Brainstorming

I'm contemplating making this crochet shark blanket that has been viral on Facebook. And maybe some of these mermaids too! Wouldn't it be cute to have all 7 of the nieces and nephews in these on Christmas morning!?!
I'm also gaining confidence with crochet stuffies. Bought yarn to make a giraffe and some snowmen, maybe an Olaf!
