If you've been keeping track, you know that I had one more set of 'baby stuff' to give before I could post photos.... and without further ado... here it is! Angie and KC had everyone to their new house over the weekend. Not only is the house wonderful, but it is unique - which is hard to find these days. They are expecting their first child in May.
Since they had the cotton blanket already, I decided to make a simple quilt out of cool cotton fabric and a light layer of batting.
So I did. But then I saw the fleece! So I did. :oP
I just trimmed up the edges and added a soft crocheted edging to the fleece, and now they have cool and warm versions of robot blankets.
I also couldn't resist my attempt at a crocheted robot and rocket ship. It's hard to add features when you don't want them to be a swallow hazard. I think they ended up ok, even though it wasn't exactly what I had in mind originally. Add the traditional cap and booties, and a robot bib, and the set is complete.
You all remember the story, three goats have to cross a bridge guarded by a cranky troll. (Not far off The Three Brothers for Potter fans!) They listen to the story, make stick puppets to tell the story at home, and they also get to act out the story as well.
The goats are basic beanies with horns and ears attached, and just a little chin fringe when the ties are tied. Can you imagine those cute little faces in there?
Hopefully Donna will be able to share a photo of the hats with kids actually in them someday...
