My awesome Aunt found this adorable airplane printed flannel and snatched it up for us (Ian was beyond excited). It took me awhile to figure out the perfect project for it but I think this knotted flannel blanket was just the thing we were looking for.

The first thing I did was pick out a cheerful yellow flannel to be the back side of the blanket. The yellow matches the little banners on the fabric perfectly (they say “up in the air”). Then I pinned the two pieces (a yard of each) together with the “wrong” sides facing each other. I placed the pins about 4 inches down so that I would have room to make the knots.

Thats it! The whole project only took a couple of hours and it made a soft, warm and completely adorable blanket for the little Rookie. It is easily Ians favorite baby item (though the John Deere socks are a close second) so I imagine this blanket is going to get a lot of use.
