Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone is staying safe and having a good time celebrating such an important moment in history for those of us here in the United States of America. I figured the best way to celebrate was to have a showcase/pattern round up since I have plenty of patriotic patterns I’ve used recently.
This is my newest daughter Silvie’s nursery nook! I decided to go with a Patriotic theme since my master bedroom is all done up in Americana collected from Volant Mills, PA. As a child I was always enamored by the goods sold at Oak Creek Creations in Volant. It’s no lie when I say I truly went overboard decorating with barn stars and wall hangings of rustic red white and blues.
The first thing I made was this Star-Ghan. The FREE Pattern By Megan S. Wright of Laugh Love Knit can be found HERE
The next thing on my project list was a bigger blanket for the colder months. I ended up coming up with this one on my own. I modified a sort of granny square then sewed all the squares together. Finishing it off with a double crochet border in a complimenting color.
What goes better with blankets than pillows?!? This gorgeous pattern of the Americana Pillows comes from Erica Fedor of Country Living Crochet and can be found HERE
Even though the pillows were made last I was already on a star kick and just HAD to make this cute baby mobile to hypnotize little baby Silvie to sleep. The straps and hoop was whipped up by upcyling an embroidery hoop. The Star Spangled Star pattern comes from Jaime Eads Maraia of Crochet Dynamite and can be found HERE.
Speaking of stars I thought adding some stars to these color Block Baskets pattern(HERE) that I found by Heather Lodinsky for Red Heart Yarnspirations was the perfect patriotic touch. The Super Stars Amigurumi by Amy’s Odyssey can be found HERE
That wraps up the Patriotic showcase of patterns I utilized for my daughter Silvia’s nursery nook. With both cars paid off it’s time to house hunt for our first owned home.(big hooray) I hope she can enjoy her lil nook until it’s time to upgrade to our bigger house. Then she can have her own room or even share with her sissy! The patterns are also quite versatile so they can remain in the master bedroom when she outgrows the crib too! 🇺🇲⭐
