Finished Embroidery Blanket

This is the blanket  I helped the 8 year old make this summer. I wanted to share it with you. 
 (the placement of the animals was "intentionally unpredictable," which is how she decided to lay them out.)
Here are the tutorials for hand embroidery and french knotting


 We used two pieces of flannel to make the blanket.
 I folded each edge of the blanked under, and sewed the edge with a large decorative stitch. 
I threaded my machine with orange, and the bobbin with turquoise.

  1. So great! I like to hand embroider every now and then- I usually make greeting cards these days, but this blanket is so cute! Stitch work is so valuable to learn!
