    About

    I know I'm supposed to be doing a project just for me this month, and I tried working on my beautiful wool leggings. But this is much more fun. I love putting the elements of a project like this together. I used the lovely heart motif as a pocket on a simple 15" x 15" shell blanket and I'm using my basic doll pattern to a create a pink bunny to be placed in the pocket. The design and execution of this project consumed my attention and I'm really enjoying how it's turning out. It will be donated to the police department upon completion. My basic doll pattern is now available on Etsy!

    Measurements

    Notes: The heart came out slightly larger than the pattern by using the Bernat, its a little bulkier than Peaches & Crème cotton yarn & Lily Sugar ‘n Cream cotton. It was perfect as a pocket.

        :) There isn't a pattern for this blanket. I used a very basic shell stitch and made it 15"x15". Then I added the Granny Heart Coaster as a pocket in the center and made a bunny from my basic doll pattern to put in the pocket. Basic Doll Pattern link below.
