Getting ready for a new baby now includes making special things for big brother and big sister! Jennie has some special things planned for them after baby sister is born, so I thought I would love to be involved and make a few things too!
Along with the little diaper bag, (the Bella clutch, our free pattern with just a few modifications), I am in the process of making a baby doll quilt, it is made from The Sweetest Thing by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake! Love this line!! Every print is adorable and every color is perfect for little girls. Her blog is so cute and full of lots of beautiful creations of hers!
The doll quilt is a little more than half way complete. I will add about 5 or 6 more rows of 3″ squares then quilt and bind. I think it is going to be perfect for Norah to be a little mommy. I know she will love them.
Silas is next after completing these fun things for Norah. I still haven’t decided what to make him but I would love any ideas you may have. He is 3 and loves everything trains these days. When they were visiting last, his Opa (Grandpa) took him on a short train ride on the VRE (Virginia Railway Express) and that started his love of trains. He is so cute and is now obsessed with trains, it has also spread to Norah who has her own little Emily train too!! Maybe something with trains would be appropriate for him!?
I can’t wait to begin the new baby quilt that I will be making soon. I already have the fabric and I think I have the pattern narrowed down also.
We are enjoying a little bit cooler weather here, such a relief after a long hot July! Nice for walks and enjoying being outside more!
Enjoy your day!!
