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.

    Those all turned out amazing, I need to have another baby just so I can make one of those like Jess'. And just goes to show, we need to have more sewing nights! He is one adorable TINY little peanut.

    Very cute blankets! You'll be glad you did those. Your little guy is so sweet. I totally understand your 'things to be sewn' list. I don't think mine will ever be completed at the rate I'm going.

    hi mandy.

    i just used the regular solid cotton colors at the fabric store that i liked. i tried to get as many of the kona cotton fabric in the colors i like because it's softer and better quality. hope this helps..

    hi riskeybusiness.

    i top stiched the trim on. and i have no idea how to do a ruffle trim. i usually just buy the trim all ready to sew on.
