Today I'd like to share with you a baby card and a blanket that I made.
For the card, I dug through my stash looking for just the right papers, and these two patterned ones seemed to be just perfect. Then I added a little watch of feather paper and some lace ribbon.
I looked through my stamps, and this one I thought was perfect for the card.
Then it was still missing something and I found this cute little dress in my chipboard collection.
I wanted to make a baby blanket as well for my friend, and wanted also to try a new pattern.
I found this pattern called the Six Day Kid Blanket online HERE.
At the back of the pattern pdf, there is a chart to modify the size, and so I made mine smaller. Very simple and fun to work with.
I love to look at yarn in the store, and it's even more fun when it means I can buy some to bring home to work with. :)
I chose some yarn from the Bernat Softee baby collection. Pink, Antique White, and Flannel.
Then it needed a brighter colour so I added into the mix the Happy (pink) from Red Heart Baby Hugs collection.
It took me a bit but I got it finished, and I put an edging of a couple rows of single crochet around the outside to finish it off. You can see it in the bottom of the picture.
Well, now it's all tucked away for when I see my friend.
I love doing these little simple things for others... just so they know that I care.
Love and Prayers,
