Have To Make Projects!!
A couple Baby Quilts (of course)
Some simple two sided blankets..Flannel and Cotton
Bibs and booties
A sleeping sack velcro pouch thing
Maybe some baby clothes, toys, bunting, change mat etc etc.
For all these New Projects... I needed to go Shopping.....
Normally when I buy fabric, I buy a Co ordinating Fabric bundle that i just have to have and then I usually try to stock up on a few basics like Kona Solids, Dots, and Stripes. I rarely, in fact, i dont know if i have ever bought a yard or so of a cute print just because i liked it. So this was a fun shopping spree for me. A little out of my comfort zone. Hunting for a few cute prints that i could have as my feature fabric and then find fabric from my stash to compliment.
I fell in love with each of these...
Left to Right
If I was really organised I would of had a good look through my stash and tried to find feature fabrics that would match... but, where is the fun in that??? I just found what i liked and hoped for the best... and had some luck!!
These Lizzy House fabrics matched really well with some Konas I had... and... the Michael Miller Dumb Dot. I'm thinking of making this bundle into a Baby Chevron Quilt... Kinda Like my Quilt Class Quilt, only i dont think i'll seperate the colours with white this time....?
I really liked these little birds (Meet the Gang).. and the Metro Living Circles I have in Pewter and Grey work well I think.
I'm not normally a zoo animal type person but i think for a baby... you cant go wrong with at least one fabric that has animals to point to.
This one i think im going to use for the Baby Sleeping bag pouch thingy...
Maybe these for a reversable wrap?
Oh, and i had to add in a Little Apples charm pack by Annela Hoey!!
So, thats my plan for now....
But I'm good at changing my mind half way through and doing something totally different. So, we'll see!
AND.... If you come across any Great New Boy Fabric that you love??.... Let me know... Im still on the hunt!!
