How it all started

The spring of 2013 l got word that my nephew and his beautiful wife  were expecting their first child, then l heard  another friend was expecting. I like to crochet, so decided to get busy and make two blankets one for a girl and one for a boy. For some unforeseen reason the girl blanket didn’t get to the intended person so l had a cute infant blanket on my hands. My sister saw an advertisement in the paper about Project Linus. l contacted the chapter coordinator in my area for  more information, and donated the  pink blanket. Since then l have been happily crocheting blankets, and thought it would be fun to keep a blog of all blankets l make and hope to inspire others to get  involved with Project Linus.

    • If you would like to post my blanket on your blog that would be great. Project Linus is a fantastic organization to be involved with, helps so many children in many countries.


  1. Thank you for the link to Project Linus, and for posting a link to my post. I’m so glad to have found your beautiful blog here! and Color! I have been making baby “sacks” this year for infants. The first was for my granddaughter, but like you, have had other loved ones having babies. This is a great way to swaddle a little one so they can’t kick their blankets off and can’t cover their faces as they sleep. A knitting friend gave me a book of patterns, and I’ve improvised on those designs with crochet. Best wishes, WG

  3. Funny I have made blankets for preemies etc for hospitals etc. But I never really thought about these blankets being made by children also. Great idea. BTW can I repost this post in a future post of my blog? I think it is something worth promoting.

    • Thanks for the comment! Project Linus provides blankets for troubled children up 18 years old. It would be very nice if you did repost at some point on your blog.


  4. I had heard of Project Linus and always wanted to join in, but thought I couldn’t as I’m in the UK. I’m so happy to see on your blog that there’s a UK branch! Thank you for putting the information and links up, I wouldn’t have found out about this if it wasn’t for you❤
