Little Gifts for Little Ones…
Thanks to everyone for entering The Vintage Pearl giveaway! I’ll have a winner announced tomorrow!
I can tell I’m starting to get “old” because there are less babies around me. It seemed like a few years ago all of my friends were having babies, and I was always making baby things (which, by the way, are some of my FAVORITE things to make!). I guess we are all moving on to other phases of our life now, because I don’t get to make as many baby things anymore. (maybe I’ll have to put some stuff in the shop… I miss it a bit!)….
Recently I made a couple of gifts for some friends with babies… As is typical for me, one of the babies is months old now and I am just getting stuff done! The other one is for a friend who is due to have her first baby girl very soon!
I made a version of my twirly skirt
and matching onesie. The measurements were pretty simple and it only took 3 fat quarters to make. I was happy to break into some of my new Sandi Henderson fabric!
I think it will fit a 6 month old baby, but I’m not sure, I don’t know any 6 month olds to try it on!! (see I told you I was getting old!).
The matching onesie has a fabric flower and a glitter button of course! (I don’t think I hardly make anything anymore without a glitter button on it!).
The directions for the flower can be found on my post on Moda Bake Shop
If you are interested I can post the directions for the baby skirt… It was pretty much the same as the dolly skirt
but with a wider waist and a longer skirt.
(bad flash photo…. sorry)
I also made a set of burp cloths (and some embroidered bibs that you can’t see very well) for a cute little baby boy. I used Amy’s tutorial on Diary of a Quilter
and it was sooo much easier!! (the stars are just raw edge appliqued on).
Keep an eye on the etsy shop this week! Traci is listing more pendants (including custom ones) and I’ll be listing another pattern, the fabric scrapbooking kits… plus a couple of surprises!
