Ellie's Lovie

Lately I have been really excited about going into labor and seeing my baby girl after its all said and done. Although I have been really tired, I still feel the need to "nest". The only problem with that is my nursery is finished, her clothes are washed and put in the drawers, and I feel like there's not much else I can do except for read and I haven't been feeling like reading..... I was really into it awhile back and started 3 books and loved them and then the desire to read left me and I am having to choose to pick it back up. Maybe next week? :)

Anyways, I have been wanting Ellie to have a little security blanket like her cousin Will because I think it is SO cute! He has had his since he was a newborn and he still carries it around today at 13+ months. It's a comfort for him and I wanted Ellie to have a little comfort blanket :)
Here's Will with his lovie:

Yesterday I went to the store and picked out a silky fabric and a soft flannel fabric to make Ellie's blanket, I wasnt really sure how to go about making it but I just decided to go for it and try. I bought enough fabric to make 2 so I could have a back up in case hers got lost or ruined, so far I have only made one. I LOVE it! I still need to wash it so it can get soft and not be so wrinkly but I couldn't wait to show it off so here it is :)

It is 14X16 (not sure why I didn't just make it square?)
