Thor self-binding baby blanket

So I was a little excited to make this blanket.  When will I ever get the chance to make another Thor anything?
I am learning a lot about embroidery and what looks good and what is only so so.  I used this same monster print  for Marks blanket.  But the backing was an awesome Michael Miller polka dot. I did the embroidery in red because it was one of the dots.  It popped and yet it matched. I loved it. When i made this one I thought to just use red embroidery again because it had looked so nice.  But sadly without the polka dot print it just looks a little off to me.Still love the monsters still available at Joanns.  I think I might have to pick up some more.
