Fall Quilt Market 2012 – Part 1
Well, Quilt Market has just wrapped up and it was really amazing. Last year's Fall Market was a bit overwhelming, but after a year of learning more about the industry, this time around felt much calmer. It was sooo nice to see familiar faces and meet new people. I got to know some of the other crazy talented Michael Miller designers a bit more and to meet some designers I am completely in awe of. I took lots of pics, so I will break this up into two parts. This post is all Michael Miller…

Interchangeable Bowtie Onesie….with Attached Suspenders (2 variations)
Oh my word......I'm completely loving this whole 'boy' change-of-pace. It causes me to think a little more because, well, creating ruffled skirts and flower accessories just pops right into my head. The boy stuff......well, I have to play around with it a little more. I think that's why one of the top requested projects that I get asked to do around this blog, are BOY projects. Because there's a lot less out there. So, I've had twice the reason to create boy things lately. A baby boy in my…

Comfy Newborn Cuffed Pants - Free Printable Pattern
I've got a baby shower to go to this evening. For years, I've used my old standby of burp clothes as my go-to baby shower gift. I decided I'd branch out a little this time and make my favorite newborn church outfit, which includes my favorite Comfy Newborn Cuffed Pants. (You can click here for the template to make your own Tiny Guy Tie Onesie.) I made several pairs of these pants for Anson and LOVED them. I love cuffed knit pants on newborns because they're so comfy. The cuff keeps the pants…
Baby Pants | Purl Soho
Big marble eyes and tiny toes, bobbly heads and Lilliputian arms, babies’ disproportions are just intrinsically adorable. But for me, the real charmer has always been the sweet baby bottom! I love the way puffy diapers make a baby’s backside so over-sized and perfect for patting. Since finding out that I was expecting my second child, I knew I would need to celebrate her finest feature with a comfy, cozy pair of Baby Pants. These trousers, with their rear gusset, make room for even the…
Infant Hooded Towel - Girly Style!
Remember the hooded towel I made last year? It is probably what brought some of you to my blog. That was the very first thing I made when I started my blog and it is also still one of the most popular posts. I made a new hooded towel, this time a girly one, with ruffles. After 2 years of everything boy, it is exciting to have purple and ruffles, even on bath towels! I love these towels. They are so much better then the hooded towels you can buy at the store and quick to make. Plus, if you…
