Bunny Blankie Pattern

There are so many things in my mind about my etsy shop, business, how to do promotion, products I need to make and so on.. I was drown with the ideas and my long long to do lists. By chance I found out "rich mum business" web site by Ranae and after watching her webinars, youtube videos I realized the mistakes I am making over and over.. This time I am getting serious about the business and moving on, one bite at a time :) I still have loads of things to do and sometimes 24 hours is not enough for me, especially with two kids :) 

I decided to use instagram more active as a promotion for my shop and my products. I started posting more often and got new followers. I also found out a new company called Three Bears Yarn, they were looking for crochet testers to test the patterns. Yay! I contacted them by email. I tested a blanket pattern made by Denise Potter. I really liked the cotton yarn they sent me. They are soft and easy to crochet. There were a few balls left from the blanket and David let me keep them for myself. They turned into a bunny blankie and I will share the pattern with you :)
