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.
