Here are a couple of cards I made in a class that are perfect for Thanksgiving weekend. One is for Scott t take to his family and the other is for me to take to my hostess.
Here are two cards for kids birthdays that are coming up in a few weeks, I really like how they turned out.
Have a great Thanksgiving Weekend everyone and don’t eat too much turkey!
On Saturday I took a class called Stamp Camp in Markham. It was my second time going and I had lots of fun. We made 10 cards and lunch was included. The next Stamp camp is in January 2018 if you’re interested in joining us go to the web site listed below.
Scott has another co-worker who is having a baby and he wanted me to make a blanket that would represent them. Apparently the soon to be parents are Gothic and really into skulls so I found this pattern https://www.craftsy.com/crocheting/patterns/skully-square-pattern/197857 and designed a blanket from that.
I made 36 skull rectangles which each took about 45 minutes to make each one. I attached each rectangle using one of the techniques Mikey shows in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F31ActsLT9Q.Then I added a white trim (would have preferred pink but I ran out of it) then the black wavy trim which I found here https://mycrafts.com/diy/learn-to-crochet-with-girlybunches-crochet-wave-fan-edging-tutorial/ that took about 3 or 4 hours ……I think.
The yarn I used was called Colourwheel 95 yrd each and it was on clearance and very soft. The blanket took 9 pink 855 yrd, 5 black 475 yrd and 6 white 570 yrd however on the trim I used 1 white 95 yrds and 3 black 285 yrds.
The final measurements is Height 5” and Width 3.75”.
I had a lot of fun making this blanket and its really cozy feeling I hope they enough it.
I attended my nieces christening this weekend and I made her this art piece for her wall with her name in pink and buttons for the first letter. I think it’s cute what do you think?
I made a total of 2 pink religious cards and 2 blue religious cards with the option of adding Christening or Baptism when I officially need the card. What do you think?
My brother has a friend who just had a little girl and asked me to make a blanket for them as a gift. I found this free pattern called Zig Zag Crochet Baby Blanket from http://austeretwist.blogspot.ca/2017/04/zig-zag-crochet-baby-blanket-free.html?m=1 however I CH 147+15 to make it a bit wider with a total of 60 rows. I decided to do a different boarder and found this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68GcXFGPddc&t=8s it measures out to 41” x 51”
I used Loops and Thread Snuggle Wuggly yarn large ball of 1263 yds but had to get a smaller ball 446 yds because I did not have quite enough left for the board. If I make this blanket again I would do an additions 10 rows to use more of the rows up.
So I borrowed a stamp set from a friend called Baby Bear from Stampin Up. I needed 2 baby cards for new expecting parents, but I decided while I had the stamp set I would make extra for future needs. Therefore I made 4 New Baby Girl Cards, 4 New Baby Boy Cards, 4 New Neutral Baby Card (for parents who want to be surprised at delivery time), 4 Wedding/Anniversary Cards and 4 Christmas cards.
They are so cute!
