It has become the preferred choice of moms for swaddling those sweet new babies. Embrace Double Gauze by Shannon Fabrics is favored for it's gentle hand. This light-as-a-feather, 100% cotton fabric insulates yet breathes. It has a bit of "give" that lends perfectly to stay-snug swaddling. It grows softer with every wash - - and oh, how well it washes! We all know how important that is with little ones! The over-all feel is soothing and natural. With a variety of prints and colors (even some metallic), they fit into any style nursery. When handling sweet, soft baby goods, how often have you said, "Why don't they make this for grown-ups?!" My thoughts exactly. Stop in the shop and take a look at the Trunk Show of Embrace Double Gauze projects! You'll find ideas for babies, children and grown-ups alike all made from the softest gauze. If, like me, you're a bit to big to swaddle, how about a pair of pajama pants or a light-weight top? The drapability of gauze makes for darling (and cool!) summer skirts. We love the way it feels as a quilt backing, especially when it's paired with our super soft bamboo batting. And of course, it makes the quickest, easiest receiving blankets for a shower gift. It comes 48" wide so 1 1/3 yards makes a generous square receiving blanket. Add a bias tape with crocheted edging to finish the edge in a flash! Come in and see all of these ideas hanging in our classroom. On each sample you'll find a tag with information on pattern downloads like the one found here for an adorable ruffled edge blanket! Stop in for some inspiration and see what new arrivals we have in store!
