This was my very first sewing project. Well, it's really not my very first one. While in high school, my first experience in sewing was not that pleasant!! But, I have heard that from many women that they too had a bad experience so I don't count it!!! The great news....I still wanted to learn to sew...I just needed to let go of my history with sewing. I don't believe this was a bad start! This blanket was made for my niece and her stroller. It was the perfect size for a toddler.
