I've got a quick, simple project to share with you today. I made this about three weeks before my baby was born. So whereas it was quick- sitting on the ground cutting out fabric is never easy at 8 1/2 months pregnancy.
But I had to have it for my December baby.
I thought about making a tutorial for it but it was so simple it doesn't really need one. Plus a quick google search will bring up hundreds.
I did decide to with the simple velcro method and faux button on top-- which I think is cute.
The other fun thing about this canopy is I made it using up all fabric scraps I already had on hand.
I had bought the umbrella fabric from JoAnns intending to make another small blanket out of it, but when I decided to turn it into a canopy I realized I didn't have enough material.
So I turned to my scraps. I have all these darling minky scraps left over from all the big blankets I make for my babies. I love looking at this canopy now and seeing big brother's blanket, little brother's blanket, sister's and now babies extra blanket scraps.
It's so nice to have I wish I would have made it for baby # 1 and not baby # 4.
