Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Blanket

It's finally done! 

And I am so happy with the way it turned out! This blanket is for the newest addition to our family, Bristen Erick. 

I highly recommend this pattern as it was easy to follow. I was not familiar with all the stitches and hesitated to purchase it, but I'm so glad I did. The instructions were easy to follow. The end result was an adorable, beautifully textured baby blanket. 

I would have made the lovey, but I ran out of time!

The original pattern was by Christins, from My Sweet Potato 3, and the pattern name is My Sweet Teddy Bear Set on Ravelry. It includes the Lovey. 

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! Now onto the rest of the week!
