Allyson Makes: Baby Animal Face Blanket



Hola Friends!

I finally finished this baby blanket after a few hiccups (running out of yarn... not being able to find any more of the yarn in the same color... that kid of stuff). But I knocked out the finishing touches last night, thanks to a few hours on the couch with a Monk marathon.



I crocheted a mini afghan, about 2.5 x 2.5 ft, then made a few triangle pieces for the ears and a bigger one with a right angle for the head. Sewed them all up with some felt added for details, crocheted about 12 stitches in two rows around a circle for the eyes, and voila!

The blanket is for little baby Gordon, who belongs to two pretty awesome friends- Sophie and Michael Pullen. Check out Sophie's blog here. She writes about her family and interior design stuff. Maybe she'll post a picture of little Gordie wrapped up in his new blankie when it arrives! (hint hint).

Anyway, hope he loves it!
