Catching Up With Makes

 I have been SO busy sewing and trying to finish my "to do" list. 
 (and no, Margie, I have not forgotten about the stockings).
I have LOADS of Christmas presents to finish binding, some baby quilts to ship out, and baby shower gifts that I needed to make.

First up is to share what I made for Avery for his first birthday.  
I put together a car mat, and made a Bendy Bag to put the little cars in and
 then a Midi bag to put it all in.  
This way his mom can carry everything together.
  Isn't that mat the bomb?

You can see both bags here.  Loved making them and will likely make more .

I used Hot Wheels fabric on the back of the mat too.

I was working on a quilt back that needed some attention  
The front was made using the fabric line called Dorothy's Journey.  
So I used the panel for the back and then I broke out my embroidery machine to make this crown and the label for the quilt. 
 I'm still a beginner with my machine so was pretty proud of myself to make this!

I had the BEST helpers.

Next up a lovey using the cutest skunk flannel and some minky.

Of course, my signature chenille blanket!

Made another 6 burp cloths

2 receiving blankets

2 crib sheets

Here it is all together, but I added some resuable wipes in a container, 
and some teethers that I made, and a sloth Warmie.  
Plus 2 books.

Another chenille blanket and a Tiger Warmie. 
 How cute is this combo??

I may need to find more of this fabric. 
Making the tiger stripes for the chenille was so cute!

I have a few more things to share but they need to be gifted first.
I leave for a retreat in WI on Tuesday.
Will likely not post again until I get home since I can't show gifts.

PHEW!  Lots of new stuff!!

Tiger Warmie is priceless, I wouldn't mind one cos it is so cute. The gifts are all lovely and you are really very talented. I do not have so much patience to make such colourful and useful gifts
