i have a blanket that my aunt/godmother made me when i was young. i still use it and love it.

so, when i came across this tutorial, i knew that i had to make it for my new niece.

it was my first blanket and i actually enjoyed making it!  

i did the minky fabric on the back and the polka dots for the front with hot pink binding. 

i think AG liked it - or at least i think her mom did :)
