::Puffy Patch Blanket Crochet Pattern::



There is something really exciting to me about sharing new patterns with you. I think it is because the notion of
taking an idea that started out inside my head, transformed a bazillion times and resulted in something tangible is very incredible to me. Very incredible indeed!


So here it is! I'm calling this the...


It is a puffy, patchy, polka-dotty quilt that makes me want to snuggle up under. Perfect for a baby. Perfect for a toddler. Perfect as a play mat. Perfect in a crib. Perfect for working up in your own colors. (Can you imagine it done in all white with only little colored dots?) Or even in "adult" colors and large enough as a bedspread?



Did I mention that it is super puffy and squishy? Oh, yes. I did. But I LOVE that part about it! So how did I make it so extra puffy? By making it similarly to how you actually make a quilt. 


And so I added ties, just the tied quilts I used to make when I was younger. It's super fun the way the colors play with each other from front to back, too.



I had this visual of the border in my head but wasn't sure if I could pull it off. I am quite pleased with the end result, if I do say so myself. I hope you like it, too. (Isn't it pretty with the light shining through like this?)


 You can find the pattern for purchase...

...in my Etsy shop here.
...in my LoveCrafts shop here.

And I would love a shout out to any of your other hooky friends--you know, a pin or two on Pinterest, a share on Facebook, Twitter or your blog, if you have one. I sincerely appreciate your support.

Thanks so much, my friends. Be well. I'll stop in again very soon!

    1. You are so kind, Joyce! I feel very amateurish. I don't know that I would have many suggestions for how to photograph--but I do have a room with great light and some clean and simple spaces without clutter. My older Canon Rebel SLR seems to be pretty effective. I assure you, nothing fancy and no training!
