|Afghan made from pattern in The Official Looney Tunes Cross Stitch|
Book - Leisure Arts Leaflet #2723
I love Looney Tunes and fell in love with this afghan pattern in The Official Looney Tunes Cross Stitch Book - Leisure Arts Leaflet #2723. (I found a copy of the leaflet on Amazon.com. You may see it here if you are curious. I am not affiliated with Leisure Arts. However, I do earn a small credit from Amazon for purchases made from my blog.)
This afghan seemed like the perfect project to share with the Monday Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape today.
I spent a morning tying the edges off. Then, I spritzed Spray 'n Wash on the stains and put it through two washes on a delicate cycle. Aside from the tiny spot next to Taz, the stains all washed out!
I opted not to dry the afghan, but let it air dry. So, it is still a bit damp and wrinkled in the photo above.
When I showed it to my son (who had completely forgotten about this UFO of mine), he asked what he was supposed to do with it. I suggested he save it for his first kid and he liked that idea.
Rather than being a REALLY late gift, it is now a REALLY early one.
Sixteen years later, I still love this afghan.
Now both boys have their own baby afghans to set aside for some day in the distant future. (The "Baby Afghan Safari I made for my eldest son may be seen in this post.)
Thank you so much for stopping by! I do hope you will check out the other blog posts shared at the link party this week.
