Cot Blankets and Mandalas in Our Etsy Shop and More Free Patterns!

Here at Elephant Sun Dog, we craft handmade items of all sizes, from small to fairly large 😀
And I've just added three more handmade items to the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop and these are all ready for the colder months to come.

There are two Baby Blankets:

A pretty 'sunshine' blanket for a cot or pram cover.
Sunshine Cot Blanket for sale on Etsy

This is a unique design using a pattern designed by talented Christine Bumgarner, called You Are My Sunshine.
I think I've done the pattern justice. It certainly was enjoyable.
If you would like to have a go at making this lovely pattern, you can find it here:
CAL Crochet Along You Are My Sunshine

And I would love it if you also went and had a look at more pictures and read about my version of this sweet cot blanket here:

Then there is a lovely bright rainbow strips cot blanket.
Bright Rainbow Colours Cot Blanket for sale on Etsy

This is a nice, sizeable cot blanket which is large enough for a chid's bed as well as a cot.
I love working in bright rainbow colours, so this one was a real treat to make.
I used a pattern called Unicorn Stripes Baby Blanket designed by talented Megan Meyer.
You can find the pattern here on Ravelry:

And to see more of my Bright Rainbow version of this pattern, and read more about it, you can see it here:

I have also added a large Mandala Table Cover to the Etsy shop.
This one is in multi colours and will definitely brighten up your living room!

Again, I used a pattern, this time designed by the very gifted Anna Nilson.
If you want to have a go yourself at making this lovely Mandala, do go and have a look at Anna's website where she hosted the CAL for this lovely pattern.
You can find all the links to various parts of the pattern here:
Unicorn Mandala CAL

And of course, I mustn't forget to add a link to the Mandala table cloth I made from this pattern (as shown in the picture above).
You can find it here:
Handmade Crochet Mandala Table Cover, Home Decoration, multicoloured circular tablecloth

So there you go.
Three more items added to our Etsy shop and links to some lovely crochet patterns (two of which are free, and the other has a free and paid version).

I hope you enjoy them.
And if not, I'm sure you know someone who would like to see the handmade items I have made from the patterns :)
