Hat and PJs for a little boy

Last week end I bought this fabric because I know a little two-year-old boy who is crazy about the movie Cars. Yesterday I cut out the pattern pieces and after supper I started sewing. 

The PJs took less than 30 minutes to make. I zigzagged the outside edges of each unfinished piece before sewing the pieces together. When the weather gets cooler he will enjoy wearing these snuggly flannel PJ bottoms.

The hat took an hour to put together. Turning it took about 10 minutes and resulted in a wrinkled hat. 

This morning I ironed out the wrinkles and top stitched around the brim to hold the lining in place. I hope he likes his Cars bucket hat. It is one of a kind just like my sweet grandson.

Half finish-woven words

This is the bottom half of a quilt I'm calling Woven Words. There will be two more rows and two borders. The vertical sashing is a stripy print with hummingbirds, dragonflies, and butterflies. The cross pieces are butterflies. The next row will be little triangles on aqua. Can't wait to see how it looks finished.

Accidental Landscape & Pink Elephant Quilt

This little landscape is almost finished. I took a class and bought the book. Easy and fun. Need to finish quilting, sew on the back and corner holders.

Made this pink and gray baby quilt for a family who just adopted a baby girl.

I have had the fabric for a long time but everyone I knew had baby boys.

Finally, a baby girl. Hope she enjoys the book that inspired the fabric.
