Things to Make: Blessing Dress and Blanket




As promised I'm sharing some pics of the dress and blanket I crocheted for Amelia's blessing today!







I used the same yarn for the whole set, and I love how it all looks together!  The yarn is Bernat Baby Coordinates in White, Caron Simply Soft in Orchid and Blackberry, and Bernat Satin in Soft Fern and Sultana.  

You can find the pattern for the squares I used to make her blanket on Ravelry HERE!  

I used THIS method of joining the squares together, and then added a scalloped border myself!

(You might recognize this square from the Square a Day in May Crochet-A- Long that I participated in...and which I'm still trying to finish up!  Maybe more on that later this summer!)






I love the way it turned out...It reminds me of flowers growing up a garden lattice!  It's so soft and sweet!

Her dress was made following THIS Ravelry pattern.  I LOVE IT!!!  SHe had so many compliments on it, and it was so simple!


I added a lavender ribbon around the waist to compliment the purple flowers on her blanket.

I also made these ADORABLE little MaryJane Shoes, following this awesome pattern from Elizabeth Alan of The Lovely Crow.  Aren't they sooooooooo cute!?!





Amelia looked like a little angel in her dress and wrapped in her blanket!



Thanks for letting me show off!!  I think the most amazing creation in these pictures is our sweet little one, for sure!!

Have a great Wednesday!!
