Aurifil monofilament (such versatile thread!) and topstitched with Aurifil 28 wt brown thread.
Then I made this laundry bag using mesh fabric and scraps from a quilt I made for his older brother, Nicholas. You know how it is: the dryer eats their socks and I get pictures of cute little feet wearing mismatched socks. I LOVE those pictures but figure Daniela must go crazy trying to match them after the wash is done... So, here is some help for mama.
I got ideas for these projects from the book "Baby Bliss" by Kim Diehl and Pat Wys. These two highly creative artists came up with wonderful projects for babies, no doubt inspired by their own gorgeous grandchildren. The projects are very practical and easy to make including blankets, pacifier leashes, burp clothes, very cool bibs, overalls, etc.
The instructions are detailed and have plenty of diagrams so you will know exactly what to do. Here are some photos for you to drool over (All photographs by Brent Kane for Martingale; used by permission):
These pacifier leashes are adorable - I can see them becoming heirlooms!!! The next photo showcases the Onesis (I have a long way to go before mine turn out so perfect!).
I am glad I got this book for review because I was running out of ideas for gifts to make for my grand babies. Baby Bliss has more than 15 projects so I will be covered for a while!
