I have made several baby blankets before, however they have always been themed for baby boys, using blues, white and grey. So when i found out that a friend at work was having a baby girl, i was over the moon to get to create a baby blanket for a girl.
Just before christmas I decided to make a christmas stocking for my dog buddy. I love christmas and wanted him to play a big part in this. I didn't want or need the stocking to be huge, but a size which was big enough for a few treats and toys. The stocking measures 15 inches tall by 5 inches wide.
So for the last month I have been working on a larger project for a christmas present. I love making things for people, and wanted to make something more personal as a present rather than buying just anything for a gift. I came up with this idea after seeing a few inspirations from other crocheter on Facebook. I wanted it to be fairly a large size so it can be used a blanket or throw for a bed. I came up with several different designs such as adding names, however I felt that it took away from the main image.
