Do you have a baby shower to go to or are you expecting and you want something special to give the new baby? A baby blanket is a great gift idea for any infant. They keep babies warm and happy and can become a keepsake they can keep forever.
What types of baby blankets can you get? One choice is to make a baby blanket. You can make a blanket either by crocheting or knitting a blanket or by sewing a blanket such as by quilting it. If you want to personalize a simple blanket, you can even use a simple fleece material and just sew on a border.
Crocheting baby blankets is a popular way to make a great baby blanket. You can use any kind of yarn of many colors, but the most popular for baby blankets are softer yarns and colors. You can even make the ultimate soft quality blanket by using cashmere yarn. There are so many different options with yarn you have to experiment for yourself.
If you are better with a needle, you can quilt a blanket. Quilting is a little bit more complicated, unless you’ve done it before and are good at it. You can shoot for fleece cloth and make soft blankets or regular fabric and go for crazy colors and patterns. If you aren’t good at quilting, you can even just take an ordinary blanket and embroider it yourself with the baby’s name or a personal message.
If you aren’t a crafty person, don’t worry about it. Buying a beautiful baby blanket can be just as special. No one says you have to spend a lot of money for something to be from the heart. The same goes for crafts. Not everyone is artistic and crafty. If you don’t have to knack for crafts, use your talent of choosing a beautiful blanket. Think about it, wouldn’t you rather have your child get a beautiful blanket that they purchased than a 5 inch lopsided crocheted blanket?
However you choose to get your blanket, make sure it is perfect for the baby you are making or buying it for. Personalize it with their name or a message if you can. Make sure the colors fit the baby and his room. You can even get a blanket and wrap it in a stuffed animal or get a blanket set that comes with one. Most of all, make sure the blanket it soft, warm, and perfect for the newborn baby!
