I had the idea for this baby blanket after coming across a Japanese crochet pattern on Pinterest that had this triangle design. I took that design and turned it into a blanket. My first thought was to do it in a solid color but then I thought it might be fun in stripes. I used three colors and decided to use blues, I thought the geometric pattern in the blanket would work well for a boy blanket but I think it would be cute in girly colors too, and as few or as many colors as you want.

I thought since today is the first of October and my first October having this blog it would be fun to show some pictures of halloween costumes that I have made for my kids in the past. I have not made their costumes every year, in fact I am not making costumes this year. At least not for the 3 oldest. We bought them costumes to wear to Comic Con a month ago with the understanding that they would be wearing those for halloween as well. I haven't decided yet whether I will make costumes for the little girls this year. Even though I have not made their costumes every year I love making halloween costumes. I think it is so fun to have costumes that are not the same as every other kid out there. Even though they might not be the only Jedi or Dorothy in their school parade their costume will still be unique, no one else will have the same one. I have loved doing theme costumes but I think we might be running out of years where that will work. Another thing that I like about sewing halloween costumes is that they really don't need to be perfect, they are just a costume, not something that will be worn all the time. I can just cut and sew and make it work.
