I needed a gift for my pastor and his wife and wouldn’t you know it, the baby is nearly 6 months old and I just got around to doing this.

It’s a taggie blankie, flannel squares of cuteness!


I found these squares at JoAnn, in a charm square bundle. What could be easier? Oh look! Here they are! I sewed the squares in strips then joined them – yes, this isn’t a “tutorial” so much as a sharing- but you get the idea!

So after I sewed the squares to make the front and back of the blankie, I sewed strips to make little tags. While this was a bit tedious- measuring, cutting, sewing, turning them right side out- it was worth it to coordinate! You can use ribbon- most people do- and I will probably go back to that in the future.

Anyway, I pinned the “tags” inside and then pinned the front and back together. See that tag in the corner? I had to remove it at the end. It made the corners pucker.

It’s simple and sweet- a nice little “something” to celebrate a ManCub!

Thanks for visiting! Be blessed!

I have wrapped hard candy in a dish in the living room.

Every single thing I start to sew starts with inspiration of making something for my grandson.

Same with scrapbooking.

I notice games and toys in the store that he might like when he is a year, 14 months, 18 months and so on…

I wanted to buy a pool float that he can use in 2010.

I did buy two suits… one casual, one dress, for him to wear when he is two… in spring of 2011.

He was here overnight and I miss his sweet smell, his soft skin, his wee toes and tiny fingers, his smile, his soft breathing when he is sleeping, his alert eyes, his cooing and his soft hair.

I am smitten, completely smitten with him, especially when I get to hold him like I did this morning and take pictures of his sweet little face.

Dear God, thank you for this beautiful grandchild. I’m in love.
