My Owl Blanket Pattern on Etsy
Happy Monday friends!
We start this week with granny squares as inspiration. As I have previously mentioned a couple of times, I plan to make a granny square inspired collection this winter, a collection that will encompass all the wonderful uses of a these lovely and versatile squares.
The granny square is the most iconic motif in the craft world and its uses are plentiful.
If you were wondering what can you use it for besides making 1) blankets and afghans, here's a list that might inspire you to make something different.

From blouses, tops and sweaters to cardis and ponchos. Grannies not only make the clothes more appealing and colorful, but they also give out a vintage and nostalgic vibe.
Shawls, scarves and hats are the first to pop up to me, although I am always inspired to find new uses for it and in the picture above you can see my head scarf/kerchief. Then there are home-slippers, bags and pouches and the list goes on....
Here's a free pattern by Lulluby Lodge for fingerless warmers. How cute are these?
I love a good challenge and I am always excited to harness the granny into jewelry projects. I am going to share a free brooch tutorial later this month, so stay tuned.
5) Home decor
Pillows, cushions, buntings, table-runners, wall hangings, lamp-shades for the living room, rugs, kitchen towels and pot holders for the kitchen. (Hot) Water-bottle covers maybe?
