I needed a simple gift set I could whip together on short notice for a sweet lady I know who just became a grandmother. I figured you can never go wrong with a baby blanket and wet bag, so I whipped up a 35" x 35" baby blanket with a cute Riley Blake All Star flannel on one side, and the can't-ever-go-wrong-with-it Herringbone in Pond print from JDewb's Modern Meadow line on the other. That print matches everything, I swear....which is why I have half a bolt of it in my sewing room. Shh...don't tell the hubs! I'd rather he not have an aneurism and leave me a single parent, lol.
The other item is a coordinating Wet Bag made with my favorite print from Going Coastal, and an orange PUL for the lining. The recipient lives in the Gulfport/Ocean Springs area, so what could be more appropriate than a super cute beach print? Not to mention it's adorable...and Emily Herrick (the designer) and her mom are two of the sweetest ladies you could hope to meet. Me and my rogue group of friends ran into them at Material Girls back at the Sewing Summit in 2011 when we were all being bad and ditching class...mwahaha! *twirls evil mustache*
