Baby Rag Quilts

Hi everyone!

I have two new baby rag quilts to share with you today. These quilts have three layers ~ a top, batting and a backing and is made using cotton fabrics and Hobbs Heirloom Premium batting. The quilts are made of squares sewn together with the raw edges sticking out which are closely clipped. Then the quilts are washed and dried to create the signature ragging. They will continue to get softer and cuddly with each washing. Both measure 30″ x 40″.

The first one is a cute little quilt for a baby girl. It is made with “Sweet Birdie” fabrics by Sugar & Spice Textiles and other assorted cottons.

The second one is would be a sweet addition to a baby boy’s nursery. It is made with “A Little Bird Told Me” flannel by Northcott and other assorted cottons.

“Something For Baby” Sampler

Hi everyone!

Today I have another framed sampler using the “Something For Baby” Clear-Mount Bundle {Item #136791} from Stampin’ Up! {thank you Kim for loaning me your set}. It is done in Pool Party, yellow and cream. Of course, the colors could be changed up to suit either boy or girl or even made to coordinate with baby’s nursery colors.

The images were heat embossed before die cutting and adhering them to dry embossed layered squares. There are little bits of sparkle here and there as well. The sampler itself measures 8″ x 10 1/2″. The frame measures 9 3/8″ x 12″ {outside dimensions}.

The album measures 6″ x 11″ and has 6 2 page layouts ~ for a total of 12 pages {these include the inside of the front and back covers} to add your photos and journaling to.

“Zoo Babies” Sampler

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a framed sampler using the “Zoo Babies” stamp set {Item #130456} from Stampin’ Up!. It is done in Pool Party/buttery yellow and has an zoo animal friends theme. Of course, the colors could be changed up to suit either boy or girl or even made to coordinate with baby’s nursery.

This project really was a lot of fun! I did quite a bit of fussy cutting and used dimensionals to add depth to the heat embossed images before adhering them to dry embossed layered squares. There are little bits of sparkle here and there as well. The sampler itself measures 7 1/4″ x 9 1/4″. The frame measures 9 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ {outside dimensions}. It is available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs or by contacting me directly.

Owl Diaper Cake

Hi everyone!

Today, I have an owl diaper cake to share with you. It seems that anything “owl” is the popular trend right now. Diaper cakes make beautiful baby shower gifts or centerpieces for those who want to give something special that will be remembered. Or surprise the new parents with one when you see baby for the first time. A diaper cake is a festive (and useful) way to turn baby products into something magical and combine the practical with the unexpected!

This diaper cake consists of 42 useable disposable diapers (size 1, 8-14lbs), 1 bib, 1 receiving blanket, 1 infant washcloth and 1 pair of infant socks. It measures 13″ high (to the top of her ears) and is nestled in a wicker basket lined with shredded kraft paper.

*Available in pinks {shown}, blues or neutrals.
*All diaper cakes will be wrapped in clear cello with a 3″ x 3″ card/envelope and coordinating curling ribbons.
*PLEASE NOTE: The actual colors and patterns may not be exactly as pictured depending on what bibs, blankets, washcloths, sock colors /designs and ribbons I have available. However, I will always coordinate with the gender that you select.

*Now available at Sparkling Dahlia in Carstairs.
