I did actually do something recently though! A friend at work is getting married, so I made a swaddler for her coming baby. They are not going to find out the gender before hand so I tried to stay gender neutral. It's too bad because I have some really lovely children's fabrics.
This is a dumb dot print by Michael Miller that I got from the Fat Quarter Shop with plain white on the inside.
There it is open, and it's hard to tell but I placed the velcro so that there would be the max amount of adjustability with the least amount of velcro. I used a pattern from Pinterest, but the original design is available for free here. I didn't have an appropriate fabric for lining it (fleece/flannel) so I used a cotton and then lined it with batting. This makes it a bit thicker than it's supposed to be, so hopefully it all works out ok. It was a good afternoon project and I think it makes a wonderful shower gift.
So, sharing this on WIP Wednesday!
