Can you tell I had a couple of days off from work, soccer, and tee ball?? Yessirree...did some sewing here. Felt great to be in the sewing room, too. I loved every minute of it.
So, I had a baby shower gift to make. First up, I made this quilt from the Moda Bake Shop. You can find the recipe here. I really liked the pattern. Very easy to follow and everything seemed to line up for me pretty well. I used a bit of Lake House scraps that I had along with some Kona solid grey. I was inspired by many quilts I have seen and liked on the blogs with grey.
Next, I personalized these burp clothes. The frog design is from SWAK embroidery.
Finally, I had some backing material left over and I really wanted to use these scraps up. That seems to be my thing these days. So, I made a storage basket out of them (doubles as a gift bag) using this tutorial. Now, you should know that I did not have any plexiglass on hand...so in addition to the craft fuse I used on the outer and lining, I just put a triple layer of adhesive batting, adhesive batting, and craft fuse pellon (a 8 X 10 square) on the interior of the outer basket layer. It is super sturdy as well as super cute. I also added 12 inch handles on the ends, and I omitted the hanging basket loop. This was perhaps one of the easiest projects that I have ever made. No joke.
