My “babies” are regular kids now, notsomuch babies anymore, but I am lucky to have a close friend with a new little guy, so I *may* have gone overboard with baby sewing. It’s just so cute! I whipped up one more Book-inspired sewing project for the little guy, a Romper for the summertime based on old favorite, The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. It’s reversible, and oh, so cute.
I have done a couple other recent baby projects, these reversible Poofy Pants with matching onesies turned out too cute! These make great baby gifts are are designed to have a little extra room in the backside to accommodate cloth diaper bulk, something I wish I’d had when my babies were babies with fluffy cloth diapered backsides!
I am adding both the reversible rompers and the poofy pants baby sets to my offerings soon,they can be made in any colors or themes just ask!
This past week, Grandma was in town playing with the boys so I had lots of free time to sew. I finished quite a few unfinished projects and got all caught up with my etsy orders. I finished a quilt I had started months ago, sometime way back in the summer. When I posted a photo of it to my friends on Facebook, someone I have known since High School commented that she was in want of a baby gift, and loved the quilt. Unfortunately, upon checking in with the expectant parents, the colors and theme (Pink/Green/Brown with Owls.) was all wrong for their nursery. Their little girl’s room was to be done in blues and light greens, with an under-the-sea theme. My friend asked if I could do that, and I said of course I can!
I have loved this every step of the way, from picking out fun blue and green fabrics with a sea vibe, to seeing it all go together. There are a total of eight appliqué sea creatures and I just can’t pick a favorite, they are all so cute. The back is all the multi-dots like the binding, which bright and colorful and ties all the other colors together.
It is not often that I am sad to see my creations head off to the post office, but this one is definitely tough to say goodbye. This design gave me so many ideas, I can’t wait to do more quilts in different themes like trucks or animals or princesses. The possibilities are endless!
These adorable and impossibly tiny onesies are on their way to a customer for her twins due this week. This design turned out so cute. I was lucky enough to have a friend let me borrow her adorable twin boys for a photoshoot. My dear friend Amanda has started her own portrait photography business and helped me out with the camera work for these tiny models.
Oh, and some gratuitous baby feet! I LOVE baby feet.
You can find these here.
This is a baby quilt I made as a gift for a friend’s new baby girl. It wasn’t my first quilt, but it was the first one I added appliqué and I love how it turned out. I can see a lot of potential in dressing up quilts with appliqué, especially for babies and kids. I love picking fabrics for quilts and now I am having even more fun picking an appliqué design to go with the fabrics. So much fun!
