I think I must be getting braver: I actually gave a handmade present at a wedding this weekend. Those of you who have slowly ventured into craftiness can probably understand the self-doubt it can usher in. Is it too crazy? Will it fall apart? Will they scratch their heads and wonder aloud, "What is this?" For now I have put that all aside and am hoping that this lovely couple enjoy their picnic blanket as much as we have enjoyed ours. And who knows? Maybe one day they will be so lucky to have two sweet pairs of tiny bare feet running all over theirs as well.
I didn't get a great shot of it, but I'm secretly in love with the showgirl fabric in the corners (picked up at the old thrift store along with the rest of the fabric). I really do love the tutorial this comes from: simple, straightforward, and just perfect for spring.
