WHOOPS! I just noticed I forgot to post about LAST week's Spoonflower Design Challenge which was "Crochet Granny Square"! So, here is the design I entered which I call, appropriately, "Crochet Granny Square". Scroll down to see the INSPIRATION behind this design! Unfortunately, voting for this Challenge is now closed, but you can vote in THIS week's "Birding" Design Challenge (see my next post!)
When I saw the Spoonflower "Granny Square Crochet" Design Challenge, I immediately thought of the blanket I bought at a garage sale years ago (see below). Ever since then, my husband has been trying to re-sell it at the many garage sales we've had but I've always said "No way!" One of the things I really love about this blanket (aside from the handmade-ness and obvious love that went into making it) is the randomness of all the bright colours. So although the design I entered doesn't entirely copy this blanket, I really tried to capture that colour randomness (and btw: I do realize that my design doesn't have squares)! You can now purchase my "Crochet Granny Square" design in my Spoonflower Shop on Fabrics, Wallpaper and Home Decor in 3 sizes!
