Sew Crafty Friday - Crochet Edge Baby Blanket


I am so happy to finally have a project to show on Sew Crafty Friday!

This is a crochet edge blanket I finished a couple of weeks ago. My camera worked for about 3 minutes and this is the picture I was able to get.

The fabric is a basic flannel which I prewashed and pressed. The crochet edge is made from white crochet thread. I used a steel hook and poked the holes with it as I worked. I don't have access to a serger, so I turned under a 1/4 inch hem on the fabric and then encased that with the crocheting.

I'm working on another blanket now. It has black, gray and red dogs on it and the crochet edge is a matching red.

I also have a long weekend this weekend and am working on a baby quilt for my nephew's upcoming baby shower.

Oh, my gosh, are you ambitious! That is so cute, but I can't imagine how hard it was to poke holes with a crochet hook.
Thanks for stopping by. Isn't it funny how many people have chickens or roosters in their kitchens? What's up with that?
No great organizing this week, although I might try to get another bag off to the thrift store tomorrow.
