Rainbow Blanket

Kris got a new sling to carry Penny in.  It is in this bright rainbow print.  There was some fabric left over, and Kris asked if maybe I could make something from it.

So I backed it with some cream colored wool I felted and stitched in the ditch along the color lines, quilting the two fabrics together. 

This will work great for protecting Penny from the cold when in her sling, and also won't slip like a smooth fabric might.  Kris loves wool and Penny doesn't seem to mind it.  Grandma is itchy just sewing with it and I sneeze whenever I have to cut wool fabric.  The things we do for love;-)

Just a little hand sewing of the binding I cut from the same fabric and reversed the stripes for a little fun.

If I can't have sweet p. in my arms, at least I know she'll be warmed by Grandma's work.  Have a beautiful day my friends!
