Miss Lydia's Crown

Becky and Kenny have been waiting for a baby to adopt. The call came, the mother gave birth last week (Becky was in the delivery room, they are participating in an open adoption) and they are now the parents of a bouncing baby girl.

I knew I had to make Becky something special . . not only did I have her as a student, her Momma and I taught together for ears, and for a lot of those years, we were in a Euchre Club together.

You have already seen the Tulip Cocoon and hat. I wanted to get a piece of light weight pink flannel to make the receiving blanket. When I found the ballet slippers, I knew I had a winner. Becky studied ballet all through school . . . so she will know I picked this material out specially for her baby.


I call this pattern, Lydia's Crown.
(The pattern includes a photo tutorial on how to add a finishing edge
 to an unfinished blanket so the edging may be added.)
Don't you think it has a resemblance to a crown? 
Since Miss Lydia will be treated as a queen . . .
what a perfect name.

If you would like to buy the pattern, it is available for $1.99 in my Ravelry Store, "The Fur~Babies Momma." Just click the buy now button to be transported to my shop.

 ***100% of the purchase price for the pattern goes to Natalie's 2nd Chance Shelter, a no-kill dog shelter in my home state of Indiana. It is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization***
