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.

Have a great rest of the week.
