This superb Pretty Hearts baby sleeping bag is beautiful when made and perfect for your special one to snuggle up in.
It also has many other uses including a play mat, changing mat or can be used as a blanket.

Giuliana wrote that it seemed as if elves and fairies had a hand in completing this beautiful, happy blanket. It seemed like she worked on it for ever, but then suddenly it was done! She feels that the blanket has its own beautiful aura of mystery and magic.
I have to say I agree!
Sarah at Repeat Crafter Me is another favorite of mine. She has taken the time to provide fantastic detail and close-up photos of this project. It’s so cheerful, and I love her choices of colors.
Birth Month Flower Grannies
According to what I could gather from the translation, the types of flowers used in this blanket represent each birth month. Pretty neat!

One of the fun things about this pattern (besides the hedgehogs) is how easily the colors can be changed to suit age and decor.

Sophie Digard’s specialty is color. According to The French Needle, “Fibers made and dyed to her specifications in France are shipped to her workshop in Madagascar where they are hand crocheted, knitted and embroidered into unique works of art.”
