Blue teddybears

At last, something for little ones that like slugs and snails and puppy dog tails.

Or at least, for those beautiful bundles of blue, the baby boys out there....

Blue mink and soft teddybear cotton

Snug as a bug....

in a rug.

or snug as a butterfly, if you like

Do you like my new 'Snug As A Bug' baby blanket? Soft bright pink brushed cotton (aka flannelette) and super soft embossed white mink fabrics. Very light and surprisingly warm.

The butterfly features beautiful floral and butterfly print wings, matching pink body and machine blanket stitched in place. Measures approx 93 x 76 cm.

I am very excited about some other colours of this soft minkie fabric and ideas I have for future blankets. And there will be boys varieties, I promise! I know most of my creations are girl oriented, I can't help myself seeing as I have girls of my own!

About time for a boy card...

After all that pink, finally a chance to use some blue!

Claude Cat drawstring bag

I couldn't resist this black cat fabric, a beautiful linen like cotton from Japan; in the Kokka fabric range.

I would also like to draw your attention to the embroidered cat stitching on the casing. A fabulous little trick of my new gorgeous Janome. And the husband thought I'd never use the extra sttiches! Ha!

Ignore the fact that Claude himself ended up crooked. Does that just make him whimsical? I like to think so.

I tell you, it took all of my inner strength not to redo this, as it would have ruined it, plus all my work down the tube, so I have left him being cheekily crooked!
