Easy Knit-ty Receiving Blanket Tutorial & Giveaway

Aren’t I clever, with the ‘knit-ty‘ play on words.

Okay, really I’m feeling quite clever with all the HTML, bloggity blog, ram-a-lamb-a-ding dong jargon I’ve been reading through and trying to decipher as my six year old talks to me a hundred miles per hour. Phew, how’s that for a run on sentence. But I’ve done it! I’ve got a little line of tabs of there that is making me oh so happy folks. Now go ahead and click … except those last two … I’m still working on them :).

So before I got knee deep in a world I’m not sure I should be a part of (the techie world that is) … I got to sew up a sweet little tutorial. Jody (owner, blogger & mama) of the Fabric Shoppe and Everyday Beautiful asked me if I would create a tutorial for an easy (i.e. beginner friendly) tutorial using the fabulous new line of knit by Michael Miller (specifically Patty Young’s line :D).

Uhm, I thought about it for two seconds and said, “yes, yes, pick me.”

Here’s a little look at the finished project …

Pop on over to Everyday Beautiful to get the full tutorial … OR just follow the cute new tab up there for ‘Reviews & Tutorials” and you’ll find the link too. Hurray … success!!


Maybe you’re not in the mood to tackle this project quite yet … perhaps your ‘want to sew’ list is a thousand miles long like mine … or heck, you just think it would be fun to win something?!?

Well I’m happy to be giving away the original blanket created for this tutorial AND the Fabric Shoppe is giving away your choice of 1 yard of knit fabric so you can make your own.

That’s like having your cake and eating it too!!

Enter to win, one comment for each chance::

I’ll pick a winner on Sunday, August 8th … when I feel like it … using Mr. Random. org.

Happy Creating!
