I'm still wending my way through Louisa May Alcott, helped along now by a cozy companion...
I based my HWB cover on these guidelines (inspired by this picture), but left the bottom open so I can wash it. My favorite place to keep a hot water bottle is at my feet, after all, so I figured I should keep my options open.
The bottom stays secure with a couple of buttons, but I think it would be just fine without them, since the edges curve in a bit.
It feels a bit Scandinavian to me, with the red, pink, and white threads, the cross-stitching, and of course, the warmth. It really falls into my favorites category for crochet projects.
And I just love how it matches the pink slippers my future in-laws got me for Christmas. (I feel like I'm walking on a memory foam mattress all the time.)
Linking up with Ginny. Happy Wednesday!
