New Baby Embroidered Blanket

I currently have 2 great nieces and now have a new great nephew. He's an early bird but doing well. He came about 2.5 - 3 months early but he is doing well and is holding his own.

Since he is in another area of the state, a cake made of diapers was out of the question. So, I turned to the next best thing and embroidered a baby blanket for him. I always debate whether to add the height and weight to the blankets. This time I did since he was such a small weight baby. Here's his blanky. I smudged the last name in the photo.

I also had the die cut machine (Silhouette) cut out a quick baby boy card. This turned out better than I had expected. Only a few areas of the cut out were difficult to remove.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. The baby blanket looks awesome! If you don't mind me asking...what do you use for stabilizers on that type weave? I have a request from a friend to do one and I have never tried machine embroidering on one of those type blankets/throws...Thanks in advance for any suggestions you might have.


  2. Hi Deb, thanks for the question.
    I used Sulky sticky tear away stabilizer. Isn't the easiest to get off the back but I use tweezers. I have also used the Super Solvy stabilizer. I would have emailed my reply but your profile has no reply.
