Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everybody!!
Did you get any crafty sewing in over the holidays?
I didn't dust mine down until New Years Eve,
the little bits I photographed today 

After purchasing super soft sunggly fleece,
I thought I would made some small quilted blankets for baby strollers, buggies and car seats.
This one is 18" x 27"
Made with 5" squares (4 x 6)
Hopefully will made great gifts for newborns!
And to match...
Baby burp cloths, I guess not your everyday one, but the posh ones you take out!
(match your outfit!)
I made a shaped pattern for the neck
These use 1/2 a FQ 9 x 18 before sewn. 
If you are interested in the pattern, let me know.
And I can scan in and upload for you to download... 
Same baby burp cloths in Tilda baby pinks and mint.
 These are backed in cotton towelling
I will be finishing a quilted blanket in this one too.
When I get my iron back..........
Hubby lent it to our young neighbour last night and hasn't been home since..
If you are also back to work tomorrow,
I will be there with you in the office for 8am.........
Strong coffee, I probably will be starving hungry all day from being able to pick at food
any-time in the last 10 days!


  1. Love those tiny quilts. Just what I could do with for baby grandsons buggy. Have to sort through my stash and get sewing!
    Happy New Year and and may you continue to prosper in 2013.

  2. happy New Year to you too! Perfect prezzie for your grandson, and you don't use tons of fabric either. kx
