African flowers lap blanket

Well - here it is - my african flowers lap blanket. It measures 39" across. I have to admit that I did get kind of tired working on it. I don't exactly know why - can't quite put my finger on it. I still love it though - so pretty and colorful.  :)
eta:  found a use for this blanket - I'm using it as a curtain topper in my craft room.

  1. Debi,
    This is so beautiful! I must be the only one that hasn't tried doing the flowers.
    It is simply stunning.
    What a good idea to make something so different.
    Hey! who needs shops!
    Really lovely work,
    I love it.

  5. Debi, I love it. I hope mine comes out half as good as yours did. Its beautiful. You were the one who inspired me to try these flowers. Such a great pattern.

  6. Thank you glor. I saw your flowers on your blog - they're beautiful too. :)

  7. How stunning! I love it, I'm sure you do too! :o)

    I tried to do those flowers and for some reason they curled up on me. They were pretty but turned up. I don't know what I was doing wrong.


  8. Thanks Kat.

  9. Debi, I came across this picture when I was Googling for African flower purses. It's so pretty! I see that you made it a good while back, but I just wanted to tell you I came across it and thought it was fabulous! I'm making a bag with some Noro yarn I've had forever right now, and I'm thinking about making another one using the African flower pattern. XOXO

    1. Thank you Pammy Sue. I'm using this blanket as a curtain topper in my craft room - I like it - looks kind of cute. :)
