Well, this is my first contest here at Craftster. I'm nervous but here goes...
Since Mother's Day is fast-approaching, I thought this would be an appropriate entry for the food contest.
This is the front of a snuggly baby sort of sleeping bag thingie.
It is a breastfeeding symbol
I found here. http://www.mothering.com/sections/action_alerts/iconcontest/icon-winner.html
This symbol was the winning design of a contest to create a Breastfeeding icon/symbol. The creator of the symbol, Matt Daigle, has signed all rights to the symbol over to public domain so anybody can use it for anything.
This is the back of the sleep sack. (I had a hard time deciding what to put here. I was going to go with, "Got Milk?" but that seems to be way over-used. So I came up with "The Milky Way" instead.)
I tried to get a photo of the inside. It was hard to take a photo of. I'm going to have to post the rest of the photos in my blog. (I always take too many).
It's all done in tunisian afghan stitch crochet. I used a long H hook. I'll post this one last photo I took while still making it.
It's all one long piece. I started at the top of the mommys head, worked down the graph to the bottom, then, (after I graphed the words), I started on that graph working from the bottom up to the top just above the word "The". (In the photo I hadn't gotten to the "The" yet. (You can see by where the hook is how much I had left to do).
I hope all that makes sense. LOL! Then I folded it in half and crocheted the sides together.
It now measures 14 inches by 19 inches.
