Ric-Rac Baby Blanket

I fell in love with this blanket when I first saw it on Prudent Baby.  I was just dying for an excuse to make one.  Luckily, my cousin and his wife welcomed a beautiful little girl into the world a little more than a week ago.  I finished this before she was born, but didn't want to blog about it until they had received her gift. 

I am so happy with how it turned out that I'm making another one as a baby gift for a little boy due in November.  Charlotte loved it too, so she may get a car blanket in the future.

Here is the finished product.  I don't know the exact size of the finished blanket because it was based on the size of the fabric and the pattern.  I would estimate that it ended up being approximately 40" x 40".  I love a large blanket for a baby.

The polka-dot fabric is cotton and the check is flannel.

The tutorial was fantastic and very easy to follow.

  1. I love the larger baby blankets too. I made one similar for my son when he was first's hard to find extra large receiving blankets. Following you from Blog From...nice to meet you!!! ~Kimberly
