Quiet Book

I decided to make a quiet book for our little one who will be here in October. Thank you Pinterest for all the inspiration!












Baby Quilt

I've been meaning to post for weeks, but unfortunately I've been busy being lazy. A few months ago I made this for my friend Ashley when she had the cutest li'l baby girl named Ivy!




Happy sewing...

Greetings! It's been a while since I've posted. Oops. Here's my latest project. I made it for my mother-in-law Renee for her birthday.

There's a zipper pocket, Velcro pocket, a square for pins, and a little pocket for notions or other miscellaneous items.



For the back I did "peek-a-boo" pleats. I got the idea from this tutorial.


And it ties up nicely so you can take it anywhere! I had fun with this mini project. Hopefully this summer I will have more to post!

Mario Quilt

I couldn't post this earlier because it was Brandon's Christmas present...but at last, here it is!



Some fun facts....

I used all thrift store materials (t-shirts, fleece blankets, and a bedsheet)


I designed this pattern on an excel spreadsheet. Each square is 1 inch x 1 inch. I cut a lot of squares.


Mario finished!

This coin was made from an ASU t-shirt...



For the back I did an old school Nintendo design out of fleece blankets. My friend Ashley gave me this idea!


It was fun watching Brandon open it Christmas morning. This was a fun project, but it required a lot of patience!
