First Attempt at Fabric

I wasn't sure how this would turn out but I wanted to make a blanket for my mom for Christmas. Well, With a little photoshop work and some of my favorite pics of my son Grant (yes, here he is in fabric form) I created a simple repeat and then sent the file off to the fabulous folks at Spoonflower. When the fabric came to my door I was so excited and so pleased with the job they had done. Way to go Spoonflower!!! Here are some pics of the fabric repeat and the finished piece. The color was "bang" on and the fabric is very soft and smooth and well, nice.

I have to send many, MANY kudos out to my sis Carrie at weavergirlguz for walking me through the steps to creating such a blanket as I have never sewn one before. I am starting to think of cool fabric ideas for my second! Thanks Carrie and Luv ya Mom.
