CYO No-Sew Knot Blanket

7 Mar

A Ten51 TUTORIAL

Let me start by saying, I do not sew. I know this is a drawback when it comes to crafting {and maybe someday I’ll learn} but that day is not today.

EZ Knot Blanket

This blanket only took me about an hour to make. It makes such a great baby gift! I used 1-yard of Blizzard Fleece fabric from Joanne Fabric’s. I would recommend using 1/2 yard for a baby blanket. First, lay the two pieces of fleece on top of each other {w/ the “nice” sides facing outwards}. Then trim the edges to make an even square {or rectangle}. After that, cut slits about 1/2 inch apart and 1 inch deep. Once cuts have been made around the entire edge, start double-knotting the tabs of each fabric together. Sit back, watch your favorite show {Modern Family in my case}, and knot away until you’ve knotted every tab on the blanket. And that’s it! No sewing involved. I loved this easy project, and Rea seemed to enjoy its coziness too!

Our Baby Girl Nursery

5 Feb

When considering what colors we’d like our baby girl’s nursery to be, my husband had a vision of white wainscoting and yellow walls. With this in mind, I started my search for her bedding! I’m all for letting a kid be a kid, but I knew I didn’t want something too kiddo in the design of the room. We don’t really dig pink and were very disappointed in what we found throughout the local baby stores. It was times to search online! I was so excited when I stumbled upon the Delilah bedding by Cocalo Couture. It was perfect!

Comforter

Next was figuring out what to put on the walls. Time to get creative! I really like the “Stay Calm and Carry On” sayings that you can pretty much find everywhere anymore. I decided to create one of my own and scan in her blanket from the set. I came up with: Keep Calm and Rattle On

Keep Calm and Carry On

Crib     Glider

Our daughter Reagan was born in July, and we absolutely love how her nursery turned out. It may just be my favorite room in our home. Sitting with her in that glider is definitely one of the best {and most comfortable} seats in the house.
