Baby Round Ripple Blankets

It is time again to start making baby blankets for the 2016 NICU Baby Blanket Drive. Each year Kathryn over at Crochetville makes and collects baby blankets for the yearly delivery just before Christmas. This is the 10th year of the drive and my 7th as a contributor.

Mini Plarn Flower Basket

Mini Plarn Flower Basket

I needed a little mini flower basket for a garden theme crochet project so I cut some plastic bags very thin to accomplish this tiny recycled plastic basket. The basket is filled with wild Yarrow and Lupine flowers.

I used 2 recycled plastic bags and cut them in long continuous strips just a 1/4 of an inch wide. Here is one bag cut just 1/4 inch wide and rolled into a little plarn ball. As you can see this is thin, single strand plarn. I joined strips with a small knot and then just crocheted over the ends on the inside of the basket to hide the splices.

The granny square dishcloth was crocheted using my […]
