i found this cute material at the market; it's actually a scarf that the women here wear on their heads; but i really liked the pattern and the fact that it was super soft and silky, so i decided to make a blanket for miss. olivia. i had some other fabric stashed at home that i had picked up at the thrift store for like $2.00. so the backing is this really soft suede like material. the whole thing probably took an hour to make (cutting, pinning, sewing, etc) i still would like to make a border, since my stitching still isn't the best, but overall i'm happy, and i think she'll love it!
here's a picture with the corner folded over so you can see the backing:
