Kitty Shirt

Meow!

I had this older sweater from Old Navy. I had actually bought it with the thought that I would screen print something on it.

A few months later here we are.

The sweater even has a nice texture to it. Little neon color points. I thought it would be purrfect for a kitty.

I didn’t take a picture of the stencil or the stenciling process. 🙁

But heres the kitty!

Bunny, deer ‘n fox. Ohmy!

The last of the stroller quilts!

I had originally planned to use these triangles on a quilt of their own. After making the frenchie stroller quilt I quickly changed my mind!

Since I had already cut out the triangles it made the sewing part go really quick.

I did two in a bright true blue and one in a spring yellow.

The most binding I have made at once! Had to take a picture! Might be about three yards of binding!

A friend calls it spaghetti. The spaghetti of binding. hehe.

Again all the quilting was just to show the outlines of what was happening on the front. I love the simplicity. Perfect for a little kid! All three of these will be listed on etsy!

Circus Stroller Quilt

For this stroller quilt I used fabrics from the scrap bin.

This time I used Michael Miller, Textured Basics by Patty Young. 

I last time I used this fabric line was for pot holders!

I had smaller scraps so I used them to make half rectangle triangles. I love this look. Different from the normal half square triangle.

I wanted the quilt to be fun. I made the half rectangle triangles look like a circus platform and added a little French Bulldog.

Not to over due the cuteness I added a banner to the top. Super cute!

The back i made a stripe down the center with the same fabric I used for the French Bulldog. For the quilting I outlined the bulldog and banner and created lines going up the side. I love how simple it is yet all the detail is there.

Wicket of course loves it cause its warm. She doesn’t care that there is a little Bulldog on it.

Headbands

I made a few headbands to help get me through the awkward growing hair out period.

These are pretty simple to make.

I used Ribbon, lace and elastic. A quick few minutes of sewing and voila!

For the lace headband I folded over the edge of my lace and folded the elastic into the edge fold. I also used a wider piece of elastic than the ribbon headbands cause the lace is wider. I added a few decorative stitches to keep the elastic from coming loose.

 

The lace I used is actually from an old skit I took apart. I never liked the skirt anyways! But I loved the lace. Its a nice minty color. swoon.

I enjoy these. I hope to get more ribbon and make a few more.
