Call it what you will… binky, boppie, lovey… every baby needs a good old-fashioned security blanket. Regardless of the season, it’s so nice to have a little something to snuggle! So for summer, we’ve whipped up a new lightweight version of our crochet-edged Flannel Receiving Blankets.
Nani Iro’s newest line of airy flannels are just right for cozy, warm weather receiving blankets. These whimsical prints also offer a good dose of sophistication, perfect for mom and baby! Edged in Koigu’s fingering weight Premium Merino, these cuddly keepsakes can be machine washed time and time again for long-loving use.
Between Koigu’s sharp colors (2229 and 1051 used here!) and Nani Iro’s unique patterns, the combinations are endless. For even more options, explore our other flannels here, and for step-by-step instructions, please visit our Flannel Receiving Blankets project journal, right here! Enjoy! -Laura
