A friend is having her baby soon. I love making something for the babies, but my skills with needle and thread are quite limited, so I stick to little blankets. Thank goodness for Google! When I get stuck, the answer is usually easy to find!
This time I learned how to do the corners on bias binding to add some colour to the blankets (http://www.isew.co.uk/sewing_techniques/bias_binding-c-00027.htm)
