Homemade Christmas Gift Idea Exchange is going on over at Kisses of Sunshine and I wanted to join in. I don't actually sew, nor am I crafty, but my mother-in-law made the cutest blankets for my kids last year and I wanted to share with everyone. She picked colors and fabric designs she knew the kids would love, and then sewed two large fabrics together for a personalized blanket. She handstitched the blankets, but I'm sure you could do it with a machine. I like the homemade stitching I see because it shows me Meemee was thinking of them during each stitch. They take these blankets with them on every roadtrip. My kids think you can't travel for longer than an hour in the car without a blanket and pillow. Actually, I was the same way as a little girl. Here is a picture of all three blankets. Ashley's is the green and aqua which matches her room colors. Seth's is of course the camo in the middle, and Annie's is the purple and pink poodle print. Annie's is so soft that she often catches me cuddling up with it on the couch. Can you blame me?
