Every heart beats true, for the red, white, and blue!

I got a commissioned order for an American flag crocheted blanket, it turned out a little bigger than I anticipated (Maybe I should do gauge swatches…)

I tried both crocheting and knitting a few star and was really not pleased with how they turned out, so I ended up ordering some felt stars off of Etsy, and sewed them directly onto the finished blanket, and I think it was a lot easier that way (And I did want it to have all 50 stars, which would have been a LOT more crocheting!!

And yes, I know, it’s supposed to have 13 stripes, oops!
