baby shower gifts

So you saw the shower I co-hosted for my pal Aimee, right? So….I kind of went a little handmade crazy for her present. I couldn’t help it! Baby girl stuff is just too much fun to make.

My favorite part of her gift was this little quilt I made for baby Penny. It’s not pieced, obviously, just two yards of fabric layered with batting and quilted, with an off white binding.

The fabrics are from Joel Dewberry – Modern Meadow – Honeycomb in Pink and Dogwood Bloom in Pink. both from my fab sponsor, Lily Bella Fabrics!

I quilted around some of the flowers-this is one of the better ones…please don’t laugh….hard, at least.

I also made her a fairly cute Bapron-I got this fabric in the remnant bin at Joann-isn’t it adorable? It’s home dec weight fabric, which makes for a nice sturdy bapron. The trim fabric is Oliver and S Roundabout Dots in Frothy Pink. From my equally fab sponsor, Lark Cottons!

Using my Go Baby cutter, I made these easy and quick felt clippies to match the outfits I made. I just love how quick and easy these are. I just wish I hadn’t lost my stash of clippies. Seriously. They seem to have vanished. I even cleaned my sewing room and…nada. (I swear it eats craft supplies sometimes)

You saw this one….

 

and this one too. I added in some princess Golden Books, a little purse toy, and a binky clip I made ages ago.

So there it is. *jazz hands*

  2. Too cute!
    Did you know you can use free motion sewing mode on your sewing machine to make machine quilting around those yummy flowers easier?
    Good luck with it.

  3. How cute collection you have!! Just searching for good dresses for my friend ‘s daughter. I hope it will be best gift for her birthday, it is on this week.

  4. I love what you did with the quilt! I have wanted to do something like that but… haven’t yet. I also haven’t had a reason. I’m gonna look up free motion sewing for my machine like Sweet Pea suggests.

  5. I bet Aimee was over the top thrilled with the gifts you made!
    Everything is just darling.
    I really like the quilting technique you used on the quilt, simple but very effective in texturing.
    So cute the way you carried the pink and gray theme into your gifts too.

  6. Great job! I love the quilt. I have been wanting to play with quilting but haven’t quite gotten around to it. Or maybe I’m just still chicken. lol
