Here are a few things I've recently made:

I made this baby blanket for my nephew-to-be (any day now!).  It's definitely the most complicated thing I've made thus far and while there are things I could improve upon if I made another, I'm very pleased with how it turned out.  The pattern I used can be found here:


I used Lily Sugar n Cream instead of the Red Heart Baby (I just like cotton yarn better, and I feel like natural fibers are better for babies--just my opinion though).

I made this case for carrying random stuff in my purse like makeup brushes and stuff.  Didn't use a pattern--just hdc'd until I had a rectangle the size I wanted (my case is 24 hdc/row, which worked out to about 8 1/2 inches finished), added sides for depth (4-5 hdc/row), then sewed on a button.  Might make another in single crochet for my drawing pencils and pens that I carry around.

Suggestions and critique welcome--thank you for looking!

That's a great idea. I've been carrying all my random things around in a big ziploc. This has WAY more personality!!!

I've done a couple of those starghans now, and I have to say I've been thinking of jazzing them up a little. YOu did a really good job with that one! and I am with you on the cotton, not my personal preference, but my Mom made my DD one in cotton, and she LOVES it!
