Iron Craft #7 - On Trend

This week's challenge:

"So, create a project based on one or more of the trends below…
Radiant Orchid


I chose the simplest geometric design and went with cubes.

Crocheted baby blocks!

I used a very simple pattern I found on Ravelry. They are crocheted in 6 sides and the crocheted together with foam in the centre.

There are stripes on 2 of the sides of 2 of the blocks to add some pattern. But I didn't feel like they were quite done after I made these, so I've been working on my crochet skills by making appliques for the sides of each block.

For the purposes of this challenge though, the cubes are enough. I'll show you my progress on the appliques in a later post. I have given each block a theme. One is all fruit, one is bugs, one is season-themed, and the last is animals.

Here is the link to my geometric cubed baby blocks project on Ravelry.

PS: I've got my fingers crossed that the next Iron Craft project we will do will be Peeps! EEEEEE!!!. I've already went on a hunt for Peeps and found them at good ole Walmart. I picked up a bunch and have been brainstorming ideas. So if there isn't a Peeps challenge this year (lots of the Iron Crafters live in places where Peeps are not readily available) I will still make a Peeps craft to share with you. ;)

I'm not doing a specific peeps challenge this year but I think you can still fit peeps into the next one anyway.... :)

I'm interested to see the finished blocks with the appliques on them.
