Photos from December and January

As promised, here's the stuff I've made since you heard from me in December.


Baby bib for baby Sebastian. I'm not super happy with how this turned out, namely, the embroidery. I'd never done embroidery before and it ended up being too hard to read. I did a top stitch on the bib using my blind hem foot, which was a tip my sewing instructor told us. It gave the bib a professional look and a few people thought I'd bought it.


This took up most of my time in December. I made this for my boyfriend's mom and fiancĂ© and I am very pleased with it. The fabric is Orchard House by Jeanne Horton for Windham Fabrics. I was adamant about finding fabric the recipients would like. At first, I wasn't a big fan of the almost upholstery-esque patterns but by the time I had finished the quilt, I was having separation anxiety about giving the quilt away!


This was my third embroidery undertaking, the second one I did from Little Stitches. I whipped up this little coaster for my sister and trust me, it's not meant to be a showcase of any of my skills. I even ripped the top of it accidentally. It was nice to do a bit of free motion quilting as I hadn't done any since my first quilt.


These were my second and fourth embroidery projects, respectively. You can see I changed the stitch on the pink thread as I liked the satin stitch look better. These are mini pin cushions that fit into the sewing kit my mom and I have (we have the same one).


Oh look, a rare photo of me in it. This was the pillow case I whipped up last night with my mom. I got us both pillow case kits after I saw some cute cat fabric I thought she'd like. My fabric coincidentally matches the quilt I made, which is why I picked that kit. It took my mom and I a few hours to make these but theoretically, it's supposed to be very quick. We had a few hiccups along the way; namely, my mom did. Something like not noticing all the layers weren't pinned down until after
she'd sewn the cuff on.

Honestly, I thought I had more photos to share. Whoops. I still have yet to take a photo of the pajama pants I made and I do want to do a recipe post sometime soon. I guess the backlog of photos seemed bigger in my head.

  1. That quilt is amazing!!

    Maybe next time you embroider a bib with such a detailed fabric, put a solid colored rectangle in the background of where you put the name? like a brown the same color as the background of the pattern. I really like that pattern though.
