One of my sorority sisters asked me to make her a blanket using her son’s blankets and baby clothes.
I used 98% of the baby items on the front and the back. I also used a layer of cotton batting plus a layer of polyester mid-loft to give it that extra coziness you can see. I chose a free-hand meander on my long-arm machine to give it just enough density to make the negative space puff up.
My “sister” and I were both proud of how it turned out. Thank you for letting me help you cherish your son’s baby memories with this blanket, Karen.
After years of thinking about it I finally found the perfect person to create our memory blanket. This quilt is made of all our favourite baby Sammy onesies and receiving blankets; it is crazy awesome, super soft and brings a tear to my eye. Thank you Elizabeth for sharing your incredible skills and what little spare time you have to make this treasure! ~ Karen R.
Beautiful! I did one for my son and it didn’t turnout one tenth as cute! I am sure this blanket will be treasured for years to come.
found this on Lou Lou Girls Linky.

Wow, what a treasure! Love the free-hand meander … just beautiful!

So sweet! What a wonderful way to preserve the little onesies and make them last a lifetime. Thanks for sharing with Scraptastic Saturdays.
This is amazing! I’ve been saving some special clothes from each of my girls to possibly do this one day! Love it! Thanks for linking up!
You totally should! (That said, I should get one made for my two kids who are now 7 and 8 years old).
