Tummy Time Baby Blankets

A new addition to my Etsy shop!

Yesterday, I added a couple of new baby blankets to my Etsy shop.  They’re made with super soft Bernat Chunky Baby Yarn which is a 5 weight so it’s a bit thicker than regular worsted weight or thinner DK weight.

I did a half double crochet stitch into the back loop to create an almost knitted look.  This gives the blanket a nice deep texture and allows for extra warmth and thick cushioning.

These little blankets make perfect Tummy Time mats for baby and are also extra warm and cozy for wrapping around the baby on chilly days in the stroller and cool evenings blanketing the child on its way, and in its car seat for a ride home from Grandma’s house.

I’ve added two different color blankets so far.

Pastel Multicolor with White Stripes

Pastel Multi Color and White Tummy Time Baby Blanket

Tummy Time Blankets Make GREAT Baby Shower Gifts!

Tummy time is an important part of baby’s growth and development.  My extra thick crocheted blankets help make it a soft and cozy experience.

Thanks for stopping by to take a look!

Crochet Flowers for Mother’s Day – 3 Fun Etsy Finds – Realistic Flower Crochet Patterns

Realistic Crocheted Flowers make GREAT Mother’s Day Gifts.

Every Mom deserves flowers for Mother’s Day!  By giving her a beautiful bouquet of crochet flowers, she can keep them virtually forever!

At Etsy, you can find some of the loveliest crochet flower patterns anywhere and if you don’t crochet, you can also find gorgeous bouquets of crocheted flowers that have been made with love for your mother.

I’ll be sharing three of my favorites here today.

It’s amazing how realistic some crocheted flowers can be.  I’ve never even attempted anything this detailed yet but I do admire anyone who can create something this stunning and I do plan to try making some of these one day soon.

Take a look at this African Violet crochet pattern.  Isn’t it exquisite?

I guess you’ve noticed that I was in a pretty pink mood today while choosing these wonderful floral crochet patterns but one of the best things about making your own is that you can choose to change the colors to anything you like.  So, if mom’s favorite roses are yellow, you can absolutely make her a gorgeous yellow crocheted rose instead of the pink one shown in the pattern.  Heck, you can even make them multi-colored if you want!

What do you think?  Will you be handmaking anything this Mother’s Day?  Share your thoughts in the comments.  I love hearing what my readers are making!
