Dylan's Baby Blanket
Pattern description from Alterknits: “This basic blanket and hat set is made unique by embellishing it with fabric paint. The stamped-on polka-dot pattern shown is super-simple. You might also try stamping a favorite nursery rhyme onto the blanket lining. Once the fabric paint is heat-set, both pieces are machine-washable.
