I am so excited! I have finally finished my Heart Of My Heart baby blanket and I now have both the blanket and the pattern listed in my Etsy shop. I like the way it turned out and think it’s a super cute pattern for the newest addition to your family.
I would love to hear your thoughts and what you think of it.
The pattern is available for purchase here Heart Of My Heart . I made 4 strips of Tunisian crochet using tunisian knit stitch and tunisian reverse stitich to make the heart pattern and then connected the strips with basic hairpin lace crochet and added a ruffle stitch border. For this blanket I used Bernat Baby Sport in Baby Pink.
I have to admit that the border had me a little flustered for a bit. I pretty much knew what I wanted it to look like, but had a hard time finding just the right way to do it. Oh what a happy day when I finally got it figured out (after ripping it out and re-doing it about 4 times). But after seeing the end result it was worth the extra work. Just goes to prove there is great worth to “sticking with it”.
I am working on a baby blanket design using Tunisian crochet and Hairpin Lace. It’s coming along quite nice and the picture in my head and what’s actually coming off my hook are pretty close 🙂 Sometimes I try something out and it’s not quite what I pictured.
This is a sneak peak at my Heart Of My Heart baby blanket. When I get it all together and have the finishing touches on the pattern I will have it available on my Etsy shop. This isn’t the best pic I have ever taken, but let me know what you think of it so far.

I have also finished a custom order for some adult size character hats. One skunk and one owl hat done and delivered. I am so glad to hear that she thinks they are ADORABLE!
Adult size fun hats
The owl hat I have made in kid sizes before, so I just adjusted the pattern for adult sizes. I had never made the skunk before so I looked up some ideas on Pinterest and came up with what you see here. Looks like I’ll have to remember what I did so I can make a few more 🙂
Now I’m off to finish a couple more custom orders and add some things to my inventory for the craft fairs coming up. Happy hooking everyone!!
