A gift for a friend

 

I recently shared a sneak peak picture of a baby blanket that I am crocheting for a friend. 

It’s coming along very slowly as I have been busy at the sewing machine.  Originally I was going to back this blanket with this cute fabric, Robert Kaufmann Fruit Basket, I picked up but as this is the first time I have crocheted the basket weave stitch, I didn’t realise how heavy it would turn out.

So I have decided that I am going to use this fabric to edge the blanket like you would when you are binding a quilted blanket.

Bub is not due till later in the year so hopefully I will be finished in time.  Stay Tuned!!

I am a stay at home mother of 2 beautiful girls and 1 handsome little man. I first started my blog www.eatcraftsow.blogspot.com as a place that I could share my love of sewing, anything crafty, cooking and working in my vegetable garden. I have always enjoyed making handmade gifts for family and friends and just before Christmas 2010 I started drafting designs for items that I wanted to make for myself for when my little man came into the world. With a little bit of convincing from my family and friends I decided to make and sell these items.
