Birthday Blanket

A couple months ago, I picked up this lovely bit of fleece from a fabric auction. 🙂

When I first saw the pattern I was like “Eww… fishing.” Then lightbulb~! My brothers are in scouts and had been learning how to fly-fish at the time so I decided to turn it into a blanket for the one with the closest birthday. 🙂

So once again I wrangled the serger – which was much easier than when I had first used it on my dad’s blanket. 🙂

Since I decided to do rounded corners, Nina had to help tug me the fabric into submission. ^^;

However I felt more and more like a pro with the straight edges. 🙂

When I finished serging, Nina threaded the remaining tail into a needle and had me weave the end in.
