Bubbles Baby Blanket »
Type of item: Functional
What was your inspiration?
The pattern by Deneen St Amour called Bubbles Baby Blanket is the one I used. It can be found by cliking on the pattern name under the main photo or you can go to http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bubbles-baby-blanket. The outcome will depend upon the yarn and tension. I used 100% acrylic (two strands). The border is two rows of the same stitch but done in blue.
What are you most proud of?
This is the first project with appliques I had done.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This was quick and easy to do. A thick blanket that I hope is not too heavy for the baby. I did 2 rows of the pattern as a border and it definetly looks better using a different colour, which I was able to add once I knew the new arrival is a boy.
The pattern for the applique is from Coats and Clark (www.coatsandclark.com) pattern number WR1667 Bird and Flower Appliques which is found under "Crochet" and "Accessories". I put a applique in each corner and really happy with how it turned out.
