I am expecting two grandsons in just a few weeks. One will be here at the end of this month and one will be here in June. I have been busily crocheting and sewing away trying to get everything ready. I can happily say that I am now done:). Yea!!
I am very pleased with how the afghan turned out. (One family already has a blessing afghan) The cute little holes are just perfect for little fingers to poke through.
I didn’t have a pattern. I just alternated rows of 1 row dc and and 1 row 3dc in same st, skip 2 sc,repeat. It was very fast. After the Tunisian blankets, I was happy for fast:)
I also tackled two boy blessing outfits. Oh my, oh my, they turned out cute! I searched online for a ready made outfit that I liked , but I couldn’t find one. So I searched for patterns. It took hours, but I finally found a vintage pattern that looked just right.
It arrived in a tattered envelope, but the pattern was all intact, Butterick 5758. I redesigned it a little by sewing the shorts and shirt together to eliminate gaps and bulk at the waist. Isn’t it ADORABLE?!
Sewing from a vintage pattern was a little tricky because the instructions were not as clear as modern patterns, but it was still a fun adventure:). I’m glad I did it..
