I had/have a lot of pregnant friends. It's just the plain and simple truth. In the past few months alone, I have four friends that have had six babies...that is a lot of baby gifts to buy! So I got it in my head that I am going to start making stuff. Handmade gifts are so sweet and personal (even though I do know people who turn their noses up at things that aren't store bought! Seriously!), and they just seem so much better....that's just my opinion.
Maggie, despite the fact that I haven't met her yet, is my best guy friends little girl... and I love her so so so so sooooooo much. I had been thinking a while on making her a little carseat blanket or something to keep her warm on the cold days in the car, but daddy and I decided that just a regular play blanket might be much more useful. So knowing this guy as well as I do, I went on an etsy search for some cotton flannel printed with robots...and then picked up some lime green "minky" at Joann's.
