I am hosting a baby shower tonight for a new mom at church who had a precious baby boy last month and I just had to try out this tutorial for a changing mat I found here. I did change it up a bit by adding binding to the edging rather then finishing out the way it stated and the end result is fabulous. I also made a couple coordinating burp cloths to go with it.
Well this seems to be my year for doing afghans. With the crazy schedule I have going this year with working and the kids school schedules, afghans are so portable. I just completed another and I LOVE it. I do not recall what book I copied the pattern from but I think it is my new favorite. It was unbelievably fast (less then a week start to finish) and so simple. A great combo if you ask me. Even better, it looks good and is snuggly warm for curling up on the couch and watching a movie or reading a book.
