Sunday Sewing – Baby Blankets

I’ve been sewing even more blankets lately, but in a much smaller size:

This one was made to fit the Andalusian foal mold.

It also fits the Gilen/Heartbreaker mold as well. These were fairly easy for me to make, so I came up with a couple more colors, both of which can be found in my Etsy shop.

The newborn one was supposed to be an expandable type of foal blanket. It didn’t quite turn out that way but I still like how it came out.

Squee!

It also fits Le Fire, but it’s a bit loose in places.

Foal blankets are fun and a nice break from the larger, more complicated ones. The hardest part is choosing which color to make them in! XD

Turnout Blanket

Another blanket was finished up this weekend.

Like Henry’s blanket, I tried several new things with this one.

I’ve been wanting to make a turnout blanket for a while now. The challenge was how to add gussets – those triangle shaped pieces – and keep them neat and in scale-ish with the rest of the blanket. I tried this a long time ago and it wasn’t working at all. Lately the idea’s been nagging at me, so I approached it differently and the end result was much, much better.

Sometimes it just helps to leave ideas on the back-burner for a while.

Another thing I wanted to try was a two-toned blanket. This was a lot easier than I thought it would be, so now I’m eager to try combining solid colors with all my goofy prints. XD

It was very time consuming but I’m happy with how it came together in the end.
