I've been wanting to make a blanket for Jackson but I've learned in my short sewing career that I am very indecisive when it comes to picking out fabric-- too many choices! I ventured over to my favorite place, the Quilting Cottage, to try and get some ideas and I saw this adorable lime green fabric with dogs on it. I showed it to Jackson and when he instantly smiled I knew it was the one. A very nice lady who works there helped me pick out the cute flannel for the back and the fabric I used to bind the edges. She even cut the fabric for the binding for me and gave me a mini lesson in the store. Now THAT is what I call customer service. Eat your heart out JoAnn's!
To personalize it, I decided to stitch a "j" into one of the corners. Thankfully my friend (and neighbor) Katie showed me how. The blanket took longer than it probably should have and it is by no means perfect, but I am happy with how it turned out. It's nice and big and lightweight and I think J-dawg likes it :)
