For the Love - Auction 3

Today is our third "For the Love" auction.  (If you need a refresher, you can read the whole explanation HERE.)  In short, we're auctioning off a beautiful item each Monday of the summer from a talented blogger.  The proceeds will go to a great cause and you'll find some new blogs to follow along the way.

(You can read about our cause right HERE if you haven't seen the post yet.  I think you'll fall in love with Owen just like I did.)

Last week's auction was won by Jami!  You'll be hearing from me shortly, Jami.  Thanks!

Today's auction item comes from Skyler at Awaiting Ada.

Skyler blogs about sewing, baking, crafting, and more.  Her sewing skills are excellent and she even has a giant list of things she's made with just a fat quarter HERE.  She loves Diet Coke, used to play in a ska band, and likes playing board games.  Skyler has generously donated this beautiful baby blanket......

 .....and matching tag blanket.

This blanket set includes a 30"x30" ruffled blanket (not including the ruffle) and a 10"x15" tag blanket (not including the tags). I've used a gender neutral cotton print in turquoise and brown so it's perfect for a baby girl or boy. The minky is a brown rosette minky and is super soft and cuddly. Everything is machine wash and dry, Yay! The ruffle blanket is large enough to swaddle your little one in it and to cover a car seat. The tag blanket is a great sensory toy that will fascinate your baby (and doubles as a burp cloth!).

Want to make your own?  You can find Skyler's tutorial HERE.  

Want to see what else Skyler is up to?  Check out this clever puff pin cushion and scrap bag HERE.

Or look at this adorable bubble quilt HERE.

Now, if you'd like to bid on the blanket and matching tag blanket you may do so in the comment section.  Please make sure I have a way to contact you, in case you win the auction.  (You can also comment without bidding, if you just want to leave a regular comment.)

The bidding will be open until next Monday.  Thank you, Skyler, for donating your adorable creation.

Thanks for reading.
