Sweet Little Baby Boy Gift Ensemble

As promised, here is the baby boy gift set that I have been working on this week!  I had a lot of fun making each item.  Originally I went to the fabric store to find flannel to make a rag quilt. I fell in love with all of these cute prints, but as I was getting my fabric cut. I noticed that they had the same fabrics in cotton. I quickly ran over and grabbed two prints that would work well for ties.  Once I was done making the ties, I had enough fabric left over for a bib, but only the two prints. One more trip to the fabric store remedied that and I grabbed two more prints to make the bib. My cute little 3 year old now wants a car tie and a car bib.  He put his stamp of approval on this ensemble! I added a picture of the coordinating tag and card that I made as well.  I love pulling it all together! Have a great day!
The two ties were made from a tutorial I found on Pinterest. If you search on Pinterest for baby tie tutorial, you should be able to find it. I really like it because they turn out nice and it is a really easy pattern to follow! I actually made two more ties this afternoon for my boys to wear to church on Sunday for St. Patrick's Day. They work up really quickly and are quite addicting.

I know you are probably sick of these bibs, but they are one of my signature gift items. If you have a baby you can pretty much count on getting one of these bibs from me.
Again, another one of my signature baby gift items. I always feel so good when I see the recipient of one of my quilts with it in their car seat every time I see them.  I apologize for the wrinkly look, but I had it rolled up and it was hard to get smooth.

I love the things you made! Is the quilt flannel, and you wash it to make it shredded looking at the seams?

Yes...that is right. I have a rag quilt tutorial on my sidebar if you would like to see it.

Dots and Damask Rag Quilt

As promised, here are the photos of the rag quilt that I made for my baby. It has been sitting here done for over a week now, but the sky has been so hazy that getting a good photograph has proven to be tough. Today, the sun has peeked through for a while so I took the opportunity to snap a few photos.
I have a bajillion blankets from my oldest, but of course the new baby needs new things that are just for him. I had a lot of fun sewing this and picking the fabrics. I asked the sales lady at the quilt shop if the patterns looked too girly and she assured me that they didn't. Now that it is done, I don't think it looks girly. They had the same fabrics but with pink and brown and I am itching to make a girl one as well. I don't know of anyone who is having a girl, but I could always make it and save it for the next baby girl.
This particular quilt is 8 squares across by 8 squares down, rather than the 9 that I normally do. I was one square off from having enough to do 9, …

Corduroy Rag Quilt

I can't believe it has been over a year since I have posted anything here. The funny thing is that the project I am sharing today is also a rag quilt. My SIL is having a baby girl in the next week or 2, so I wanted to get some things made for her before I began on my own baby projects. I am hoping to post a bit more here since I have some fun projects lined up to make. I don't know what it is about babies that gets me motivated to sew. I also have a few Holiday projects that I am hoping to get done as well.

I purchased this baby wale corduroy a couple of months ago at Hobby and Lobby and fell in love. I wasn't sure how well it would work up into a rag quilt, but the results were fabulous. As I mentioned in my previous post, flannel has a tendency to pill, which drives me nuts. The corduroy is just as soft and perfect as it was prior to washing. The only "complaint" I have with the corduroy is the mess that it makes. I was covered in tiny pieces of fabric, my craf…

Handmade Handwarmers Tutorial

Hello and welcome to Thimbles and Thread, where today, I will be sharing a quick tutorial on a fun wintertime craft I enjoy making for family and friends. To start off, you will need to gather your supplies: Fun and festive fabric, rotary cutter, self-healing mat and quilting ruler, scissors, sewing machine, coordinating or matching thread, funnel and rice. I always like to have some Christmas music playing while I'm crafting, but that step is optional! Ha ha! 








You will want to cut your squares to your desired width. This year I cut them into 4 1/2 inch squares. I've made them 4 inch squares in the past.






The red warmers on top are 4 inches versus 4 1/2 inch warmers underneath. I thought I would show you both so you could choose which size you'd prefer. 4 inches is perfect size to clasp in your hand, but I ended up liking the bigger ones in the end.







Here you can see the difference between the 2 sizes before they are sewn.






Once you have your squares cut, you will need to place t…
