Number 7 girl is due any day. I don't know if Grandma's are supposed to have the nesting instinct like Mom's, but I think that was what I was experiencing when I got up this morning.
I just had to take a break from some home dec sewing I have been doing for 2 clients to do some soft sweet little girls sewing.
A couple of weeks ago, I had gone to my favorite quilt store and picked out these, not knowing yet what I would make. I also got some brighter larger prints too, but there is something about baby girl that just says soft pink and green.
I made a burp cloth which I designed quite a long time ago, so it went quick. Then I made a bib by just drawing it on typing paper. You can't really tell here, but it started out scalloped, and lost a little of the scallop when I sewed the piping on. I'm gonna have to work on that one. The shoes are a pattern. I first saw them here and asked her if she would share where she got the pattern and she did.
I tried making my own pattern an even tried a couple more I bought elsewhere, but I love this one the best. The top is just cut with pinking shears, and I thought I would have to finish off that raw edge, but you know what, it is so soft and sweet that I love it with the pinked edge.
This picture and the next one show a little more detail on the shoes. I am going to be making more of these. After I played around with "changing" them and "improving" them, and got back to just following the pattern, they went together so quickly.
As I was taking these pictures, I realized, that I take a lot of my pictures in this room because it gets the best light of any place in my house. Besides it has hooks I can hang things on and places to lay things out. So one day soon I am going to give you a tour of this room. It really is cute. It is called by my grandkids, the "Play Room" or the "Girl's Room." You'll see why when I show it all to you.
No time now though....babysitting duties tonight.
