Repurposed: Receiving Blankets

I had gotten a box of some hand me down stuff for the baby, and to be honest, I wasn't interested in most of it. I really appreciated the gesture in my heart, but some of the stuff was over worn and kind of stained or discolored. I did pick out a few sleepers that weren't too worn out.

Actually, I picked out stuff that DIDN'T have monkeys on it. Most of this stuff had the vile creatures on it and I just don't like those things. So the stuff that wasn't too worn out that did have the devil animals will go to the donation pile. The rest I thought maybe I could repurpose in some way.

I found a stack of flannel receiving blankets and picked out 4 that had a cute pattern and all coordinated. I cut two of them up into 4" squares because those ones had the most staining and I was able to discard the squares with stains.

Then I made this:

I was really excited to reuse some old stuff that wouldn't have been eligible for donation due to stains. I'm even in the process of using the scraps from this blanket to make yet another blanket. I have the top made already and I think it looks really good. Still churning up some ideas on how to do the backing, but I suspect I'll be ready to share the finished product this evening or at least tomorrow.

I made it out of four flannel receiving blankets ONLY (and thread and a sewing machine obviously!) so it would be a great way to use up some stuff that's just lying around the house.
