Bundles of Babies

 I have been working hard this past week getting all kinds of baby goodies ready for a shower I am headed to on Saturday. I had another baby shower last Saturday! Whew! Like I said, Bundles of Babies! I have already given this particular friend some of my handmade baby items that you can see here a few years ago, so I didn't go overboard this time around.  Every baby is special and deserves some fun stuff. I did buy her a few fun new outfits, too. I just love baby girl clothes!




  You can see a little snippet of the handmade card I made to go with her gift.  Last time I didn't have time for the card so it was a super quick last minute throw-together, so I decided to spend a little more time on it this time around.  I will link the details about that when I get that post ready on my other blog. Okay...you can check it out here. Also, over that last few years I have had quite a few emails and questions about the shoes I make. The pattern is from a local quilt shop and the pattern is called "Beaded Baby Shoes". The quilt shop is called "Pipers Quilts and Comforts" and you can visit them at www.pipersquilts.com or call them at 801-484-5890. I hope that information helps. I also do custom orders as well and take payment through pay pal if you would like to order a pair from me.  You can see all of the different ones I have made by visiting the link on the sidebar called "shoes".






I made her quite a few headbands because I was on a roll. They are so fun to make and so easy, especially when you have everything out.







 I made a couple of bows, a couple of felt flowers and one with just a big daisy since I don't think I will use those daisies on anything else. LOL!







You can see the rag quilt I made her here. I have had the fabric for a few years now and thought it better get used for her.  I love how it turned out.



With the last baby ensemble I shared, I showed a little picture of a baby's first year tag book I made but the picture was awful, so I made a new one and you can see it a little better here. I will also be sharing the details of this on my other blog as well.

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…
