Fleece Baby Blanket

 Hi friends.  As you may know, I have another granddaughter, so I just had to make her a blanket!

I used a remnant I got at JoAnn a while back.  It was an unusual rectangular remnant which would have looked funny, so I ended up cutting it in half meaning it has a seam in the middle and the elephants don't match up there. It's still a rectangle, but the dimesions are more suitable now. For the back, I used some soft gray fleece.

I usually sew on flannel rather than fleece, and fleece is so much thicker that I had to use my Walking Foot (the same type you would use for a multi-layered quilt).  Otherwise, it was too difficult to get all of the fabric to feed under the regular foot.  I tried it.  The walking foot worked much better!

I want to make myself a shirt with this adorable  design from Creative Fabrica.
