Mimi’s Receiving Blanket

Adding to my Grandmother’s Hope Chest, I made this sweet flannel receiving blanket last fall after receiving, as a gift, a machine embroidery design and I needed something nice to embroider.

After completing the embroidery, I crocheted a shell edge with crochet cotton.  There is a space for a name to be later embroidered on the design.  As the blanket is going into my Grandmother’s Hope Chest, and is designated for a baby yet to be born, I didn’t put a name or initials on it.
