Sofia the First Blanket Buddy - Free notes



So, I've been quiet on here for a while working on super hero Blanket Buddies...I've been trying to knock out as many as I can!  I just celebrated 15 years married to my best friend Kevin and to extend the celebration, I ran a sale on all my patterns.  Well, you all were ah-MAZ-ing and purchased a bunch...thank you so much!!  I was so pleased that I finally finished up my next free notes for use with the Pretty Princess Lovey pattern by Bowtykes. 

As requested, I give you Sofia the First! 

 For those of you who aren't familiar with the my free notes, here's how we do it.  First, go to Bowtykes' Pretty Princess Lovey  
and purchase the base pattern.  (With her permission, I used her pattern to create this and all my Disney Princess notes and Villains notes.  Without purchasing the base pattern, my free notes will not make sense, so please go buy the pattern.  I promise you it's worth it.)  Then you can use these notes to make the necessary changes to create Sofia (and all the Princesses and Villains listed on my blog here).  

Thanks again to Briana Olsen of Bowtykes for the wonderful base pattern!  

And, here we go!

  1. I love it! I know it's not a princess, but could you create a pattern for Little Red Riding Hood?

  4. I LOVE these loveys! I taught myself to crochet and am trying things other than blankets. These have moved to the top of my list of future projects. Any chance you can adapt an Alice in Wonderland? While I can follow directions, I'm definitely not at a spot to create them!

  5. Thank you so much for your wonderful Loveys! My question is simple; do you use US or British crochet terms?
