[KCWC] First Project: Receiving Blanket and Matching Jacket

so i started with first gear, and sewn something relatively easy.  a PINK coloured receiving blanket 🙂  (yes, it is going to be a girl!)  really, not much sewing skills needed – straight line, 4 mitre corners and voila!

my oh-so-soft and oh-so-pink receiving blanket 🙂

and then i decided to make a matching little jacket with the leftover fabric.  after all, i need to start this project with a bang, no? hehe..

a very simple, almost patternless tiny little jacket. finished off with some bias binding, and added some tiny lace as well. now isn't this sweet?

i used the bias tape as the ribbon tie as well. and decided to hand stitch (<3 with lots of and lots of love ❤ )to finish off the bias binding. can you see the little lace along the bias binding? the jacket is so tiny and ultra soft. lil j saw it and said "is that for my sister?" then he added, "it feels so cosy" as he touched it... i just love that boy!

not bad to start off this “challenge” eh?  today, i am thinking of making a jammies for lil j… stay tuned!
