Baby Sewing...

We're all getting pretty excited about the new baby coming in about 7 weeks. (yes, we're counting) I've done a lot of sewing for my first grandson in the past few weeks. The inspiration fabric was a Moda line called Apple Jack. It has some beautiful colors and the girls are already having fun with the i-spy, ABC fabric.

Two floor pillows for the sisters to sit on in the baby's room (although I'm wondering if there may be some migration into their own rooms). These take only 1 yard of fabric each and some piping. Free tutorial: Floor cushion

A divided storage basket....
There are tons of free tutorials for these, but this one is a nice size (easily holds diapers) and I like the divider. Pattern: Divided Basket by Noodlehead

This would look more interesting if I had a crib - but it's a simple pleated crib skirt. Free pattern: Pleated Crib Skirt

My daughter chose the BreathableBaby mesh crib liner. I spruced it up with fabric binding and ties.

And a lap quilt for the Mama to use on chilly nights. Thank you to all of you for your encouraging comments on my big mistake. I've embraced the imperfection and am so pleased with the quilt. The pattern is by Lee from Freshly Pieced and included in the new book Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe. I reduced the size a bit and added a little more negative space on each side. 

It's quilted with machine guided wiggly lines, backed in Simply Color Sprigs and bound in solid aqua.

 And last but not least the baby shoes. Pattern: Reversible Baby shoes

I'm thinking he may be one stylin' baby. We can't wait to meet him!!!    . . . Cindy


  1. All your stuff is so great! Even the "unplanned" incident! It just shows it was made by hand by a Grandmother who loved him before he was even born! What a wonderful statement!!

  2. Adorable. All of it. Really wonderful. :)

  3. He is one lucky baby. You did a great job!

  4. Yay!!! He is one lucky baby and I'm a lucky mamma! It all looks great and I'm so thankful that you made all of it.

  5. Some beautiful things that I'm sure will be well used and loved when baby arrives.

    I just made a divider basket yesterday and love the pattern. I've got another 2 cut up and ready to useful!

  6. Great things for the new little one! All looks very useful and helpful as well as fun, cheery and bright. Thank you for sharing.

    Have a super great sewing and stitching day!

  7. Cindy, You have really been a busy bee. I cannot imagine a better dressed or equipped baby room. All your items are so useful and beautiful to boot. What a lucky lad and his mother should be very thankful she has you for a mom and grandmother. I love seeing what you create with all the new modern fabric lines.

  8. Wow That is absolutely awesome .... It's such a pretty floor cushions.
