More Baby Biirds

Another person I know and/or work with is having a baby. Yep, the seemingly obligatory baby gift is done. Not obligatory by any stretch as Kathy is not only a coworker but a friend.

She's been working on a cross stitch Jungle Babies blanket so I decided to follow the Jungle Babies theme with my gift. I dug through my stash and found the perfect fabrics to use. I started with a changing pad made with flannel backed vinyl:

Next was a diaper and wipes case:

Then the bag:



And last but not by any means least, the quilt. 4 paper pieced animals:




Got the top finished and then the whole thing quilted and self-bound with the backing fabric:

And finally the quilt label:
I scanned a portion of the outer pocket fabric from the bag and played with it in Photoshop to get the baby's name and "made by" information on it the way I wanted it. I put a small version of the label on each of the other parts of the gift. I hope she likes it!

Baby quiilts

Got a couple of baby quilts I should make. One for a co-worker and one for a family member. The co-worker is having a girl and the family member had a boy. I've got some fabrics picked out for both but am having a hard time deciding on a pattern. Given the amount of free time I have, probably the simpler the better. :)

Made some curtains (double sided) for my office windows. Put 'em up today. They look kinda cool except for the fact that you can see through the one with the white background - but I guess it's okay. I like 'em. :)
