To make my blanket, I used Yarn Bee Soft Secret Yarn in Soft Pink, White, and Mist and an H/5mm hook. Each color block has 9 rows. I stitched 7 blocks of color – starting with pink, then white, mist, pink, mist, white, pink for a total of 63 rows. I crocheted a border of 2 rows of single crochet, although a border is totally optional.
I bought 2 skeins of each color of yarn, but did not use all of it. I had more than enough left over to make these sweet beanies I shared in this post and still have some yarn left over to make more!
This is such a versatile pattern. You can make it in any color combo – or only one color! You can make your color blocks with different numbers of rows. You can also adjust the size by how many rows you make.
It’s also one of those patterns that once you get started, it’s easy to memorize so you can watch your favorite Netflix show and just crochet away. 🙂
Is this not the sweetest little bunny?!? She’s from the Funny Bunny set from Darcie’s Rubber Stamps. I love her cute expression and her fun little birdie friend! She is perfect to welcome a new little girl to the world.
I layered 3 panels of patterned paper to a pink card. Both of the stamped images are attached with foam tape. I finished the card off with 3 pink gems in the bottom right corner and 1 near the sentiment.
Change the colors and sentiment and this would make an adorable baby boy card!
A sweet friend is soon going to have a precious little girl! I made some little hats to help keep her tiny head warm this winter. They vary in size a bit so hopefully she will be able to wear one of them throughout the whole season!
I’ve included a link under each hat to the pattern that I used – and they are all free!
I used Yarn Bee Soft Secret Yarn in Soft Pink, White, and Mist and an H/5mm hook to crochet my hats – of course each pattern has yarn and hook suggestions. Each pattern has instructions for several different sizes – the Cloche Hat and Just My Style Hat go all the way through adult! Great patterns to make Mommy and me hats. 🙂
I used the stamp set to make a birthday bookmark. It measures 2 by 7 inches – the perfect size to mark your place in a favorite book.
To make the bookmark, I cut a piece of white card stock to 2 by 7 inches. I stamped the cake, balloons, and sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto the bookmark. I colored the images with Copic Markers and sponged turquoise ink onto the background. I cut a second piece of white card stock and glued it to the back to cover up the bleed through from the Copic markers. You can also laminate the bookmark to protect it.
Such a fun, cute way to say Happy Birthday to You!
I had this fun Dew Drops Baby Bee Lots of Dots yarn that I picked up on clearance from Hobby Lobby. This particular color way is discontinued, but there are still several others available. It is a bulky (5) weight yarn.
The size of the blanket can be adjusted by changing the length of the beginning chain. The pattern calls for the chain to be in multiples of 3 + 3 more chains. My blanket starting chain was 99 stitches (96 + 3 more), then I followed the pattern as written.
Here’s a close up of the blanket. It’s a little hard to see the pattern due to the type of yarn I used. If you click over to the free pattern here, you can really see how pretty it is in the stripes with blanket yarn.
I crocheted my blanket using an N/10mm hook. I used about 6 skeins (3.5 ounce/110 yards) of Dew Drops Baby Bee Lots of Dots yarn. The finished size of my blanket is about 33-inches by 32-inches.
This is a great pattern if you need a gift in a hurry – or if you want a quick and easy pattern to make blankets for donating.
