Knock-Off Bag

I saw this picture of a designer bag on-line. Very pricey! So I made my own version. Crocheted and felted, Cascade 220 fills the bill, and makes my version for about $15.oo - that makes me very happy!

Languishing on the UFO Pile

This blanket has been on my UFO shelf for, I'm embarrassed to admit it, at least 3 years.

The center is a large felted, garter stitch rectangle with a pieced and quilted border. The Geckos are batik panels I bought somewhere, sometime. and the back is pieced as well.

I like it very much :D

It's here, and I made the cover!

I'm very excited about the newest edition of Living Crafts Magazine. My Blankie Baby design is featured on the cover. I designed this toy for my grandsons so that they could have a quiet, smaller, snuggle blanket. It's been tested, and approved! I love the little model on the front - isn't she adorable?

The pattern for Blankie Babies appears on page 30 in the magazine. I sincerely hope you will enjoy it. This issue of Living Crafts is available from me directly, or on line at, or at my LYS The pattern alone can be purchased on
