E is for Edward – Ribbon Blanket

Edwards Ribbon Blanket
Edwards Ribbon Blanket

I made this ribbon blanket for Edward, they are made commercially by “Taggies” and are designed to keep a child’s interest by the different textures of the ribbons. If this is the hot infant toy and it is super easy to make you can bet I will have one for Edward. 

One side of this blanket has bright stripes and the other has adorable elephants. I personalized the blanket just for our little guy. I actually made two because the “Taggie” website recommends having a spare because children become so attached that losing one at bedtime might be a challenge, not a bad company recommendation when the 12″ blanket sells for around $20. 

It is sure fun having a new baby in the family and parents who welcome my little crafts. I hope Edward will enjoy his new blankie.

Another Crafty Woman

Baby Gown

Not only do I come from a long line of crafty women but I have been blessed by my brothers bringing equally amazing women into our family. Two of them are crafters and live close enough that we can share some of our fun. Here are samples of my sister Karen’s work. She is celebrating the pending birth of her first granddaughter.

Western Baby Duds

Western Bibs

Denim, flannel and bandana bibs

 

I have just finished making a bunch of baby items for a little girl and now I am focused and things for a baby boy. All of this is western using several different fun prints. As a short cut I have been using my serger with complementing thread, this saves me the time of turning under and ironing the edges before sewing them. Just today I was able to complete 2 blankets, 2 bibs, 2 burp cloths and a changing pad. All of this plus the normal things like dinner and homework help.

One Amazing Crafter

As I stated in my legacy blog, I come from a long line of crafty women with both of my grandmothers being very handy. Here is one of the crafters I admire most, my mother. I began sewing and cooking with my mom when I was still in elementary school and although she had to give up sewing several years ago due to the loss of her eyesight she has continued to knit.  Here she is knitting a baby blanket for what will be her newest great-granddaughter. 

My mother is totally blind and knits using braille and recorded patterns.  I have yet to learn to knit or crochet so this is an art form I am in awe of and I  am truly amazed by the way she is able to count her stitches and can even recognize when she has dropped stitch.

Ariel Bag

    

I just completed this awesome new bag   

Ariel Bag

Ariel Bag, notice the two clips

 

 it has lots of pockets and two clips on the front to attach a cellphone, keys or maybe even a bag of pacifiers.,I am not sure what to do with it this bag. It is a little large for a purse. It might work well for a beach bag for one. I am open to suggestion from anyone.

Baby Ring Sling

I have just completed making a baby sling for Kasey it was on his wish list of baby thing he wanted. The pattern was amazingly easy 2 1/2 yards of fabric( cut in half the long direction) and 2- 3″ rings. 

I lined the sling, but the sling is often made without the lining. All I did was sew the two fabrics right sides together the long way then cut one end down to a point and sew the point closed. I then turn the fabric so the right sides were out and pleated the open end down to about 5 inches, I then folded over the pleated end and threaded the two rings through before I stitched the end down. I now have a completed sling.
