So I finished Alexia's blanket last night. It definitely took a while to get it done. I had issues with my sewing machine that took a few days to sort out and then I had to tinker with the setting to get it right for the material. Alexia picked out the polka dot fabric (really she did) and I picked the pink to match. She loved that fabric so much she hugged it the whole time we were in the store and when we got home. It is super duper soft and cuddly. This was the practice blanket for all the other ones I an going to make. as of right now I have to make three of them.
