Another Rag Quilt

This is one of the projects iv been working on inbetween working on my other quilt (see previous post of mine) its another Rag Quilt (similar to the one iv made previously) with just a few differant flannel fabrics in it. This was a gift for my good friend's (and aunty's!) little boy. I decided he deserved somthing special seeing as he is a boy born after 3 little girls! We went to perth on the weekend to meet him for the first time and he is adorable! Hopefully he will get some use out of this as he gets a bit older (they are great for play matts!)

Crocheted Blanket

My mom crocheted me a blanket and I always wanted to make one ever since. For my birthday I got a crocheting booklet and I just learned from there, Also with some help from my fellow friends. I made this blanket for my daughter Angelina, we painted her room a lite purple and so I thought this would go with it quite well. I needed a break from cross stitching and so I thought will just make a blanket and so at least I have something to do at nites. and now its done and I am actally proud of my handy work. But now that I am done I think I will start another one I will miss doing it at nites, just not sure how much wool is left in the stores but will have to go and check it out.

My daughter Angelina wanted a pic with her new blanket. So cute she says to me this morning when I gave it to her mom can I put it in my room on my bed.. they just love new things.

Craft evening was very nice last Friday, thanks Hen for having us! Thought I would post up the little project that I whipped up aswell. Our evening had a theme, to do something babyish, so I decided to make a little baby rattle, similar to this one I found online.

And this is my version, introducing to you Tinkin' Tweet;

So after spotting this pattern on ravelry it all fell together quite neatly. Thanks Sharelle for the bell too. I completed it all in the one evening, between chatting and cups of tea!

Elodie quite enjoys her new little toy!

Baby Pants

We had our monthly craft night last night which Hen will be sharing photos of soon - a baby theme this time. Seeing as I was taking photos of some projects for my Sewing Belle blog this morning I thought I would share my project from last night straight away - some little denim baby pants.

The pattern is a free (yay!) one from Made by Rae and they were really easy to make. I used denim for the pants and a bright cotton fabric that I bought on sale a while ago for the pockets and hem binding. Since comparing with some other baby clothes they are probably closer in size to a 000, next I hope to applique a plain onesie to match!
