Sewing

I was on a sewing roll today. Well actually all weekend! I just love when I have new material and new ideas!

Yesterday I spent the afternoon teaching Mindy how to quilt. We are making a "Man Blanket" for her husband. And let me tell you it is manly. Just the size will blow your mind 6 feet by 9 feet!! And this isn't for their bed, just for him to use. He picked out all the fabrics and we just smiled and said over and over "it's a man's blanket" We did get the boy's to come into Porter's!! It was a success!








I have been working hard on a quilt for my GOD-DAUGHTER. Mindy is having a baby girl (Madison) in May! I cannot wait. I have been making her a quilt that I designed myself! The letters are all applique and then I stitched around each letter! I finally finished the top! We are both teachers so I thought the ABC's were appropriate. This is for her crib bedding.










Then later this week I am going to a baby shower for someone I work with. She is having a boy. I recently bought a book called "One Yard Wonders" and I made all of this with one yard of fabric. Cheap fabric too! I thought the frogs we so cute and fun! I made a tag/tactile blanket, a bib, a pair of booties, 4 burp cloths and 4 "wee wee wigwams" (tutorial on Make it of Love it!) and then appliqued my favorite froggie on a onesie! Not bad for a yard of fabric!

And finally I am throwing a shower for Mindy and made these little diapers. On the inside it says

Party Pooper!!
