Okay so maybe it is becoming 'a thing' as I got asked to make another baby blanket from a bridesmaid dress and sash. So excited about this one! The black bridesmaid dress and pink sash just lent itself perfectly to the white and black damask pattern by Riley Blake and fuchsia bubble dot minky by Shannon Fabrics.
It was so much fun pairing up the rest of the coordinating prints. I've never imagined myself as a pink, black and white girl for baby gear but I am seriously crushing on this blanket palette.
Making the blanket from the dress is pretty simple: Cut dress apart to get the maximum skirt area and then cut everything into squares. Working with the rayon/nylon/silk combo is a little more tricky but totally doable. And then just make as a normal patchwork.
The finish size is about 30x35 as I do 5 inch squares to keep everything simple in my head. The fuschia minky matched the pink sash perfectly but I really love how the pearl bracelet fabric isn't as bright but still looks so wonderful!
Okay that was probably picture overload but I just can't help myself :) Hope everyone has a wonderful week! and if interested here are the past bridesmaid dress baby blankets no. 1 and no. 2
