Beautiful New Baby ensemble

 Yes....it is another baby ensemble. The majority of sewing I do is for babies. Can you tell I love them? I have done some sewing for my own baby; a few quilts for his room so I will share those with you soon. In the mean time, here are some fun baby items to share with you. Yes....they are the same as what I usually show, but like I have mentioned before, I show them so you can see the different fabrics and things. My pictures aren't the best because it was very, very overcast on this particular day. I put the shoes in the window to get some light.



I loved the fabric for this whole ensemble. It is 3 Sisters by Moda. Love, love, love. I think I know why my last three babies have been boys. I would be going shoe, headband crazy if I had a girl!!!






 I like to coordinate all of the headbands with the fabric.







 These are some of my favorite to make; rolled ribbon flowers.
 I diecut the fabric using the same die cut that I used on the inside of the card which you can see on my other blog.  I also added a rolled fabric rosette.



The recipient had told me that she was partial to smaller headbands so I obliged....on one and only one. I know she will like the bigger ones as soon as her baby's head gets bigger. Well...at least I hope so! LOL! You can see the detail on the bib better here, too.

I had a lot of fun working on this....like i always do. If you have a baby gift you want to make, my advice is to plan ahead of time and work on one thing each day. It makes the whole process so much more enjoyable. She told me how much she liked everything, so I am happy!

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…
