Upcycled Cashmere Baby Blanket


I’m an aunt again! I have a new baby nephew!  I needed to make him a gift!cashmere 2I scored some deals on a few cashmere sweaters at the thrift shop a while back and tucked them away until I had enough to make a baby quilt.  I ordered a few more cashmere up cycle pieces on etsy and then went to work constructing my blanket.

After I finished the quilt top, I headed to the fabric store looking for the perfect backing.  I think I pictured something baby blanket soft, but ended up being drawn to this sweatshirt fabric.  I think it is a cool mix with the cashmere top, sweatshirt back and cashmere yarn ties.  I hope he likes it for the 2 seconds he is small enough to.
