I was inspired by some awesome grand-moms to be to do a simple, basic and cozy baby blanket. I decided on a pattern of my favorite which is a Baby Cocoon (sometimes misspelled cacoon ) because it so closely resembles a mothers womb. I got busy on A LOT of research before actually starting on the design. I didnt want to make one just for decorative or proping purposes but instead for practical, functional and safe use with a newborn.

On the website post aside from the FREE Pattern you will find a VIDEO TUTORIAL and all of my research notes.

Ages ago I saw someone on craftster make a shirt based off this old pattern, and I loved it. I can't find it now, otherwise I'd link it, but I had to try my version.

It's got a circle skirt on the bottom, ties in the front and back, and buttons added under the arm for modesty. I looooove it! Just need to be careful when the wind blows ;P

This is what it looks like before you tied it up, when you pretend it's a cape..

Here are my journal pages for my 'partners'. I had to go old school with scans. Still no computer cord for my camera  Embarrassed

My partner plans to paint a fiery background paper and journal memories about campfires, bonfires, and the time she almost burnt down her woodland fort by cooking bologna on a coffee can  Grin Oh, and her Dad was a Detroit Firefighter and taught her lots of pyromaniac things growing up. More sketches included to illustrate her thoughts.

My partner plans to use a sheet of frosted vellum to journal her favorite ice memories. First time in snow, learning to ice skate, visits for Slurpee treats with Dad (7-11 logo image included), snow skiing. She has pictures that she can add for these and maybe do a few sketches, too.

So, taaa-daa. Only one hour late for deadline. I napped after dinner. Sorry.

It's been such a long time since I last posted!  Never fear, tho' - I've been crafting away.  Here's a few of the things I've added to my list!

9. Mermaid gloves

My younger sister doesnt knit.  So she was easily impressed when she saw me knitting a fingerless mitt without a pattern, just to use up the last of a skein from another project.   So impressed, I knit another one that night and gave the pair to her!

10. Millionaires shortbread/nutella rice crispies/lemon pudding cake

During the spring fund drive at work, I was a bakin fool; making all sorts of snacks for co-workers and volunteers.  Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures until it was almost all gone

11. Black wave hat

Using up more yarn!

12. Thank you cards

Some of the over 100 (!%^@*!) hand made thank cards for work.  Its hard to say no when my boss has a bright idea

13. Potato soup and sourdough bread
More food I forgot to photograph, but man was it tasty!  Lunch for a week!

14. dangly earrings

I made several pairs of earrings for the Use What You Have swap.  I liked em so much I made a few more pairs!

15. Steampunk copper planter

I go to a big garden swap twice a year, and I always try to make something unusual for a door prize.  This started out as a handful of unused PVC plumbing elements in the basement.

16. Pulled chicken and rhubarb crisp
  And of course, I cant go to the swap without food, right?  More lousy pictures of food; in this case, pulled chicken and rhubarb crumble.

And finally (for now!)
17. Brittle peanuts

A friend was heading out on a trip, so I made him a batch of sweet and spicy brittle peanuts for the road!

There's plenty more, but I'll give it a break for now.  And it looks like I've got lots of pages to catch up on!

I have received some awesome ATCs over the last week. Behold:

Fluffy white sheep by sammylouise40
The sheep are 3D and actually fluffy.

Amanda Palmer by curiousfae
I LOVE this woman, and this quote.

Robot for Vincent by curiousfae
This robot has stretchy arms because it gives hugs. My son just loves his first ATC.

Owl Woman by Jillybeans
I giggled when I opened this. It's such a neat interpretation of this theme.

Non-paper by aftewineroses
This is embroidered with teeny-tiny stitches. Wow!


I really love them all. Thank you everyone!!

I did it again, forgot to look for the gallery. Awesome cards all!

fyi, If you go in the "My Craftster, My Picture Hosting" you can edit your picture to turn it right side up.

I got this adorable bun from Pioneer9. So sweet.  Smiley We were just talking about getting a pet selfie stick for our bun. Not really but it would be funny to see the world at her level. I bet we'd get a lot of these looks.

Wow, I love that dress-up Troll. What an utterly brilliant idea!

I just received TWO fabric art journal pages from pioneer9. Now, I know we were only supposed to send one page to each partner, but there's an explanation (of course).

You see, she embroidered the tree (r) to put on the twig background fabric (l), but when they were put together, they just didn't go. So there was nothing else for it but to make another background for the tree and another patch for the twig fabric. What's a crafter to do? Cheesy

I'm so glad this happened, because I got two great pages and I love them both. The embroidered tree is beautiful and that quote is perfect - I've always thought it was someone like John Muir or Thoreau, so I was surprised to look it up just now and find it was Picasso who said it! And the twig fabric is really terrific - I'm lucky I haven't found it for sale here, or I would buy the whole bolt.

Oh, and I also got a lovely card with a photo of the immortal Walt Whitman. Extra thanks for that!

As a child I made an Ankylosaurus in plasticine. .It was and Still is my favorout of all dinosaur.I thought it was a cool Animal becos of its armour and rather Friendly nature..The Ankylosaurus was an herbivore and its only defense against predators was their armour which excisted out of osteoderms and their very powerful bony club tail which made.that they survived a lot of attacks of the predators without getting dangerous themselves ..Imagine putting your teeth in such a shield. .wooooow. .While I was taking the pictures a Tripawaurus jumped out of the bushes just at the moment that I pushed the button of my camera ( and this one was real! ). . Roll Eyes
