Need a simple gift for a baby boy?

How about a monogrammed flannel blanket and a lizard stuffie! For the monogram I chose a washable fake suede fabric which I machine appliqued onto the flannel.

The binding was made from a camping themed quilting cotton, featuring the browns and blues baby Hayden's room is decorated in.
The little lizard is dotty quilting cotton on one side and lightweight polar fleece on the other. Easy to make and baby friendly!
A bit of printed binding is the easiest way to jazz up a piece of flannel into becoming a one-of-a-kind baby blanket. I think this blanket will be my first choice for baby gifts from now on. Love it.
