Dressing up like a princess is fun, but if you’re an adult and you feel a little weird about putting on a costume from the Disney store, there’s now a solution for you: the Princess Dress Blanket, crocheted blankets made to look like the dresses worn by your favorite Disney princesses.
What better way to feel like royalty than to lie around watching Netflix, cuddled up under a blanket that is as comfortable as it is magical. You’ll enjoy some next level lounging once you’re decked out in one of these beautiful crocheted creations:
To get your hands on one of these fancy blankets, you have to have some crocheting skills, as they aren’t sold in stores. Just head to Etsy and purchase a PDF download of a crochet pattern for one of three princess blankets. The patterns are sold by Carol Hladik under her shop name CHCreations4U. Get your hands on one of them and you could soon snuggle up under a blanket that turns you into Belle, Sleeping Beauty or Rapunzel.
“I love blankets, and thought it would be fun to make one that looked like a princess dress,” Hladik told The Metro. “The first one was the Yellow blanket. I was overwhelmed with the response and requests for other designs.”
The patterns only cost $5.50, but you’ll also need some 2,400 yards for an adult-size blanket, as well as two strands and a hook. Since this project is also customizable, you can always mess around with colors to tailor the blanket to the princess that most strikes your fancy. There is also one pattern available for a toddler. Matching mommy and me blankets anyone?
“I have been working pretty much non-stop since February to come up with other designs and add sizes to the current ones,” said Hladik. “I hope to be able to add other items to my shops soon.”
