Baby Blankets..

As I was folding Ellie's blanket up I thought about ALL the baby blankets Ive crocheted and thought I would share a pic of Each one with you .. Each one is my own design. one titled Maggie's blanket i used a idea i got from Lion's Brand yarn and posted that pattern HERE.. but the others are my OWN fly by the seat of my pants designs. I have the wrote down SOMEWHERE and they are copyrighted..I hope you enjoy them..

First there was Gus's

Then Jackson's

Then Riley's

 Those two together

Then Maggie's

Then Ellie's

christmas stockings..

Well last year I made my son , daughter and nephew crocheted Christmas Stockings, This year I made one for our new nephew and am really looking forward to making sweet baby Ellie one next year.. Below are pics of the one's ive made..Miah's is red, Gus's is Green , Colton's is  "john deer" tractor  I found that pattern HERE. and Riley's is multi colored.. other than the tractor they are all my own patterns i made up as i went along.. I crocheted them flat in a t-shape then whip stitched together .. very easy and Riley's was fast. I used a size P hook and 3 strands of yarn.. it only took my about 30 mins all together.. I hope you enjoy them.
