Snuggle Down!

My Mom is going to a baby shower for her friend's new granddaughter (she was born early so she's already here) and asked me to make something for her to gift. I was told that the new mom was a little bit goth and was having a girl. So, I found this awesome jersey cotton fabric and decided to make a swaddler. Apparently babies love to be wrapped up like a burrito and cuddled. I used a suuuper soft fleece for the lining and no-snag Velcro to hold the flaps in their 'swaddle position'. I think it turned out extremely cute and I can't wait to make another. Hope it goes over well at the baby shower this weekend! Here are some pics:

Let me know what you think!
