I had been admiring Anneliese’s heirloom cut chenille baby blanket over on the Aesthetic Nest for a while, when my husband Jaime suggested we make a version of this blanket. Although Jaime often helps with projects that I am working on, it is pretty rare that he suggests we take on a craft project so I was very excited to make this with him. This was an ambitious project for us as this was my third sewing project–the first two being clutches for my bridesmaids and our wedding programs. Jaime had a bit more sewing experience having also sewn a pillow in sixth grade. Despite having so little sewing experience, we were thrilled with the results of this project.
With many kids heading back to school soon, I thought that I’d share a quick project for kids. What better way to spend one of the last days of summer than outside making a succulent dish garden? I think these dishes would also make a nice teacher appreciation gift.
