I bought a package of 4 receiving blankets from Carters and made 2 30" X 40" blankets. This is a nice size for new babies. This worked well and adds more optiions for you to consider.

Buy burp cloths made by Gerber - they're made like a cloth diaper so are double in the middle - have them hemstitched around, crochet an edge and have a lovely, very practical burp cloth! You can order one on my website and tell me whether you would like it hemstitched all the way around or just on the ends. You can also buy them at Walmart or online and send them to me to be hemstitched.

I tried a new yarn to edge my latest baby blanket for my neice - Cascade Pluscious yarn. It is so soft and has a chenille feel and look to it. It's easy to use and works up quickly. Just single crochet in each hole, or every other hole, or whatever you feel looks good.

It's been a fun summer and fall with my hemstitching. I've had a couple of people bring me minky to hemstitch for baby blankets. My machine managed to sew on this fabric. Quite a feat for my 85 year old machine! I also had someone from Alabama send me lovely Beatrix Potter fabric to make into a bably blanket.
