The first thing I said when my son in law called me this morning was - Yeay now I'm going to crochet a lot of baby stuff ! Luckily I had some practice with this as I made a few baby thingies during the past year
A good friend asked me to make a blankie for a single mommy and this is what I did. It had to be pink & white - so I decided to use granny squares and I made each block different
I did not follow a specific pattern- just crocheted along
I made a butterfly that I sewed into the middle of one block
one with a flower in the middle
and with hearts
And this was the final product!
Great - I still have a few projects to finish before I can start with stuff for the baby!
A day of Firsts. Wow , its the 1st of January and I created my first Blog and my first craft project for the year. This morning I made a quick gift for my daughter after getting a fabulous idea last night while spending the evening with family! A glass jar with bath salts.... and this is how: I picked some lavender flowers, put them in a clean glass jar (it was a pickle jar) and filled it with a bag of coarse sea salt.
Then I decided to decorate it. For the bottle top - I made a crochet flower with satin ribbon and attached a huge button in the middle. This was glued to the bottle top.
I have lots and lots of buttons that I wanted to put to use and I glued them all over the bottle
After just an hour or so the salt already had the lavender smell! Easy , low cost - I had a bag of salt in the kitchen and always have my craft supplies ready ! And my daughter will be having a wonderful aromatic bath tonight! That's it! till later when I will share my next craft adventure.
