After my 3 hour drive back home from Waterport today I was just dying to do some crafting. Even though it was Victoria Weekend I guess I left early enough before everyone else hit the roads so the traffic was good. That must be why I had time to think of what I would do when I got home. Anyway. Its another Beach Bag/Tote.
I call it a beach bag because the lining is waterproof like the first one I made and that is on sale in my Etsy store. You could actually use it for doing the “tourist thing” or when you are going shopping around home too. Pack a picnic in it….put in baby’s goodies when you are going out someplace…hmmmm…you can use it for so many different reasons.
Janet had her baby shower yesterday. She’s due on June 28th…her dad’s birthday is on the 30th. Maybe he’ll get a very special birthday present this year. :o) The shower was held at a lovely dance studio that belongs to one of her best friends. The little one received so many presents. Its all so exciting. I think its going to be a boy and I believe apart from her mother-in-law we’re all guessing she’s carrying like “a boy”. We can’t wait. One of the presents I gave her was this baby blanket I made. It is made up of different layers and cut and the more you wash it the more chenille like it becomes. The closeup picture was taken before the required washings were done to create the chenille look.
The fabric is wonderful. I will be offering some in my store but in a different print. I’ve had quite a bit of interest in this blanket as well as requests for instructions. I had seen someone elses version of a chenille type blanket someplace once and I came home and worked at making my own version of it. Although I’ve never made a pattern I may work at one for this blanket that I can put up for sale in my Etsy Shop.
Now we’ll just sit and wait for the little bundle of joy to arrive..
