The baby blanket started out as a set of valances at the Iron Mt. Goodwill store. They were re-purposed with new fabric plaid squares and bordered with the same plaid ruffle. Too cute for my new grand daughter.
There is a story that goes with the blanket. The top fabric is re-purposed sweat wear like the dozen or so prior college graduation blankets.
The day I went on the hunt for the purple and white school colored sweat shirt it took 6 stops to find 1, [yes ONE] UW Whitewater sweatshirt in grey, white and baby pink. I am so glad the graduate was female.
(Notice how skillfully I extended the fabric by piecing the shorter pieces? Yep... I am sneaky when it comes to designs)
