Usually I walk right by the cowboy fabric, usually. My family took a two week RV trip to Yellowstone and the surrounding area. During that time, I popped into any quilt shops we happened to stubble upon. I began to see a theme -- Cowboys. In memory of that RV trip and a fun scavenger hunt along the way, I managed to gather enough fabric for this Cowboy Quilt. It seemed that a traditional patchwork was in order. I backed it with a spotted horse minky fabric that I just love. The weight and the softness combined - perfection. This is a household favorite.
Knit hats are such a treasured item around here. The kiddos LOVE them, which makes them even more of a joy to make. This hat was created using 1 skein of Lion Brand Super Bulky yarn in the color Fort Worth Blue with a size 10.5/6.5mm circular needle. CO 58 Stitches, Rib for 4 rows. This fits my 8-year-old and me too!
The pile of my husbands retired t-shirts in my sewing room was beginning to take up a bit too much space. There were 40 t-shirts. FOURTY! So they went to the chopping block. I cut them into various sizes and played a quick Tetris game to line them up on a fleece backing. And tacked them down with pins, pins and more pins. About 200. Right now I love it. I love that it is not symmetrical or perfect, yet comfy. Wish this one luck as it goes under the needle!
Meet Brownie. I created her about 6 months ago for my 4-year-old daughter. Brownie is sooo loved. What more could a sewing Mom ask for? My other daughter decided she would like a bear as well, so along came Vanilla. I will let you take a guess on who is who! And the names -- my girls kinda like baking and anything sweet.
