Shamrock quilt

It’s finished! I made this little baby quilt as a fundraising item for Lyons Academy of Irish Dance (D and the Bean both dance here). My friend Sandi, @missplanner on instagram, was kind enough to share her shamrock block dimensions with me, so I whipped out the top in one night (patchwork is cotton, solids […]

ROAR for Crockett

I need to wash and dry this puppy so I can get good crinkly shots of it, but it’s useable now, which is why it’s in use on the floor this very moment. Crockett likes it. Midnight likes it. I like it. YAY ROAR!

A quilt for Kai

whipped out a UFO and bound it quickly so I could gift it to a surprise arrival. (Our friends got the call Friday that their new baby was ready to adopt on Sunday, I found out on Monday). it was sort of an idea tester quilt, so it’s definitely not perfect, but hopefully its imperfections […]

Radiance baby blanket

So, Robert Kaufman has this new fabric, called Radiance, that’s a silk cotton blend. SUPER soft and silky satin. It’s gorgeous, but a little intimidating. slippery. so, I, uh, *suggested* that it might be helpful if I worked with it so I could tell my friends/the world what it was like. I started with something […]

Little things

Knitted leggings for the baby guy. matching pajama pants for all three kiddos from Dr Seuss flannel (and a coordinating blanket) some embroidery (went on a bag as a gift for my friend Lori, master knitter)

Baby Crockett at the Circus

I really really love the fabrics Marie Perkins of Print and Pattern does for Robert Kaufman.  LOVE. As soon as I saw the mock-ups for The Circus, I got inspired. I got the fabrics, and cut them up in July? June? no clue. OMG it was tedious cutting. I totally lost steam. But when I […]

Bags n babies

D and I stopped by the new Daiso Japan store in Torrance last week. they have cute little metal clasp frames for $1.50, so I bought one and tried it out. I suck at glueing. and next time I’ll make my own shape (less pear-y), but this time I followed the pattern that comes with […]

Another nursing-dress muslin

I had the sick 6 y/o take these pics, so my apologies for the quality (but yay him for being my photographer!) I made this dress up last night, based sorta on the schoolhouse tunic I wore yesterday. it’s another wearable muslin (this fabric is by Darlene Zimmerman for Robert Kaufman, and is a 1930’s floral ditsy […]

Changing pad

I needed a simple changing pad that would easily fit in my bag so I made one (pencil for scale), using this awesome red/white print (Pop Posies by Nancy Mims for Robert Kaufman, coming soon). I love this print. It looked like plus signs to me until I used it, and now it looks like […]

Baby pants, etc

there’s something ridiculously appealing about baby butts. .. He’s way too small for the basket, but it’s so cute, we use it in the front yard when his big sibs want to ride bikes out there… he’s so teeny and smooshy! he’s had his first photoshoot (for the sleep sack pattern I still haven’t actually […]
