Receiving Blanket

Something else that I love to make and I normally have one or two going whether I need them for gifts or not are receiving blankets.  I like to have a couple completed and put away for gifts.  I used these when my daughter was a baby and they are my go to shower gift.  It is a simple yard of flannel that I turn under twice by hand and simply stitch down(that stitching is removed later) and then I crochet around the edge with DMC Yarn.  Here is a sneak peek, I am working on the tutorial….Stay tuned!





Enjoy your day!

I guess I am on a pillow kick.  Yesterday it was a pillow for your phone, today it is a case for your pillow.  I am working on Easter gifts and I love to make and give pillowcases.  I picked these cute fabrics up at Joann’s and I love how they turned out.  I bought the end of the bolt of the top piece and I wanted to make 8 pillowcases as I like to give them as sets so I made the top piece smaller than I normally would so that I had enough to do all eight.  I did not buy enough of the purple to do all eight as it was quite expensive.  I decided I would look around at different stores for more fabric that was similar.  This one I am working on a tutorial also.  Happy Tuesday!
