Baby Blanket: Better Late Than Never
I feel like I’ve had this particular project in mind for ages. A baby blanket for Mister Baby Pants to match his musical crib toy I had made a few months back. And as the Fates would have it, this simple sandwiching of a single sheet of batting between my ‘Imagine That’ and ‘Paper Airplane Dot’ fabrics (both in stores now) seemed to take nothing short of...
Sticks & Spots, Stripes & Dots
Here’s a little bit of fun news I didn’t get the chance to share last week…. I won Spoonflower’s latest design competition last Thursday!!! The theme? Geometrics.

The colors really pop against the graphite ground, and the...
Yummy Printed Things
