Baby blankets are one of the most rewarding things to make. They are so fast and you can use super cute and cuddly fabric.
I can’t even come up with an exhaustive list of reasons to make these as gifts. SO MANY REASONS!

Family members, bestie friends, teachers and other caregivers could all use the little warm snuggle from these.
