More baby things...and "big kid" things too!

Posted by JTP at 6:10 AM
Yeah! I had my first "order"....and it was someone I didn't know! I couldn't believe it! Here is her order...a cute bib with minky fleece on one side and matching fabric for the burp cloth on the other side!

My sweet friend Melanie ordered another set of three for a baby gift. This bib is a store bought terry cloth bib with coordinating letters appliqued to match the burp cloth. Here are the gifts tied up with a cute bow and ready to be mailed off.... I hope they like them!

My college roommate has three precious kids that I LOVE to sew for...2 girls and a sweet baby boy! here are a few things I finished for them this weekend....

I love this whale fabric. William wore this in green last year and I found it in baby blue this year... there's even a little chest pocket on the front. I love to make custom things from fabric you find and can't live without :-) Check out the Fabric Finders website and they have a link to find stores in your area that sell their fabric....

This fabric is Fabric Finders too- it's a white pique with pink or blue hippos and black dots...I made "Katie" style jumpers for the girls and a "James" jonjon for the boy. I can't wait to see how cute they look this spring wearing these!

This is a modified "Anna" style jumper where I cut the bodice and add white pique fabric and coordinating piping so I can monogram the dress. Sometimes I love the fabric (this is Fabric Finders too)...but it's too busy to monogram so this is an easy way to fix that "problem." :-)

I did the exact same thing to these dresses, but if you look closely you can see that the dresses are piped with the fabric I made the jonjon out of...so they coordinate, but aren't too matchy-matchy.....

So that was this weekend. I was busy...but finished a lot of stuff I had cut out, but just hadn't "finished".... I'd be happy to show you some of the fabric I have available... or to make something for you out of something you find. Ebay is another great place to "shop" for fabrics...Search Michael Miller, Robert Kauffman, Fabric Finders, etc. I love JCaroline Creative online...Or if you live close to Gastonia, NC Mary Jo's is the BEST fabric store around!!! I'm getting some new applique patterns for tee shirts soon- check back later this week :-)
