Pattern: Koala mama and baby by Susan B. Anderson
I started this project early 2014 and could have been done with this 2 years earlier, if I hadn’t forgotten which little bit of white I used for the inner ears. I made it my mission to find the right color of white in my messy stash, but just couldn’t figure out which skein it had been. In the end, I decided to change the inner ears to pink and finished it that same day (like eh…3 days ago or something).
I wasn’t a fan of sewing the minky blanket to something else. It kept shifting, even while using a walking foot. Had to re-sew it a couple of times to get it to lay tight, so it wouldn’t sag as Princess Begum’s blanket (to be posted later) did. All the reverse sewing (as in; ripping :() had wrinkled the cotton backing, so I ironed the blanket -minky side down and on cold temperature- but I think I ironed out some of the minky dots?!?
My 15mo old daughter loves this blanket, merely for the fact that the koala has such a prominent nose, haha :). She is really into noses now.
