So our soccer team won the over-thirty-Friday-night-beginner’s-league championship last season. Yeah, we won! But what really mean to say it’s not a huge achievement considering there are several leagues every night and we were the beginners and of course, all old. The prize was a bag of 20 free championship T-shirts for the team and somehow we got stuck with the extras. The funny thing is that one guy on our team has worn his championship tee to every game since and says it’s his favorite shirt. He also has a little daughter who’s just a few months old. Do I need any more excuses for a project? I don’t think so!
Behold, the championship T-shirt mini-blanket-slash-burp-rag, as modelled by Oink, our resident pig.
Hey Oink, would you like to show me the back of the blankie?
I’ve never worked with T-shirt material and I’ve never worked with minkee dot fabric so this was a good excuse to use both. Plus, I think it’s sweet that his daughter will now have a little something that matches her daddy. :o)
I used the same instructions as the chenille-backed baby blanket tutorial here.
