Hi, can you help me please. My nephew recently told me his wife had a baby girl and thought I would like to make some bunting for her as it is different. Is there any way that I can get the patterns for doing the bunting with different letters, the only one that comes up is the L, now I can't get that now. thank you so much, I will pay if you want me to for the letters. No one else with see or have the patterns. I don't share any patterns I have been given or bought over the years. I am in the UK. Thank you so much - Sandra.

Oh thank you for this and the timing is perfect! I have a family member who was just told she has bone cancer. I am so making this starting today after I go buy the yarn. This pattern is so great with written directions for each word and grafts showing how to do it. I downloaded the PDF and can't wait to make it. I just hope it doesn't take me long to wipe it up. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet Support Lap Blanket pattern.

I love the concept. I love the technique. I suppose changes a few words could make this gift able for any reason. We all need support in some fashion or another.

This is a beautiful thought. Thank goodness at this time I have no one to support through such a time but the sentiment is beautiful. Hoping I will never need to make this for someone for the cause but I will save it. You never know that the future holds.
