Scrap-Happy Pink & Green DIY Blanket Personalization

Well, since Li’l Bro got a personalized rest towel for school…

…And since I made the leftovers of the blanket-turned-rest-“towel” into a mini one for home…

…and since he GAVE the mini one to his little sis when he was done with the big one and brought it home from school…

…It was time for more fabric personalization!!  So sis chose six pieces of fabric from my scrap pile and I set to work freehand cutting out the letters of her name. [I cut out the letters using pinking shears to help prevent too much fraying… I like a little bit of a rough edge, though, so I didn’t worry about my zig-zag stitch being so tight that it sealed the edges.]

I used a quick spritz of spray glue on the back of each letter to hold them down while I sewed them on, so there was no need to even pin!

A quick zig-zag stitch around the perimeter of each letter and–voila!

Couldn’t have been simpler and took almost no time at all.

AND–bonus!!–it is the perfect width to lay across the end of her bed. So now I can relish the cuteness on a daily basis. Wheeeeeee!

So what ARE you waiting for?! Go grab some fabric and get to cuttin’!!
