My colleague in work had a bonny baby girl last week!

 

As we both work in a Quilting shop, it seemed only fitting to make her a quilted baby gift!

I have loved Ayumi’s fabric basket pattern since she released it in 2008, and have made many in a variety of sizes as gifts for recipients of all ages!

 

The original size makes for an adorably cute baby gift, especially when it gets stuffed full of treats for mummy and baby!

I recently blogged about my Ditsy Daisy Quilt, which used an uber cute collection by Lewis & Irene called Flos Little Flowers.

 

I had some leftover scraps from this quilt which I used to make the pretty girly mini basket and matching bibs.  Some Essex Yarn Dyed Linen for the base and a little crochet trim finished off the basket perfectly!

For the bibs, I kept the patchwork simple, with a little panel of squares and ribbon trim.

The bibs are backed with towelling, making them soft and absorbent for dribbly little mouths!  Using my own template I can get 5 bibs from one hand towel!  This time I stitched on little velcro circles for the fasteners.

I like how the bibs make sweet little roll-ups to fit neatly into the basket!

This is a sweet collection of prints I have very much enjoyed sewing with.  I hope you like them too!

It so hard to get good models these days!  They can be so fickle and demanding!!

But not this one!

So obliging, especially when it came to cuddles and playtime! I think I’ll be hiring her again for sure!
If you would like to make one of these easy peasy bibs, you can get the free tutorial here.
And talking of small and cute, I had a little play with my collection of vintage wooden spools and some Liberty scraps.

So nice to finally have these out on display instead of hidden away in a drawer!
Hope you’ve had a lovely weekend!
