It was hard to figure out what to do to match that, but then I found out she had hung up to giraffe pictures right after I bought the giraffe material, so I figured it would be okay! Whew!
What are you most proud of?
I'm proud of my cousin. She and her husband will make wonderful parents and I'm SO HAPPY for them. The blanket turned out super soft and I hope they get YEARS of comfort out of it.

make sure you back ALL FUZZY MATERIAL with tear away paper/stabilizer because if you do not, it may not feed through the sewing machine straight and it will distort your blanket. This is a pain, but the only way to make it look right in the end.
