Bears & Princesses !!! And Pink... lots of Pink !!!

Happy Saturday my lovely blog friends <3

I'm so sorry for this long absence, but I've been one little busy bee, working on a custom order for two baby fabric books.  I finished them early today, {phhheeewwww!!! just in time}, I delivered them to the happiest customer ever, and I sincerely hope that the little ones will love them!!! What did you guys do this week, I didn't have enough time to check on what you were making !!!I sincerely apologize for this!!! 


The first book is for little Katy's Christening ceremony, which is themed after cute bears, and pink!! I changed things this time. I made them slightly smaller,there dimensions are 12''x6'' , they still have 10 pages, but I've sewn them all around and didn't cut the edges for fraying. So this is the little bear book for Katy :)


 Bear pattern is from Ammee's babies
 Birds fly in the sky !!!
 Fox pattern is from the book Scandinavian Stitches, and the tree pattern is from little dear
 Whale love <3
 Butterflies and flowers
Scottie dog pattern is from to all sorts  




On to the second book, for little Clio who's Christening theme is Princesses, annnd guess again... Pink and fuchsia !! I think I've gone color blind from all this color burst...hehehehe!!! Anyway, this is the Little Princess Book !!!


 Wouldn't be a princess without her Crown, right?
 A bird in a happy forest <3<3<3
 Butterflies & flowers!!
 Fishes make ..mmm... bubbles??!! Her own small aquarium <3<3<3
 Horses love Carrots :)
 I was too tired to make something different for the last two pages, it was already 3 in the morning, and I hadn't even started to close this cutie up!!! So again, doggie and cat!!!



For gift wrapping, I had already bought two craft brown bags, which I tear and sewn them again, and added a machine appliqued embellishment.  I put in each bag my brand new biz card!!! And I hope for some good comments on my work!! 






For three straight days, I didn't do anything else than work eat and sew..but I'm so happy with the result!!! Needless to say, that the sewing room, is a HUGE mess!!! I can't find anything, all my stash is like a bomb has exploded...so before I begin my next order {a baby set, but I'll tell you all about it in the next days, this is one huge post!!! sorryy!!!}, I do have to straight things up!!! 


I'm off to enjoy the rest of my day, cause tomorrow is Sewing/Cleaning Sunday!!! What will you be making this weekend?

  2. THOSE are adorable! I am in love with the little pink bear! The only book I've ever made before is the kind where you buy the panel and cut out the pieces and stitch it together. This looks like the same principal and much cuter. My sister's friend asked me to make her something for her almost here baby and this would be really cute. And I am really not in the mood to make a blanket, lol.

  3. Your books look wonderful! They are SO cute!! I love the owl and the unicorn! The little ones are going to love them (and eat them) :)The bags are really great too, I never would have thought of something like that!
    I had intended on getting some things done this week but managed to get nothing done. I'm going to try really hard to at least start something :)

  5. Those are abosultely charming! I'm inspired to attempt something other than a baby hat for showers/new baby gifts now. Now, I just need to gather up some bright fabric as my grey/green/black color scheme is a little to dull.
