As most of you know by now, Rockerbye Destash Fabrics has grown fast and furious!  About two years ago today Amber branched out from her main business Rockerbye Baby (Rock and Roll Baby apparel) and started Rockerbye Destash that we have all become addicted to.  The first custom prints she ran were Wilderness, Dragons, and Mermaids which are all of course still favorites!  Obviously, those brought people banging down the doors for more.  ( She was actually my first custom fabric purchase ever.  I blame her for where I am now ;))   12.5k people later Rockerbye Destash has become so much...

Baby Blanket, DIY, Gauze, Gauze Blanket, Satin Binding, Satin Bound Blanket, Sewing -

Real talk- I never thought I'd actually use Satin binding on a blanket because, quite frankly, that sounds worse than going to the dentist.   Then my littlest, Emerson, attached to a tiny lovey one he had.   So of course with all of Ambers amazing prints on double gauze, I knew it had to be done.  To my very happy surprise, it's actually way easier than I thought!!
