Handmade baby blankets are much more than just a charming gift. They are a tangible expression of your love for the new mom and her family as well as a direct outlet for your creative juices!
Making baby blankets is the perfect hobby! When I was in junior high school and began knitting and crocheting and sewing, I wanted easy projects that would help me improve my skills, not take too long, and result in a pleasing, useful product. Back then, I didn't know anyone with babies, so baby blankets were not on my radar. But I have since found that making baby blankets accomplishes all of these requisites and is quite a fulfilling and refreshing undertaking.
