    WIP Star Wars R2D2 Pixel Blanket

    So the son asked me to make him a Star Wars Blanket! So I decided to have a try at making a pixel art blanket! Making small granny squares (2 rows in each) and joining them as I go. I will add to the thread as I go! Thanks for reading

    An update on the R2D2 throw, been so busy the past 6 months! I love how I now have time to sit and finish it off! I've ran out of white yarn, however I'm doing the grey blue and black parts first, with the yarn I have left then I can judge how much of the grey ans blue I need to purchase on top of white and more black.

    These are beautiful, well done xx
  13. When I found out the husband's nephew's fiancée was expecting, I told her when I found out what sex they were having that I wanted to make a baby blanket for her. I love making blankets for others and turning pretty yarn into something gorgeous. I decided to go for a sunburst granny square pattern and followed Sarah-Jayne's (Bella Coco) Pom Pom Edging tutorial on YouTube for the border. I also made it in her favourite shade of purple too! At the end I still had one ball of purple and one ball of beige left, so I decided to try Valerie's First Birthday Crochet Dress pattern a go and I think it turned out fab! Which is even more a bonus that that the Nephew's Bride to Be loves it too! I'd love to know what you all think!
  14. Thank You Cindy x
  15. Thank you ladies, the border took me 3 days to complete! (purely because I did it in between school runs, looking after kids and cooking lol

    Cot Blanket, Baby Girl - Pink

    A friend at my local craft club, asked me to make a crochet blanket for her great niece, big enough for her cot! I followed the tutorial for Bella Coco’s Granny Heart tutorial for the heart squares and created some plain squares too! Then crocheted it together and stuck a granny stripe border on it.

    I drafted out the design on square paper, as you can see I've coloured squares in green, but those are the white parts of the character, it was just easier for me to work out the amount of squares etc
