Cow Flannel Rag Edge Baby Blanket

I have made it very clear that I am a procrastinator. When my sister was pregnant with her oldest, who is now 6, I bought this adorable cow flannel with plans to make her a blanket or something. It never happened. I ended up stealing the yellow flannel and making my youngest daughter a blanket, so I still had the pink cow flannel in my stash. Since my sister has now had another baby girl,…

Baby Shower Gifts

I have mentioned before that I LOVE sewing for baby girls! I was invited to a baby shower for my cousin and I am just so excited for them!!! My family does a joint gift in either a wagon or a lamper (yes, that is a real thing- it’s like a big laundry basket/hamper) and I wanted to sew some things to put inside. My mom made a beautiful crocheted blanket, so I didn’t do…

Baby Clothes Memory Bear Pattern and Tutorial

I really can’t take credit for this idea. A friend asked me to make a stuffed bear from the outfit her baby wore home from the hospital. She got the idea from Pinterest and it was a bad link so I can’t source it.   So, I had to come up with my own bear pattern. I used as few pieces as possible, but some extra stitching gives it more shape and allows it to…

Crochet Cow Hats

Last winter, I made a crochet cow hat for my youngest daughter and she LOVES it! It can be very hard to keep hats on kids’ heads and this one was a winner! This hat has gotten A LOT of wear! I have had to reattach a spot and tighten up the ears and wash it many, many times. Here it is over a year later… I planned on making a similar cow hat for…

WIP Wednesday ~ Bring on Spring!

OK. I am slacking on the blog posts again. Yes, I have all of these awesome projects here and I am only giving little teasers about them. One of these days I will catch up enough to start blogging about them for real. From last week…~No, still no pics of those doll quilts. I am not sure if our wood glue is any good- it might have frozen- so the doll bunk beds still need…

WIP Wednesday ~ Productive Week

I thought I would do another WIP Wednesday post to share what I have been doing around here lately.  I may not have blog posts up to prove it, but I have been super productive! I finished up 2 out of 3 doll quilts, but did not get any pictures of them yet. Those sampler ones took so long that they deserve a full blog post. 🙂 Plus, there is a piece on the doll…

Chunky Newborn Beanie Pattern

I love making a little something special for baby shower gifts. My family usually pools together and does a “welcome wagon” for the baby by filling a wagon with assorted baby gifts. I will have to blog about that sometime… pretty sure Mom has some pictures. Anyway, I have done rag edge flannel blankets, but the selection of gender neutral flannel is lacking. So, the surprise gender babies get a hat. I made THIS cute…

DIY Fleece Peacock Tutu Costume

Two years ago, our family went trick-or-treating as the Ninja Turtles. Last year, my son decided he was too old (actually he decided that before but we forced him/bribed him with the baby’s share of candy). So, everyone got to choose their own costume again. No theme. I chose for the youngest. I really, really, REALLY wanted to make a peacock tutu costume. I just love the colors and thought it would be pretty. However,…

Pink Lemonade First Birthday

My last baby is one year old.  Yeah, I am tearing up a little just typing that. Anywho… let’s move on now. Since it was our last (sniff, sniff) first birthday I went all out! I have always wanted to do a pink lemonade theme and these silly kids keep going and getting their own opinions about things. This was probably my last chance. We don’t usually go “all out” for birthdays. Just our family…

Rag Edge Flannel Baby Blanket Tutorial

These rag edge flannel blankets are my go-to baby gift. Sometimes I make bibs, burp cloths, and taggy blankets to make it a complete set. With just two layers of flannel, it is a nice weight without being too heavy. The rag edge is soft and popular with babies, too. 🙂 This is what it looks like after just one washing, but it will get more frayed over time. These are so simple to make.…
