Natural Dyed Baby Blanket

I had a great time making this baby blanket for our newest addition to the family. I think he would be considered my husband’s second cousin, but I get really confused when it gets past first cousin! The main fabrics of the blanket are cotton voile dyed with walnuts and flannel dyed with acorns.Image

For the lion I used several scrap pieces (raw silk, silk habotai, and linen). At least two of them were dyed with beech nuts. The patterning on the back piece was done with an iron modifier.Image

Hopefully he’s enjoying it!
