Pizza Pie Blanket


Most kids I know like pizza, but my daughter LOVES pizza! Last year her and her brother were talking about what they wanted as their first cars. My daughter wanted a car that she could paint to look like a pepperoni pizza. That conversation started a barrage of pizza related gifts - bracelets, pillows, etc.

Earlier this year I decided to use up some of my rather large stash of yarn to surprise her with a pizza blanket. I didn't want to make her something that looked like a slice, I wanted to go big and make a whole pie. And believe me, this blanket is big!

My daughter's blanket is just under 4 feet wide. That picture to the left is her holding her pizza. For reference, she is a little over 5 feet tall. The pattern below is what I used to make it this size, but you could easily make it bigger or smaller.

Bunny Coasters

Spring is finally in the air! Hopefully this warmer weather is here to stay. The sunny days and hearing the birds chirping in the morning has been getting me in the mood for Easter. My kids think my love for decorating is silly, but don't you worry. When they're grown with their own houses to decorate, I will be sure to remind them of how they laughed at me.

Not only do I love to decorate, but I love to make homemade decorations. Browsing through spring and Easter stuff on Pinterest, I came up with the idea to make bunny coasters. You should also know I love coasters. Some might say that love borders on obsession. We just ignore those people 😉

I think these coasters ended up just adorable! So the least I can do is share them with other bunny and coaster addicts like me.
