baby quilt for Ailey Jo

My BFF had twins! a few months ago (has it been that long?) and so I just had to make quilts for her precious babes. 

She decorated the nursery gender neutral- mostly blues. So I suggested that the quilts be the same but different- blues and coral for the girl and blues and green for the boy. 

When I saw this tutorial from the Moda Bake Shop I knew it HAD to be the one! 

I just looooove tiny squares, and this quilt features postage stamp blocks. I first saw these type blocks over on oh, fransson in this post

Of course I can't just follow a pattern. I have to make it my own. So I used the quilt tutorial for the measurements and the number of different blocks and so forth, but Elizabeth's method to sew the blocks together. Make sense? Ha!

Here is quilt #1:

And the quilting! Oh so wonderful! I sent them off to Utah to get machine quilted. Then they got sent back to me for binding and labels and cat hair and loving. Then I sent them back to Utah to their forever home!

I used the rest of the blues to make the binding. I kinda like random scrappy binding.

foxy fox fox

 photo IMG_1950_zps2e52364e.jpg
I made this foxy awhile ago. I hated it once I'd finished it, so I stuffed it away, out of sight.

I based it on Larissa's Mikey Monkey pattern, but smaller, and a fox.

I think I just don't like fleece. It sews nice enough, but looks cheap.

I mean- not cheap cheap, but how much time it took, the finished product doesn't look as nice as I would like it to.

I do like his tail.

What do you think?

Should I do more work and add it to the shop?

When I found the chihuahua pattern, I also found this one...

 photo IMG_1920_zps6e3c2d72.jpg
OMG so cute right????

 photo IMG_1927_zps499554dc.jpg
I could totally use this pattern to make a whale too....hmmm....???

And, there is also a more complicated pattern for a penguin that I spent a bazillion hours on only to figure out that it just doesn't fit together right. I guess there is only so much you can do when you can't read Japanese.

Meet Toufaha.

My neighbor and good friend Kimberly, has a little chihuahua named Dolce. Awhile ago, she told me that she would love a little plush chihuahua. I looked and looked for a pattern, but never found one.

Then I decided to look again- and I found one.

But it was in Japanese, with no english instructions- and it was about 3 inches tall. I sat on it for awhile.

Once I learned Illustrator a bit- I re-drew it, made it larger, added seam allowances. So for Christmas, I made Dolce a little girlfriend.

Kimberly has always wanted a little apple headed chihuahua, but after adopting Dolce (he's kind of a shit) she says no more chihuahua's are in her future. 

So this little sweetheart is perfect for her! (and Dolce is only allowed to love her from afar.)
