Vigga loves pink and everything that sparkles. And I found some sparkling fabric in one of my fabric piles and decided to make her a princess cape. She had just visited LEGOLAND and there she got a princess crown and pink princess sword and all she needed was a princess cape. Of course I had to make her one! I used all my pink and purple scraps to make it. Unfortunately I got the measurements wrong and the cape is too long for her but she loves it anyway.

A Crochet Baby Blanket


The bed spred/beach blanket (previous post) was the result of this crochet baby blanket for Sigrid. I was working on the blanket when Vigga (Sigrid’s older sister) asked me if it was for her. I told her that it was for her baby sister. Vigga then look so dissappointed that I couldn’t help asking her if she would like me to make her a blanket too. Vigga looked at me with her big blue eyes and curly blond hair and said yes with a sigh. I knew that it would take too long to make her a crochet blanket so there for I made her a patchwork blanket instead.

I made this crochet blanket for my niece Sigrid. I decided to play with colors because I am not very brave when it comes to play with colors. I often stick to one color scheme. So I am very happy with the outcome of the baby blanket that is inspired by the work of an amazing lady to be found on www.attic24.typepad.com.

I finished my very first patchwork project: a patchwork beach blanket / bed spred for my niece Vigga.

I crocheted a border and unfortunately it isn’t shown on the photo so you will have to take my word for it when I say that it looks great.

I also embroidered a small childrens verse on one of the squares. Translated it goes like this: A gentle kiss, carried by the wind, softly it lands on the cheek. In Danish it rhymes! I chose that verse so she would know that when the wind gentle strokes her face it is me blowing kisses all the way from Jutland.

 On an early summer morning I brought with me my crochet project and a cup of tea on the terrace. I am crocheting a vest for myself or for someone that fancies the colorful vest. Don’t know when I will finish it but for sure sometime this summer. These days I like to crochet – just like my grandmother used to do.
