My friends were having a baby and are huge Star Wars fans. I found this glow in the dark Star Wars fabric and wanted to make something for the new baby.

I made two receiving/breast feeding blankets. One is just the cotton fabric and a heavier, more draping backing. The other is lined with flannel. I used snowflake and daisy fabrics for the binding to denote which one was for cooler weather and which was for warmer.

I also made two portable changing pads. These are lined with a foam batting for stiffness, durability, and comfort. The backing is a thicker upholstery fabric, almost like carpet. This was to prevent sliding.

The difficult part was the binding. I made sure as I stitched my strips together the words “Star Wars” lined up, which on a diagonal is no small feat.

Since the fabric’s pattern was already segmented I just hand quilted along the grey lines with glow in the dark thread.
