I designed and made this blanket for Wheelchairs for Kids in Perth Western Australia, a charity that makes wheelchairs for kids in disadvantaged countries. With every wheelchair they give the child a 90cm x 90cm blanket and a stuffed toy. They also give the family a full-sized blanket as well.
I created this blanket so that I could use up some cheap acrylic that I had in my stash – the rainbow and coloured stripes – and I teamed it up with a good quality Patons acrylic. It was a wonderful way to use up the not so good yarn and still have a blanket that is soft and durable!

STITCHES & TOOLS
I taught myself to crochet in August 2016 in honour of my Grannie, Mabel Eileen. I have fallen in love with crochet and I’m passionate about creating new things, adapting patterns to make them unique to me and I’m venturing out into the world by creating my own patterns too. This shop is to further honour my Grannie and share my love of crochet with as many people as possible by making patterns and crochet items available to everyone.
I hope you’ll follow me on this journey…and join me in my mission to bring a unique and modern vibe to the world of crochet. I have a vision to lead others into learning the craft and to encourage them to bring their own style into the items they make. I will do this by providing versatile patterns, that I love and that represent me and my unique, yet elegant and timeless style.
