Dimitri’s Blanket

3161202360_04872c2c60

My sweet kitty turned 5 yesterday!  We totally celebrated his birthday, because we are slowly turning into the crazy cat people of the neighborhood, and it was fun!  Anyway, for his birthday I made him a new blanket.  He absolutely loves blankets, all kinds of blankets, but really the flannel ones are his favorites.

It was a family effort to make this for him.  Dustin picked out the fabric and I did the sewing.  Then Sophie kept it warm for him (or in other words, kicked him off of it so she could lay on it.  Looks like I need to make a second one).

I figured Dimitri wouldn't care if it had a crochet edging or a decorative stitch so I went with the fastest one.  I tried out a few new stitches (and even one that I might try for quilting next time) and finally settled on this one.

He really likes it and I think Sophie is jealous.  I really think I will be making a second one of these in the near future for her.

PS- Double yay to the Jazz for beating the Lakers last night!   Even with all the injured players, they still were able to win!  What a game!

Hi Cami I too love doing crocheted edging around fleece blankets. I thought since you said that you had no one to give them to you might want to look into donating them to Project Linus. This is the organization that I give mine to. I love your edgings and you just gave me a great pattern to use. Thanks so much
