Finally Sewing for My Girls January 13, 2010

I finally started some sewing projects for my girls.

The first thing on my list are these pillows using the Brown Bear fabric. I only purchased 1 yard of this fabric since it was pretty expensive. I decided to use a pre-quilted fabric for the back. One for each of the girls. Now, I need to  stuff them and sew them closed.

Finally, my girls will get something that I sewed for them. Princess is always curious about all the other things I’ve sewn. She likes to looks at my projects but I always have to tell her that it’s not for her. Now, she will get a pillow of her own.

I’ll post a picture when I’m finally done. Now, I have to start on a birthday present for Baby’s friend who is turning 2 on Valentine’s Day.

This Is What I’ve Been Doing December 5, 2009

It’s been a while since I posted.

This is what I’ve been doing.

I ♥ these fabrics!

Today I found some prequilted red fabric that I’ll use with the Brown Bear fabric. I can’t wait to get started on that project for my children…but it will have to wait until I get my other projects done first.

Although I started my Christmas projects earlier this year, I still find myself feeling rushed. I can’t believe it’s already December! What happened to November?

 

Can’t Get Enough of Brown Bear November 9, 2009

My children love the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle. They enjoy reading it and having it read to them.

Before naps and at night, Baby picks up her Brown Bear board book and takes it to her room.

The girls also enjoy reading and retelling the story with their Brown Bear flannel board animals.

Then I found this!

Aren’t these fabrics cute? Well, I decided to use them to make a blanket and pillow for both girls. I’m so excited and I hope they will be too!

I’ll post some pictures when I’m done with the pillows and blankets.
