Nap Blanket

Our guild is making nap blankets for a kindergarten class in a low economic region of our city. Often these little guys lay down on the floor with nothing. I had some Harry Potter fabric that was begging to be used just for this. We were asked to use about a yard of fabric and simply sew a front to a back and flip it inside out to finish. I had some left over flannel from a nephew's quilt so thought it would make a cozy back. I haven't fliped anything right side out like this in a long time, but I was taken back to my first 4H project...a babushka (head scarf) and my Mom standing over me reminding me to take my time and showing me how to use a pin to pull out the fabric at the corners and getting them crisp before pressing and top stitching. This project didn't take long at all and I hope it lands with someone that also loves to dream about wizards, dragons, and good winning over evil.

I have no doubt that it will be well-used and loved. I can just see you in your babushka, I am certain that your Mom is smiling over this memory too! Well done, Nane!

I have my fabric picked out for these blankies and I need to get busy.
