Tale of 3 baby blankets: Part Three

Girl's "Owl" Baby Blanket:

My next friend didn't really have a theme for the baby's room, but she loves owls.  So, that's the direction I went.

I thought this blanket turned out great too.  Lovely neutral colors, with a pink and brown border.

I finished the blanket before the baby was born, so I wasn't able to put a date on it.  I still think it looks amazing!

Boy's "Pond" themed blanket:

My next friend decided to decorate the baby room in a pond theme.  She is an artist and did a wonderful mural on the wall.  I wanted to make something to complement the room.

I think I succeeded, and the final project looked amazing!

Tale of 3 baby blankets: Part One

My latest cross stitch projects were baby blankets for 3 friends, with very different themes.

Girl's Sci-fi blanket:

Unfortunately, I didn't take individual shots of each section, as I was in a hurry to send this off to Germany before the little one arrived, but I do have a few.

Most of the patterns I used are on my Pinterest board.

Overall, this was my favorite one!  I loved putting a girly spin on all the colors of the Star Wars pictures, and I can't wait to try my hand at another one.  I have some sci-fi stockings in mind for Christmas!
