Baby Blanket with Robot Applique

Oh, I had so much fun putting this together, and Andrew loved it, too! ┬áHe’s a little disappointed it isn’t for him, but it’s available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

I originally bought the robot fleece to make a small baby blanket for my son when he was first born. And the grey fleece was left over from a t-shirt quilt I made a couple of weeks ago. I’ve had this idea for a long time and I’m so excited that I finally had the time to put it all together!

It’s pretty self explanatory…lots of little felt pieces, attached with heat bond tape, then appliqued on by machine. My grandmother’s old sewing machine (which is awesome!) has lots of cute embroidery options, so I had a good time using those on the buttons and arm and foot bands.

I’ve got just enough fabric for a second blanket……
