Yesterday I had an idea pop into my head in the early morning. I decided that for Christmas this year I am going to make the girls a blanket for their baby dolls. Then I decided to make the boy one for McDonald's. So now I am working on 3 adorable sized doll/stuffed animal blankets for Christmas. They are so fun. I am using the not so soft yarn for theirs.
There are several reasons for that. The first being is that it is cheaper. But the main reason is that it holds up better. You can wash it over and over again. So they will be super durable.
You can see in the pic that I have started on the boys. Those little squares of blue, green and brown happiness. You can also see my granny square blanket. I took a break from it for a while but now I am back and loving it once again. There is a lot of hooky happiness going on in my little part of the world. I work on my projects before bed each night while hubby is playing his game. I miss scrapping and know that I will eventually get back to it but right now my heart belongs to my crochet hook. There are lots of Christmas presents coming out of our home this year that will be hand made ( as long as time allows it).
Are you planning on making any gifts this year?
