"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, …

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…
