Craft Continues

It's funny how my baby blankets have developed over the past year or so. I think I have made about 15 or 16 in total now......they started out fairly plain with little tabs here and there.....the shapes being the important part, but then coloured pre-felt entered my life and inspired me even further......now the colours are important and the embroidery too....



I've gone through a bunny rabbit phase........a car theme.......



........and fairy tales......the last 2 have had an alien theme and another fairytale....now I am on to the yellow submarine....




The squeaker is inside the big space ship and it says "take me to your leader!"

The latest finish:






Here the squeaker is inside the tower - I think the prince got lost on his way to rescue Rapunzel! Like any good women (as suggested by a 6 year old after hearing the story and declaring it to be stupid.....) she would probably think the whole thing is just silly, chop off all her own hair, weave a rope and climb down - who needs a prince to rescue her!!

Your Rapunzel is the sweetest! I agree with the six year old, but then again it is fun to see those men try so hard. Anna

I adore your Rapunzel. I always wonder how she bore having someone climb up her hair, I'm sure it would be extremely painful having a full-grown man pulling away at the old ponytail.

The little alien made me smile.
