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.
We Love Dawn

 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 WalMart of all places. I have used it in the past, but it is just so darn cute!


The shoes are made using some grey anchor fabric. I have made LOTS of these shoes in the past which you can see HERE if you'd like. I changed things up a bit and added some bows, rather than flowers, on the toes that I just love!

If I have left over fabric, which I did in this case, I always like to add a tissue cozy to the gift. I have been making these for years using THIS tutorial, if you are interested!

The Cute as a Button Bibs are always a staple as well. I just love using a mixture of fabrics for a fun, shabby chic feel!


I normally go a little crazy making headbands, but I only made three this time. I always get my elastic at Hobby Lobby because they have an amazing selection.

I've packaged up the shoes in a clear box that I buy in bulk for these shoes. 

The card is handmade using some more of Dawn's sets and you can read about that over at Flutter by Atomicbutterfly. Thanks for stopping by today!

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.
