Lot of 5 small size afghan books. 4-5 designs in each one. Then also just a tearsheet to make baby afghan with either bear or kitty motif squares. All are clean and unmarked.
This is a great, quick and crazy easy pattern. Perfect for the beginner crocheter or for those of us who love a good, quick, and useful pattern.
This can be easily made for a premature baby
The P. B. and J. Project
P = Pets
This times it’s all about the pets. This means cats and dogs! I want to work on building pet pads that are used in animal shelters. These will keep the bottom of the kennels warm when it gets really cold out. They are quick to make and are normally considered rugs. Grab a rug pattern and start knitting or crocheting some pet pads. Make circle rugs ( pet pads) for the cats and rectangle ones for all sizes of dogs. These pet pads have little to no restriction, so feel free to build them from whatever you can. We are hoping to donate 15 to 20 pet pads every month… That means within a year we will have at least given 100 pet pads!
Last year it was all about the blankets. This time it’s about baby booties and baby hats. Both of these take very little time to make because they are smaller but the rules are unique because they have direct contact with the body of the child. These will still be donated to premature babies. We are hoping to donate 15 to 25 sets each month. That is a ton but it’s very easy to reach because baby booties only take 1 oz of yarn per pair. While the yarn needed is less… the cost of yarn is still there.
This year we are spreading the joy of reading , writing and learning. We will be publishing the first yearbook which is going to be called Joy. Secondly we will be holding a magazine fund raiser. This fund raiser will provide Ink Bean with enough funds to pay for the ebook publishing and also to afford buying enough yarn to do these monthly projects.
