Almost 14 years ago I made my first baby blanket when I was expecting my oldest daughter. I used the same pattern to make similar blankets for my two boys. This summer I revisited the favorite blanket pattern, but added some of my own little tweaks to it.. I created a fun border and used one of my favorite new yarns to give it an extra soft and warm feel. I'm loving the way it turned out!

It was a hot weekend here....too hot to work on the blanket I'm currently playing around with. So I played around a little bit and made up some more Tooth Fairy pillows. The friendly little turtle and a simple white tooth. The white tooth pillow could be jazzed up in a lot of different ways - color, changing the crown to a bow, adding some ribbon, a tutu could even be added to the bottom! So many possibilities!

It has been awhile since I have made a full sized blanket. Well, correction, it has been awhile since I have FINISHED a full sized blanket. I do have 3 blankets I am working on as personal projects for myself, but I keep putting them on the back burner of my to-do list. However, I did finish this large throw recently. It is an original design, which was somewhat of a new adventure for me. While I have adapted designs before, this was my first truly original creation. It was a lot of fun to design from start to finish. There are so many fun ways that I could change this up. I think I may need to add one to my to-do list for myself! Made with Bernat Blanket Yarn, this has a super soft feel to it.
Earlier this week my 6 year old excitedly announced that he had his very first wiggly tooth. Of course, I saw this as an opportunity and offered to make him his very own tooth fairy pillow. He was not at all impressed with the white tooth shaped pillow I had shown him. After seeing a picture he decided he NEEDED to have the dragon Toothless from the movie How to Train Your Dragon because, as he puts it "Get it Mom? TOOTH....LESS!" So after some playing around, this is what we came up with - a tooth shaped pillow that somewhat resembles his favorite dragon.

These last few months have kept me busy with a variety of different projects, ranging from a summer bag, a doll blanket, and a baby blanket that has quickly become one of my favorites. I even had the chance to make a sweet newborn mermaid tail, complete with headband. And if your littlest bundle is your little princess, I have a crown for her too. Here are just a few of my latest projects.
