Baby Shower Gift

The aden + anais muslin swaddle blankets have become really popular with parents. Back in the 70s and 80s, we did not have blankets like these! A nice feature is that they are a generous 44" x 44". Those who choose to "swaddle" their baby have lots of options with a blanket of that size. "Back in the Day", we wrapped the baby up, but today there is a whole sophisticated set of instructions for proper swaddling of the baby. I think I am glad that my baby-raising days were long ago (although I have had to learn a new thing or two for taking care of the grandbabies!)

Anyway, I needed to make a baby shower gift, and embroidered designs on two of these muslin blankets. I also made a card to go with the gift. The stork and baby are from a PTI set; the chevron paper is Crate's "Fourteen" from last year. The grass was diecut. The blankets will be packaged in a clear cellophane bag, tied with bridal tulle.

And here is one more photo, of Aden blankets embroidered for a baby gift:
