Sewing for babies.

If you read the title and thought I was going to teach babies how to sew (like those "for dummies" books), congratulations, you're as weird as I am.

Everybody I know went and decided to get preggers all at once, so I am scrambling to think of things I can make that are not as time consuming (or costly) as a quilt for each lil' bundle of joy.

Sensory tag blankets.  My oldest helped me with these.  We made 3.  I'm sure most of you could figure this out but if not there is a tutorial for this on the trusty moda bake shop.
I made one ribbon-less variety out of minky and leftover blocks to...
This quilt.  I made string blocks.  I hated busy!  I decided to use some white and make them into HSTs.  It's kind of like a Roman Stripe except the stripes are perpendicular to the center line, not parallel.  Tutorial in the works...

Finally, as a mom I know every baby can never have too many...
BIBS (TUTORIAL HERE)!  Above is a cute print by Alexander Henry called Edgy Veggie.  It makes me squeal with cute overload.
some Riley Blake car fabric...
some Michael Miller fabric.

Can you tell most people are expecting BOYS?  One of those boys will be my new nephew!  Hopefully they will reveal a name soon because if they don't he will be stuck with NewBabyCousin forever...or Scooby...either way, it's not good.


  1. I just LOVE baby cousins :)

    Super cuteness too! I haven't had time to even turn my sewing machine on since before the 4th of July.

  2. Very fun ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Super cute! I made a tag blanket for my neice and it is her very favorite even after 7 months. She just started eating "real" food so thanks for the bib ideas...

    Jennifer :)
