I haven’t done much sewing since Halloween, when our house started being ripped apart and my hardcore studying for the exam started. But I did get some sewing done before Halloween to make sure I was ready to welcome our new baby niece into the world!
For my sister-in-law’s shower, I made a simple quilt entirely from fabric that was in my stash!
It’s a pretty simple pattern but I love how happy it is, especially those owls and polka dots on the back!
I am such a sucker for fruit prints too.
I also made the usual giraffe toy and tag blanket with the leftover fabric. A quilt, giraffe, and tag blanket are starting to be my signature gift for new mothers!
To greet baby G in the hospital, I made a knitted baby blanket courtesy of the pattern from The Purl Bee.
I love how simple it is and how plush it feels. Plus it can be machine washed and dried!
I’ve been looking forward to Christmas break for so long that I can’t believe it’s here! Lots of cooking, baking, crafting, reading, and relaxing are in store for the next week or so. Even though I’m starting some online courses in January, I expect to be back more often than I have been to update you on what I’m working on! Here’s to the start of a new year!
