Friday Finishes: Baby edition!

Is there anything better than making things for a new baby? If there is I don't know what.

It is actually bound now, this is just the best picture I have.

I don't know how many of you were around to remember the Sea Life Mobile I made a few years ago, but the baby boy I made that for is getting a new little brother in April. They are using the same nursery and colors so I stuck to the ocean theme. I made a wallhanging for baby Chris with the great Constellations fabrics from Lizzy House. I improv pieced the waves using the easy curves technique and the 3D flags on the boat are actually maritime signal flags that spell out the baby's name.

I think the anchor is my favorite design, but the little bowties with suspenders are pretty darn cute

Unluckily for the baby's mama, although she's getting another boy he'll be born 6 months earlier than his brother, meaning that none of the clothes from the first boy will be the right size/right season. You know what that means, we need baby clothes!

I added appliques to a bunch of onesies and even some little pants. I first used the "lite" iron on adhesive and then stitched down the edges.

I used a lot of nautical designs as well as some general boy stuff. It was a blast to get into my stash and scraps and find those favorite fabrics.

The baby shower is Sunday and I can hardly wait :)
