  1. This is very exciting for me. I could never have had this idea. I will look forward to every letter. Thank you so very much for sharing these on your blog!

  2. I love, love, love this! I’m working on blankets for my girls and after trying to crochet their names into the blankets and trying crocheting the names on, I think I love the idea of spelling their names out on stitching them on the blanket. It looks better on the back and I can even stitch something different on the other side if they want me to. What I was wondering is.. I’m missing the rest of the letters. Do you have any help for me?

    • Hi Miranda!
      A, E, F, H, L, P, T, U have made their appearance so far. The rest will be complete during the March Alphabet Madness :D

      Which letters are you looking for? (I’m not doing them in any particular order and have a few overlapping requests, so those will get bumped up first!)

  3. I look forward to March Alphabet Madness!! My oldest daughters name is Aniya. To complete all their names I would need J, O, R, D, C, and M. Thank you for any help. They are so excited to cover their beds with them. I was thinking about maybe adding some flowers on or hearts.

  4. Thank you so much for these letters! Do you do any greek letters?

    • You’re so welcome – and I am way behind on the regular alphabet – are there any particular greek letters you are looking for?

      p.s. love your etsy shop and the sets you choose to make!

Drop the hook & leave a message :D
