Pipsqueak has a friend named Diego. Diego came running to us one afternoon at the bus stop, "My baby brother is here! My baby brother is here!" Pipsqueak and I were very excited and asked the new big brother all about his baby!
"What is his name?"
Pipsqueak and I gushed all over Diego for his vast and incredible knowledge of Alejandro and all things baby.
Alejandro was born 4 weeks early, though. I wasn't ready for Alejandro. I quickly went home and frantically cut strips, sewed strips together and fringed the strips. To make this. For the new baby, Alejandro.
This is loosely based on Fringe Frenzy by Little Red Hen Designs (loosely based because I still have that very bad habit of never reading patterns or instructions). I used baby boy flannels. Here is the back of the blanket.
"The baby's name is Thomas. Diego just REALLY wanted an Alejandro."
