Ric Rac Receiving Blanket and Burp Cloths

Joel’s brother and his wife are having their first baby this fall, and it’s a girl! I was probably as excited as they were when I found out the gender, because it meant I’d get to make some girly things for a gift!

I used my Ric Rac Receiving Blanket tutorial and Della Flannel by Valori Wells to make this blanket.
Doesn’t Valori design adorable flannel?
Using the same technique as in my tutorial, I also made a matching burp cloth. Does the piecing look like it was on purpose? Cause it totally was :).
I think that jumbo ric rac is about one of the best things ever created, don’t you?

I can’t wait for the little one to arrive – she’ll be my 10th niece!
