I don't know exactly where it came from, but I actually found the time to make a handful of things this past week.
With that said, I only found the time to photograph on of those said things.
Say hello to Mini Makes. The first of many jumpsuits for my tiny person (and your tiny person too, if you ask nicely).
More to come. Promise.

The idea of a handmade baby blankets just warms my heart (and honestly, towards the of my pregnancy I was looking for all kinds of projects to distract me from the fact that I was so close to bringing a brand new person into this world.) This pattern is fairly easy + repetitive enough for beginners and the size it ideal for any small crib, bassinet, or to throw on the floor for a little bit of "tummy time".
Please keep in mind, this is my first attempt at my own crochet pattern.
So if you run into any problems, I'm sorry! It made sense in my head! I will get better over time, I promise!

Finished Size - 26 inches wide x 37 inches long (Note: The yarn and gauge used causes stretching - I also tend to crochet with a loose tension, so the blanket may "grow" beyond these dimensions.)
