A little bit country..{baby collection}

A friend of mine asked me if I had time to make her a baby boy set for an upcoming shower. I agreed and I had such a fun time putting this set together. I really enjoyed it because it wasn't a traditional baby boy set and it gave me some freedom to mix and match patterns in some different ways. When it was all said and done, it definitely had a "Scottish Highlands" kind of vibe to it, which I love...especially because of all of my Scottish heritage.


I love the way the black gingham complements the different plaids and deer fabric. I always like when I put together something that isn't at all what I "normally" would do. The pacifier clip boasts a darling little baby deer button that is SECURELY attached (I wouldn't want to risk a choking hazard) and adds just the right amount of country charm. I chose to make the bowtie and pacifier clip out of the gingham because I used it the least in the bib. I really like striking a balance with color, pattern and print size.
The rag quilt was actually the starting point for the entire collection. My friend shared the invitation which showcased a darling buffalo check that I really wanted to incorporate into the design. Unfortunately for me, the store was wiped clean and didn't have any left. I was able to find this red print which was an acceptable substitute and I did fine the tan and brown buffalo check which balanced the proportions out nicely.






and...the shoes...love, love, love the shoes. They are always the perfect addition to all of my collections. I really like the way the chocolate brown stitching defines the shoe.







The base of the shoe is made from Kraft wool felt from PTI and the fringe detail is made from brown wool felt from PTI. The floss is DMC. 






The packaging always takes the cuteness factor up a few points. I know I always say it, but I just love the boutique-y feel it gives the set. The stamped images are from PTI and the pattern paper is from a mini pad from The Paper Studio found at Hobby Lobby.





The entire set includes: a rag quilt, bow tie, neck tie, pacifier clip, onesie, felt booties, baby's first year tag book, handmade card, and bib. You can read about the details of the papercrafted items HERE. You can follow me on Instagram @kellylunceford .

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, …

Dedicated to Dawn Blog Hop {New Little Bundle}

Welcome to Thimbles and Thread! Today I am participating in Blog Hop in dedication to Papercrafter, Product Designer for Papertrey Ink, and friend, Dawn McVey. She is an incredible woman and an inspiration to me! We are celebrating her as she has just had a much needed transplant that will help her immensely.
 Today we will be showcasing some of Dawn's amazing stamp sets and die cuts. I was lucky enough to be in need of some packaging for this baby ensemble that I put together, and Dawn's Made With Love stamp set and Tag Dies are the perfect choice! I created a tag using these products  to add on to the bib. I have lots more handmade papercrafted goodness for this set that you can see over on my other blog Flutter by Atomicbutterfly.
I created this baby ensemble for a sweet friend who is unexpectedly expecting her SIXTH child! LOL! I wanted to make her some fun things for her new little bundle. All of the fabric that I used on today's projects was bought in fat quarters at W…

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.
