Here's the pattern:
I loved how it looked fresh and modern but still nice and cozy. Perfect for cuddling with your adorable little baby. When I clicked on the pattern, I had a little bit of trouble since the whole pattern was written in Japanese, which I do not speak. I had also never followed a crochet diagram before, I always used written directions. But using some tutorials online, I was able to figure it out (it's easier if you have the different stitches memorized!) Here is a helpful resource I found .
And here is my finished project:
I love how it turned out. I made it crib sized instead of twin bed size like they suggested. It is very snuggly and warm and I'm sure once I get going on her room, it will match perfectly! I guess the moral of this story is that you shouldn't be afraid to try new things in decorating or crafting. It doesn't matter what it is, try it! It could be a new tool, or pattern, or decorating scheme, just go for it!
Since this is the last time that I'll be posting, (don't worry, you still have one more from Faith and Heidi!) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I'll be posting on Monday and showing you some pictures of our family Christmas, including a few more crafts that I finished.
