Bunny Jar Cozy


Valentine's Day is over, and Easter is just around the corner, so my little jar needed something new to wear.  I actually started out making something completely different, but I just wasn't "feeling it", and then this little guy popped into my mind and I thought I'd give him a try.   He looks like he wants jellybeans to fill it up, but I think I'm still going to go with peppermints.  If only there were peppermint jellybeans!  :)

Jar is about 5 1/2" tall and 15" around

"Eat - Play - Sleep - Repeat" Baby Blanket

My new design is finally finished!   A while back I had seen a cute baby quilt with the words
"eat, play, sleep, repeat" on it, and also some adorable fabric with those words and I wanted to find a way to translate this into a crochet baby blanket.  The blanket is worked in one piece in single crochet with bobbles used to create the raised lettering.  Each word's section has a chart to follow which indicates where to work the sc and bobble stitches.  Bobble stitches are very easy to do, and the pattern includs a photo tutorial on how to make this stitch.

I made this using Red Heart acrylic yarn so that is is easily washable.  The colors used:
White - 7 oz.
Orchid - 5 oz.
Delft Blue - 5 oz.
Spring Green - 5 oz.
Pumpkin - 5 oz.
