Make Something Monday-Sock Monkey blanket

Make Something Monday

Make Something Monday is a new meme I found over at Jolly Mom. We are to post about something that we have made, be it a recipe or a project.

This week I want to show off the blanket that I made for Lexy's 5th b-day this month. Lexy LOVES sock monkeys and while browsing on e-bay one day she saw me looking at some sock monkey fabric and told me that she wanted a sock monkey blanket for her birthday. I'm not great at sewing but I can sew a straight line so I thought this was a doable gift. I bought the fabric Lexy liked and then found a very soft minky dot fabric for the back. Here's how it turned out...





Lexy LOVES this blanket and has me cover her up with it every night before I hand her lovey, sock monkey and froggie!
