Let’s make this week SewMod Baby week! Babies need Christmas presents too and what better gift than the softness of a Minky blankie.

We’ve made 3 new blankies for the Etsy Shop using the pattern on our tutorials page. These make up in about a hour or two and I’m sure everyone out there has a charm pack that’s waiting patiently in your stash for it’s turn to be made into something! If not, or your running out of time, these are available in the shop starting today.

Pure Baby, 36″ x 40″. Using a Pure charm pack by Sweetwater. A calming baby boy’s blankie that you’ll wanna snuggle your bitty one in!

Bliss Baby, 36″ x 36″. Made using Moda’s Bliss charm pack by Bonnie & Camille.

And Hoo Baby, 35″ x 35″, made in pink but we also can make this in the blue too.

We have other ideas for baby week, including another quilt. So hang with us this week for some ideas to whip up for the little babe’s on your gift list!

Only a couple more pics from the booth to go.

Another one of our good friends took on the sample of Madeline.

She did a great job of picking the fabrics out for this to be oh, so girly. But, I already knew she would. She has a great eye for those things. The background is Art gallery’s Oval Elements in Petal Pink. The dress is out of the Taza fabric line.

The quilt can be made into a wall hanging or framed without it’s border. I think it’s adorable framed! It reminds me of  pink bubblegum.

We found the pattern for these awesome needle cases over at SewPrimKhris’s blog and our friend Kelly whipped them up for us. They came out sooo cute. Just some scraps, felt, Velcro and a button. Great gifts for all your sewing friends. Each segment in the needle case could even be labeled for each needle size. I’m always getting mine mixed up.

Last is the Hoo Blankie. It has a Minkie backing for the cuddly, snuggle factor and a yard of fabric for the front. Easy, breezy blankie and it comes with a free pattern.

As promised, this week I am going to show you some of the projects that we had on display in our booth at the quilt show. Better late than never, right? These are things that friends helped me get together while my arm was broken and I didn’t get a chance to blog about. Well, my arm is feeling much better and I can type with both hands now. Physical Therapy made it feel so much better. So, back to blogging. I have no excuses anymore!

My mom made up sets of handmade crochet flowers for us to sell. A set of 3 in approximate sizes 2.5″, 2″ & 1″. She made 8 different sets. The variegated purple is my fave!

She also made individual ones for us to use in kits. This is the sweetest Little Wallet kit. It only requires 2 fat quarters. And who wouldn’t want to be original and have a cute crochet flower instead of a button! These wallets whipped up really fast. I didn’t want to stop making them. Great stocking stuffer, don’t ya think?

And then we kitted the slippers with flowers also.

Lots of ideas for these cute flowers…hair clips and headbands for girls, scrapbooking, quilts. We even attached a tiny one to the cute appliqued owl for the Hootie & Friends quilt kit.

Each kit comes tied with a crochet flower…so cute!

Thanks Mom!

This quilt!

We used the Riley Blake, Hoo’s In The Forest, fabric to make this super easy baby quilt. A charm pack, a few yards of fabric, throw in some appliqued cuteness, & a couple hours of sewing and you’ve got an adorable keepsake!

I appliqued strawberries in one corner and a sweet little owl in the other.

Paige designed SewMod labels for all our handmade items. The are just printed on this fabric paper we found at the craft store.

I used pinking shears to trim the edges and sewed it right into the binding.

This is a really inexpensive and easy quilt. The kit is available for $29 and that includes the backing and binding. It’s available in 3 colorways, yellow, blue, and pink. This quilt is going to be part of our booth at the show but also will be available in our new store coming soon on Etsy …

This shop will be dedicated to handmade baby items, fabric and patterns. We’re pretty excited about launching this as part of SewMod! We have sooo many things going on, my head is spinning!!

Sorry for our lack of blog posts lately. It’s summer here in Chicago…finally, and I gotta say, it gets harder and harder to do any work inside when you know that you only have a short window of hot weather to enjoy.

But, I have managed to make some more gumdrops:) We had a couple of custom orders last week. This one is a large gumdrop made from the Hoo line. Alternating pink plaid and sweet flowers with the strawberries on top. So cute!

And my neighbor requested a small volleyball one for her 13 year old niece’s birthday.

Since it’s so nice out, I think I’ll take Daisy and my camera out for a walk and see if we can get some good flower shots…I’ll share my finds tomorrow.

Good Morning everyone:)

Hoo’s In The Forest? Cute little deer, wide-eyed owls, hedgehogs, all kinds of forest critters!

And what do they like to eat? ….apples, cherries and strawberries!

The full order, all 23 bolts in this collection, arrived yesterday. It has 4 main colors to it…blues , greens, yellows and pinks, along with some plaids, daisies , and solids.

Cute & whimsy!

We also had some charm squares from Hoo and Christmas Candy come with it.

I hope everyone enjoys their Friday. I’m going to spend mine working on adding these to the Etsy shop and later having dinner with Paige.

Happy sewing!
