blankets for mr. thomas …

May 15, 2011


can you believe how tiny my little thomas is still?  he has the cutest little chicken legs, if i do say so.
anyhow, i wanted to share a few blankets i sewed for the little guy.

this first quilt is my absolute favorite.  i love all the colors and the stripes!  the other side is a soft white minky fabric.  my friend jessica made a darling one for her little girl after she was inspired by a cute bib from modern thread.  one of these days i’ll have to make jess post a tutorial when she’s not so busy, because they really are cute and not too hard to make.

this yellow, black and white blanket i started originally for my little norah, i even bought the cutest pleated ruffle yellow trim for it.  well, it goes to show you how great i am at finishing sewing projects.  so, i finished it for mr. thomas.  it is also yellow on the other side.

it’s also nice for taking pictures of the little peanut.

this last one i used an amy butler fabric i had lying around forever.  i made it small on purpose, it’s the perfect size for car seats.  it’s a soft off white minky fabric on the other side.

wow! i proud of myself for actually finishing a few sewing projects around here.  you’d seriously die if you saw my list of things i need to sew that i just haven’t gotten around to doing… it’s pretty sad.

an update …

October 16, 2010


Photobucketi’m starting to make a dent (well, a tiny one) in my fall to do list.

here are a few things we’ve managed to get done so far.

and, many are going to be checked off my list soon!

* decorate for halloween, check!
* go to gardner village to see the witches, check! (wow, was it packed, i forgot it’s fall break for schools)
* make homemade chili for the first time, check! (although, i’m still on the search for a good recipe, any suggestions?)
* finish sewing norah’s halloween costume, check! (i just made the cape, it has a hood too! the little dress i found at a thrift store a while back, making it an easy decision for me to do little red riding hood! she’s going to be so cute! i’m thinking of doing a small white apron too? any thoughts?)

i’m just loving fall so far!

…and, p.s. thanks design mom for the mention on babble about my virtual halloween party post!
