A Few More Finishes
I have a few more finished things to show to you today. Still plugging away on the Christmas list and I can't show that stuff, but I have done some other sewing.
Another little cute pair of flannel pants for baby B. I am now making the 9-12 month sizes for him. He is so long at almost 6 months! I love making these little pants. And since I am on a flannel kick, I have lots of flannel scraps...
So I made another scrappy flannel blanket. The first one was awesome and it is used daily in the car seat. This one is a bit bigger, per his mother's request. I had lots of scraps and a few bigger pieces.
This is the back of the blanket. It is just 2 layers of flannel, no batting and sort of quilted to prevent shifting of the layers.
Love all these crazy flannel colors and patterns. I know it will help keep him warm this winter. The last thing I have almost finished is the other TV cushion for my other grandson, V.
For V's cushion I used some Castle Peeps I had in my stash. I had just enough of the castle fabric to do both of the flat sides. The orange piping I made from a very small piece of Kona, less than a quarter yard.
The handle is the brown Peeps, which was small to begin with, but in putting it together, I cut off their heads. Oh well....you can see in the picture above, the pins where I still need to stitch it closed.
A side view of the castle towers. This cushion I also used a lining of muslin to strengthen it as I did not have home dec weight fabric. I think this will work just as well. Again, the tutorial can be found on Sew Can She. It's a pretty quick sew, even if you make your own piping.
