Deer Baby Blanket – A Festive Blanket For Your Little One
The success of the sheep version of this 3 in 1 blanket made me think there is a need for more designs and as we are in the middle of the festive season, a woodland deer felt like the natural choice.
What a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative deer toy or decoration for the nursery.
This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the armchair.
Sew on a red nose instead of the brown one to turn your woodland deer into a festive one.
I chose hexagons for this blanket simply because I wanted the deer to have spots on its back, just like a real one would, some smaller, some larger, randomly placed (or not!).
I have made quite a few designs since I posted this one, all suitable for different nursery themes, from woodland animals to farm ones, and more exotic ones like the dino or unicorn baby blankets.
