1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Receiving Blanket (Crochet Edging) on: April 29, 2010 06:13:58 AM
Thanks and a receiving blanket is just a thinner blanket for a baby instead of the fleece blankets that is thicker for the babies. I thought since summer is coming instead of making hot fleece blankets I can work up some receiving blankets instead.
Oh and I hand sewn it while it was sandwiched together it wouldn't have worked in the sewing machine it would have got stuck from the yarn.

Thanks everyone for looking and for the comments.

Thanks you 2. I thought that poking holes will take way to much time. Trying to follow a stitch pattern I would had to make sure I had the right amount of holes to do my stitch pattern. But, this worked up just right.

I was able to finish that girlie baby blanket that has the crochet edging going around it. It came out so pretty love the outcome to it.
I brought 2 yards of the fabric 1 yard on each side with the crochet edging sandwich right between the fabric. I have to hand sew it cause I can't sew it with my sewing machine don't want the yarn getting stuck in my machine.
I found a easier way to do this then poking holes in the fabric.
I picked a thinner fabric so it's more of a receiving blanket then a blanket since it will be getting warmer outside dont want anything to thick when summer comes. I thought this would be great for a gift since a lot of my friends having babies this summer.

Thanks for looking

I like it, although I am privy to longer jackets. I like the grey you used, did you use a liner? If so, what fabric did you use for the jacket and liner?

Thanks everyone for the great feedback. I totally love this jacket. YES, no pattern used just used a old jacket as my guideline to get what I wanted int this jacket.

Fabrics I used. I did use lining for the inside. It is cotton. Outside fabric is Twill I think or more like light weight denim not so sure. I know the fabric isn't suitable for the winter weather more likely for the spring weather.

Again thanks everyone for the great comments.Smiley

This jacket is light weight for me to wear when spring time hits. I loved how this jacket came out.

Oh by the way NO PATTERN used, I used a old jacket as my guideline and then took what I knew about sewing and went for it.Smiley





My jacket contains, 4 pockets, with 1 button on each pocket for a design. Also have 4 buttons for closure and a 3 belt hoops and 1 belt that I can easily tie around me.

So what you all think?
Comments totally welcomed.Smiley
