A gift for baby

A good friend of mine recently had a baby boy, so I embroidered a baby blanket for the baby with his name on it.

I love that I have sewing machine that allows me to embroider a name or image on to a gift like this.  It makes a simple gift something that is very personal.

And of course, I made a card to go with the gift.


  1. Very pretty!! Did you make the blanket too, or embroider a pre-made blankie? What kind of sewing machine do you use?

    I love the card too ... and the definition of Boy on the paper: "Boy, n.: a noise with dirt on it" LOL

    Fondly,Your Sistah,

  2. I bought the blanket and then just added the name. It is nice because it adds just a little bit of a personal touch to gift, and since I am just adding the name it is not a ton of work for me.

    I have a Brother 8500-D . . . Jeff got it for me for an anniversary gift one year. It has a few Disney character images built right into the machine, so right after I got it I embroidered Mickey Mouse on our luggage . . . it helps our luggage stands out from the crowd.

  3. Really something innovative post. Keep posting informative ideas. I love this post.
