Baby Receiving Blanket Using Cricut

Hey everyone!  (Don't forget to register for the blog candy on the post above) I found this awesome sewing site:  http://sewmuchado.blogspot.com/2009/05/ric-rac-receiving-blanket-tutorial.html and I followed the directions to make this receiving blanket.  The above picture is the blanket hanging up so you could see the whole thing.  I used Cricut Craft Room and the Hoot and Hollar cartridge for the owl applique piece on the blanket.  I sized it as large as I could and then I adhered Heat n bond to the back of the fabric.  Then I placed it on my mat,fabric side down.  I used the multi cut function and had it cut 3 times.  Then I ironed it on the blanket and used an applique stitch to go around it. 
Here is a close up of the face.  I used a scallop circle from nestabilities to do the eyes and the buttons are Stampin' Up.  The nose I cut free hand. 
Here are some close up pics of the edging on the blanket:

All the fabric and ric rac came from Jo Ann's.  Thanks for stopping by today and don't forget that I am giving away blog candy on the post above. 
Have a great day!
