Here’s yet another Hello Kitty post.
I’m not the only one who’s fallen in love… I found that Mega Bloks and Liberty London have as well.
So when I found out that someone I knew was having a baby GIRL (it’s been nothing but boys around here for what feels like forever!) I cracked out the Hello Kitty again.
Man, I wish I’d had time to iron that… oh well, first wash will work that right out, and from what I hear about babies it isn’t likely far away. It’s backed with a fuchsia minky dimple dot.
The bibs are backed in the same minky – everyone I’ve ever done this for just loves how soft it is and loves that they can attach and unattach the bib single handedly withe the velcro.
Finally, I backed micro-fiber cloths in Hello Kitty, with a loop to hang it by.
And then roll it all into a Hello Kitty bag. (I almost got one of these for myself… too cute!) Notice how the bag has exactly the same images as the bib on the far right? Total co-incidence… happy accident. 😀
me… on Sesame Street!
When I first heard that I was going to be an “Auntie” again, I found this perfect Sesame Street flannel to make some baby stuff. When I heard about 6 months later that I WAS an Auntie again, I thought I should probably get started on said baby stuff.
This picture was actually taken after I gave them the blanket… I’d been up late finishing it and hadn’t had time to photograph it, so the picture is really quite horrid. But I think you get the picture – it’s a flannel rag quilt with a giant center panel.
This might just be the coolest part of the quilt. Centered at the bottom of the panel in the selvage it reads “C 2011 Sesame Workshop”. My nephew was due to be born in early 2012 but due to some complications he ended up being born right at the end of 2011. When I saw the selvage I thought it was just too perfect and I left it in. Most of the time it gets covered by the rag seam, but I know it’s there.
Don’t you just love that nail polish too? To me it looks like a 50’s kitchen appliance.
Anyways, here’s the back of the quilt. Nothing fancy, but there was a LOT of square cutting involved…
Then bibs, cloths, and a stuffed taggy block… and yes, it jingles. 😀
A friend of my husband just had a baby on 11-11-11… I know, so cool, huh? He wanted me to make a diaper cake and “maybe some of those clippy things?” hahaha.
I dug through my fabric pile and found the space invaders and pac man ghosts, and thought it was totally perfect for this baby of a geek, which in turn will most definitely be a geeky baby.
Space Invaders bib with matching minky clips
Pac Man bib with matching minky clips
I don’t know how I scrounged up enough scraps to do all of these clips AND back the bibs, but I did some creative placement! I think it’s safe to say that the minky is not necessarily all on the grain…
For a 5th clip, I used some of my treasured Tetris fabric that I got from Spoonflower last year.
And lastly, a receiving blanket to tie the entire cake together… bicycle flannel… I didn’t have anything geeky and Michael Miller flannel is just so soft after it’s washed!
