Baby Hat

This little baby hat is the followup to yesterdays baby gown. They make wonderful gifts and are so easy  and quick to make.
Everything that I will be showing you this week is in a new pattern called "Baby Couture" based on my lecture at Ruby's Inn.


The first thing you need to do is cut out 2 hat templates. The rectangle is double the length of the hat. The width is about 7". This rectangle is approximately 14" x 7". Sew WRST

                                       

Turn hat right side out. Turn rectangle with wrong sides together.


Divide both the hat and the rectangle into four sections and place a pin. Match pins and pin WRST .


Stretch and sew as you go. Knit is so wonderful to work with because it is so forgiving. I like to use my serger to sew knits but if you don't have one use a straight stitch followed by a zig zag stitch for the edges.



Turn the trim of the hat just up past the seam. Stitch a few stitches on each side seam of the hat.


The flower embellishment is very simple and adds that finishing touch. You could also make all these baby items for a boy, only use boy fabrics and there is no need to embellish.


Cut 5 large circles for the bottom and 4 small circles for the top of the flower.


One circle is placed on the bottom. The next four circles are folded and placed on top. Stitch a circle around the middle catching all four petals.


Fold the next four petals the same. You fold each circle in fourths then place next to each other. Layer the petals. The second layer will be in the middle of the first layers seam.


Sew around all the petals starting on the outside edge of the middle. Keep swirling your stitches in a circle towards the center. This is about a 1/2" stitched circle in the middle of the flower.



Stitch the flower to the side of the hat and you are finished.


These cute hats are cozy and warm. In the pattern there is a small and large hat size. All for infants.




I hope you enjoyed making this cute baby hat to go with the adorable baby gown yesterday.
Simple to make. The fabric used in this hat is The Sweetest Thing knits by Riley Blake Designs.

Happy Sewing!

This is the million dollar quilt. Each block represents the story behind a letter from her son who served a 2 year mission. Don't you think that is such a great idea. I love it.






I love all the hand embroidery on this quilt. It will be a classic.








This was a block exchange quilt. She did a great job of her colors and arranging of blocks. I think this quilt turned out great.







Farm Girl Vintage "Woolly Sheep"

Woolly Sheep is the last block on the  Farm Girl Vintage Friday Blog Hop Sew-Along.

It has been sew much fun sewing along  with Lori Holt, Fat Quarter Shop and all of you every Friday. 


I have a pile of super cute Farm Girl Blocks that I can't wait to start piecing together to make a fabulous quilt. 


I wanted my sheep to be white so I used low volume fabrics...I'm going to add some embroidery around the edge of the sheep to help the outline pop.

My Woolly Sheep and I  took a little field trip to Birdseye, Utah.  My sister-in-law and her husband  live on a ranch... It was the perfect spot for some  Farm Girl Vintage photos.

 Don't you love this old farm truck!

The setting was a beautiful, peaceful, tranquil day.

We were able to take these photos with the perfect backdrop for Woolly Sheep.



Farm Girl Vintage features 45 different quilt blocks  in 6″ and 12″ sizes.  There are bonus projects and quilts galore.  The instructions are visual and easy to read and understand.   There are so …

In The Meadow Blog Tour

I’m so excited to be playing with Shari Butler’s 
new fabric line called
In The Meadow for Sweet Bee Designs!!!

These fabrics are so fresh and happy.  The colors are bright and inspire sewing fun for days on end...
I decided to make this fun quilt using 4 blocks  measuring 12 1/2" unfinished.

I cut 2 1/2" strips and then cut those  into 2 1/2" squares... the block center is 16 squares sewn  together to create a 16-patch.

The outside edge that creates the star points are made up of  16 half square triangles and 4 squares for the corners... all measure 2 1/2" square unfinished. 
          The border uses the left over 2 1/2"squares.


I love putting black and white with bright colors.  It pops the colors and makes everything grounded and cohesive.
The sashing is where I added the 1 1/2" black squares.  Where the corners meet it creates a black and white nine-patch.
