makes me nervous because I’m a very beginning sewer.
We’re going to migrate the woodland/forest theme into the kid’s room, because it still very much suites Jemma and a little boy fits into the woods just fine. So, part of me is looking for something woodsy. I also like nautical things for boys. I’m not at all feeling monsters or robots.
So far, I’ve decided to go with a regular cotton and a soft minky. I’m even going to try one of those silky bindings … pending on how my beginner skills play out. I’m going to practicing with the binding on a little lovie first though.
These are the couple fabrics I’ve run across so far. Boy options are few and far between! These two are from Etsy …
Left – gray design with turquoise minky (the colors didn’t come across too well) & Right – leaves with dark gray minky
