I bought these super soft precut Quilt fabrics and what better way to use super soft fabrics than to use them for a Baby.

The quilt pack I bought had precut quarters and I sewed them all together into a cube. I left one side open, so I could fill it with polyester filling and a little bell. This way it would make a sound, when it falls, gets shaken or rolls over the floor. After filling it, I topstitched the open side close.

Baby Gift {All about the Baby}

A little gift for my best friends newborn. For the first time I created a tag blanket with an applique. I also created a pacifier holder and a giraffe rattle in the same colors as the blanket.

The tag blanket is for sensor play. Elliott loved to put his little fingers through the ribbons in his tag blanket.

I am  excited about the applique, it turned out good. I know a  “J” is not the most dificult letter and it was a bit easier than I thought it would be.

I used differnt colors and sizes of ribbon for the blanket. Some of it had texture and some were just smooth. The blanket is made out of blue white plaid cotton and mink fabric.

DIY Griaffe Rattle

Baby Rattle {All about the Baby}

Another Baby {All about the Baby} post, because I have been sewing just for the new babies which I have mentioned in my last blog post. So I thought I am doing a little series for the next couple weeks.

I’ve seen these rattles or stuffed giraffes on Pinterest before and kinda forgot about them until a couple weeks ago, when I picked up some bargain books. And tada in one of the books the pattern for the Giraffes was in it.

I just used cotton fabric for the bodies and I did add some jingle bells to my Giraffes and created little bags like they suggested in this blog post on Sew Mama Sew.

The pattern for the Giraffe I got from the book “Simple Sewing for Baby“.

Boy in handmade Mustache bandana

Bandana {All about the Baby}

It’s Baby Time again! This year a couple of my friends either just had a baby or are expecting. Soo exciting! And for me just another reason to try new things and sew more.

I bought this super cute mustache fabric and created a Bandana for the boys. One is for Elliott and the other one is for the newborn boy of my best friend at home in Germany. The one for the newborn is actually a little smaller than Elliott’s, otherwise he would just get lost in it.

Elliott is usually drooling away when he is teething and I just dislike putting a simple bib on him. He always wears Bandanas. Some of the Bandanas are actually from when I was a kid. It just looks cuter than an bib which you use for food.

The fabric was a fat quarter and I just cut it diagonal. For the back I cut up a plain white T-Shirt. The T-Shirt was new and free and I didn’t like the logo on it, so I would have never worn it anyway.

Again I used my new Serger, so easy and simple to create this. I top stitched only the top part of the bandana to close it.

This is a perfect project for any person who is either using their Serger for the first time or want to start sewing. When you start sewing for the first time, I would suggest to use flannel for the back instead of a knit jersey (T-Shirt fabric). Knits just roll up so easily and it gets frustrating to sew it on a normal sewing machine.
