Anyways... I got the DVD and was going to just give her that but then I thought about how hard it was for me to find a proper swaddling sheet. You couldn't purchase them in any stores near me and the ones online were VERY nice but no affordable. Not for me anyways. So I decided to make a swaddling sheet to go with the DVD. And then while I was shopping for the fabric I thought that it would be nice to make a matching set... SOOO I decided to make burp clothes to go with it. And THEN I thought wouldn't it be wonderful to make a nice pair of tiny baby booties to go with it!!!!
As usual nothing goes as planned. Because the swaddling blanket is fairly large it took me longer to hem than I thought it would. I went with 42" by 42". You probably think that is huge for a baby blanket but you will have to trust me. A couple weeks after your child is born the only thing those napkin sized receiving blankets will be good for is well a napkin or maybe a changing pad... But you probably already have a changing pad...
