This blanket is made with comfort and durabilty in mind. you can wash and wash and it just gets softer and more wonderful. Flannel and soft fabrics make up the pieced front as well as the back. It is tied with chenille yarn--again softness. This particular blanket has fabric yo-yos hand appliqued on the front in a random flowing pattern. In this case these yo-yos are made of coordinating fabric from the baby's room and the flannel was picked to compliment the color scheme. baby blanket $43--with yo-yos $53

- My mother was an expert seamstress and often did alterations on costly garments. She once told me that I would learn more about sewing by taking a well made garment apart than I would from any pattern. How true I discovered this statement was! Recently I was looking over a pattern that a friend gave me. She wants me to help her sew aprons for Christmas gifts. After studying the sewing instructions a bit I came to a familiar conclusion; if I purchased a finely crafted apron it would not be put together this way. Who writes these instructions anyway?!

The newest creation from my sewing studio is The Kathryn Diaper Bag. This was a custom bag created as a surprise gift from her sister. We went shopping together and chose fabrics and trim. We discussed the pattern and features and most of the embelishing and then I created the rest. It was so enjoyable shopping together. I guess that is why I love doing custom projects! $80
