The Elves Are Still Working Here

Last Spring two of my Grandsons asked me to make them Minky blankets.  Robbie, on the left, had a soft blanket that no longer reached from his toes to his chin.  Since then I made one for Callum, Annabelle, and Sydney - using a variety of Minky colors and prints.

After making each double-sided blanket, I had variable width strips of Minky that I just couldn't throw away.  So I ordered 12 x 16" pillow inserts and made matching pillows for each of them as part of their Christmas present.

I also made a "giraffe-print" blanket and matching pillow for William, who will be one this month.  And I had enough leftover lime green to make a small baby blanket for Charlie who was born in September.  I spent all day at the sewing machine making 7 pillows and two blankets.  Happy time!
