So much time has passed since I last posted. I got the much needed opportunity to spend time with my nephews for an entire month! I did not waste any sewing time though!
I made a blanket for my cousin’s newborn who came just hours after her baby shower!
The materials came pre-cut from a Fabric.com kit. I added my own cotton batting and grey satin material as the binding. It was my first quilt and I want to make many, many more!
The kit came with all of the necessary materials, except batting. I choose to bind with the satin because I wanted a cleaner look. It came beautifully packaged and was a great way to try different minky materials without wasting materials or having to make more than you wanted.
I also made her a onesie (body suit). Simplicity 2459 is a rather interesting looking pattern at first glance. VERY FRILLY dress with a cute little jumper for a boy. I was only interested in the onesie. I LOVE the collar and in the right material, this pattern is amazing!
I used a leopard print knit from my stash. I intend to make many more, as its easy to use up leftover materials from making my new obsession… Something I will talk about later, after I get better pictures. My cousin loves both and it felt good to sew for another person, maybe I’ll do more..
