Baby Gators Need To Snuggle......

......so I made something new for them, even though I'm not a Gator......because I try to be ♥sweet♥ and thoughtful like that! ; )

This very ♥Sweet♥ little rag quilt is perfect for the baby destined to become a little Gator!! You're never too young to start showing off your team spirit....even if your colors ARE orange & blue! ; )

It features nine three-piece squares ~ 2 focal prints, a flannel layer in the center and minky dot on the back. Each square except the center embroidered square has been sewn with the traditional "X" to achieve the quilted effect. Center minky square has been embroidered with the phrase, "It's Good To Be A Gator Girl. I can also do a name or inital monogram if desired.

All exposed seams have been hand clipped, and the quilt has been washed once in mild, non-toxic detergent to initiate the a ragged and frayed, Shabby-Chic look that we all love.

Approximate measurements are 18" x 18", which is the perfect size for a little one's special "Lovey" or security blanket (won't drag on the ground!), or even to use as a changing pad in an emergency. :)

These little "Loveys" have been so popular, and are so fun to make....even for teams that I may or may not cheer for....and I even have coordinating burp cloths in the works!  I have to admit it IS cute & living in Gator country, I felt the pressure to get this one out first....... but rest assured, a red and black version will be coming soon!! =)

It's Crafty Tuesday, and I'm linking up with all my Crafty Friends! =)
