Baby Coyote Quilt

Another Baby Quilt in the books :) I love making teeny tiny baby quilts, they are quick and easy and I don’t have time to get sick of them haha! I have a group of high school girlfriends that I have talked about here on the blog. We call ourselves the coyotes, which we made up when we were 14 so don’t judge… but one of the coyotes is having a baby and all coyote babies deserve quilts.

I was online looking for fabric and then came across the most perfect fabric that has ever been created for a coyote quilt ever!! COYOTES! Cotton and Steel to the rescue!

I got a charm pack of the Cotton and Steel Mesa line then I ordered extra coyote fabric and used five solid colors for the rest of the squares. It’s so super easy… I just cut 5.5″ squares and used 1.5 yds for the back.

We don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl so I went with pink binding and a navy backing. I also went with my typical machine binding :) Hopefully coyote baby #7 loves it!!

Winged Peasant Dress

IMG_0272

A few weeks ago, Bonnie Christine (from Going Home to Roost) sent me some fabric from her gorgeous new line, WINGED!I immediately knew it had to be a dress for my girl. Her line is with Art Gallery Fabric and they have the softest cotton ever. I got a yard of “Wingspan Melon” and the colors are even better in real life. The background color reminds me of melted ice cream :)

I used one of my favorite go-to patterns. The Pocket Peasant Dress from Whimsy Couture. It’s so easy, there is one pattern piece and  I can whip one up in less than 30 minutes! And I have… 4 times now :)

This picture doesn’t give justice to the buttery feel of this fabric. I usually don’t wash my fabric first because my fabric usually turns into a quilt but since having a girl, I now make a lot more clothing and it’s a must!

The colors are a little springy for this particular fabric in the line so I made the dress a few sizes bigger in hopes that it will fit perfectly this spring.

Baby Unicorn Costume

Introducing the World’s Cutest Baby Unicorn :)

unicorn costume

This year the kids went very easy on me for the Halloween costumes (which I haven’t decided if I like or not yet). The boys wanted store bought costumes but I still have one without an opinion :) She is only 4 months and can’t sit up alone so I wanted something that would look cute in her wagon when we go trick -or-treating. I decided on a unicorn and headed to the fabric store thinking about how I would make my  own pattern. When I walked in I spotted a Simplicity Pattern for animal hats, one of which was a Unicorn! Perfect right??

I wanted her to be all white so I picked out some soft white fuzzy fleece and some white yarn with silver specks in it. I also got some fabric for holiday girl dresses!

I used Simplicity Pattern  S0731. I did a little pattern hacking and love how it turned out. I added the yarn all the way down the back before sewing it up so it’s in the seam. I also added the pink felt in the ears and the tie around the neck.

Don’t tell anyone but I had to hot glue the horn on. I couldn’t get it to stand up straight by hand stitching, I never have been good at hand stitching. Depending on the temperature she might or might not wear pants with her white onesie. Isn’t it nice to have a pant-less option :) Happy Halloween, I hope it’s as magical as a baby unicorn!
