I love reading my best friend’s blog and have enjoyed seeing and hearing about her “10 Minute Craft Dash” that she started a while back. I decided I’d try to do it and so here you go, my first entry!

The colors were (excuse my potentially inaccurate crafting color descriptions) slate, moss and light pink. I love these colors, but everyone who knows anything about me knows that I’m incredibly indecisive.

I don’t make cards very often (OK, really at all) so my entry isn’t a card, but rather a cute little “taggie” security blanket. I’m the proud auntie of a hilarious little girl (16 months) and will soon have twins nieces/nephews added to the mix (coming in August), so I love sewing things for them. Since I don’t know if the twins are boys or girls yet, I’ll just keep this on hand … and if they’re boys, I’m sure I’ll find someone to give this to!

The blanket measures roughly 13″ x 13″.

I have to say, this is the quickest that I’ve ever sewn something start-to-finish … I started the clock and had to cut all the ribbon, fabric and backing and then get sewing! I misjudged how much fabric I had, so I had to do stripes of the grey background instead of the two-piece diagonal triangles I had planned. I also originally planned to do three ribbons on each side, but with the time constraints, I settled for ribbons on just two sides. I think it turned out pretty well anyway. I didn’t look at the clock when I was sewing so I was hoping I was still within the time limit!

The time it took me:
