self binding blanket...

I just finished this "tactile temptation" baby blanket for my new baby nephew--it's the first time I've made a blanket using the "self-binding" method.  It was super simple!  The blanket is made with soft corduroy, minky, flannel and cotton.  I've added "tabbies" made from ribbon, felted wool balls, and ric-rac that is snipped so that it will fray.  It's not perfect, but alright for a first attempt!  I like the concept, and I think I'll experiment with the pattern until I come up with something that I love.  Then I'll post it if anyone is interested!
