"Little One" baby ensemble

 Hello! It's me again with another baby ensemble, but very simple this time. I have all of the information about the box and card here if you are interested. I am sharing this ensemble here because it is a bit different than what I normally do and I thought some of you might be interested.
 I wanted to share the onesie with you and tell you a bit about how I did it. I wanted the pink headband pictured below to be cohesive with the onesie, so I used the same diecut for each one. I found a scrap of purple fabric that I wanted to use. Then I pressed the wonder under to the WRONG side of the fabric. I then die-cut the fabric using my die and cuttlebug. Once that was done, I peeled the backing from the wonder under and then pressed it onto the onesie. I chose not to stitch around the flower due to it's sharp points. If you have the patience, I would recommend doing that. This will probably fray on the ends once it is washed, but I like that shabby look, so you would have to decide what you are after. I would recommend using a small blanket stitch or just a regular straight stitch if you have a steady hand and are a good seamstress.

 Here is one of my trademark headbands, but they are just so cute. I think if I had a baby girl I probably wouldn't have to share so much here. I just really miss having a little baby girl!

 Here is another cute little headband with a cluster of three rolled roses using some dies from My Favorite Things.
I made a simple bracelet but took it up a notch by adding it to a card using a boutique stamp that I just love!

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, …

The {Flutterby} Basket

I've been having so much fun making all kinds of Easter and Spring projects! I whipped up a whole bunch of carrot treat boxes that you can see HERE. After I was done, I really wanted some type of basket to put them in. My sweet friend made me a really cute fabric basket years ago. I had asked her if I could have the pattern and she told me she had gotten it off of Pinterest. I decided that it would just be easier to come up with something myself. There are many different versions of this type of fabric container, but this is my version. I have included a tutorial if you'd like to make one yourself. I'm calling it The {Flutterby} Basket.
I'm planning on giving these to friends and family  filled with all kinds of Easter goodies, including my carrot treat boxes {of course}.
I had so much fun putting them together and they are perfect to hold all kinds of things! 

My tree has blossomed and it was the perfect backdrop to photograph a few of the different fabric combinations.


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…
