My sis is pregnant with her first baby - a girl! - so I've been working on a few baby projects for her.
The first is a little blanket for the carseat. It's small enough not to drag on the ground, but hopefully big enough to cover the little one. I ran out of one of the colors I was working with, so couldn't make it as big as I wanted, but I think it'll be okay. It's 24 inches wide and 19 inches long. The colors are a match the colors of the stroller/carseat combo she got from our cousin.( Blankie )
She had seen a toy carrot in the most recent Ikea catalog, and was expecting it to be a rattle. But when we got to the store it was a squeak toy, and since she has a dog, a squeak toy is not an option for the baby. She was so disappointed that I had to make her a carrot rattle. I used the pattern off the Lion Brand website, but used a smaller hook size and changed the leaves a bit. I also bought a cheap (99 cents) plush rattle and ripped it open for the rattle part. Then I replaced the rattle with a squeaker and gave it to Dixie, lol.( Rattle )
Next up is an elephant mobile.
