My auntie asked me to make a little ribbon blankie to help her with a last-minute baby present she was putting together for her friend, so I made this for her using a leftover bit from my mom’s minky blanket. I added the drawstring bag because it felt too dinky handing just a ribbon blankie over. I had wanted to make her a little stuffed bunny too, but ran out of time.

It’s a good thing that I at least made the extra bag — I keep telling my auntie not to pay me for things she asks me to make because she gives me so many things every time she sees me, but she didn’t listen and snuck $15 in the humongous bag of goodies she gave me when my family met up for bai saan this weekend, AND she also gave Cosmo a whole ton of birthday presents! I only spent $2 on ribbons, and everything else was stuff I already had! Ack!

I had a fantastic mail day! I did let it pile up for two days, but still: I got three fun packages!

First, I received some suuuuuper cute fabric and zippers from Spotted Stone since I won her fall fabric giveaway. Thank you, Krista! I love it all, especially the adorable fruit-and-ladybugs linen blend thingoo!

Next, I got seven half-yards of fabric that I ordered from Drygoods Design. Can you believe I got all of this for only $18? You can, too — Keli’s running a coupon for 30% off pink fabric through October with the coupon code PINK30, plus free shipping through the end of the year. 🙂

Finally, some felt I ordered for Mr. Yazoo’s Christmas present arrived. It’s from Sweet Emma Jean’s shop, and she has a 10% off coupon through October. I love buying stuff on sale!

Last week, I thought Mr. Yazoo had asked me to make a baby quilt for his co-worker, which I was totally willing to do but just a little worried about since I also wanted to make two more quilts (that I haven’t started yet) for Christmas presents. I was relieved when I found out that he had meant a ribbon blankie. Whew! And… done!
