Pajamas for My 3 Year Old Grandson

My grandson loves construction equipment so when I saw this fabric at Joann Fabric & Crafts, I had to buy it! I had no idea what I’d make out of it but I knew I’d make something….lol

The colors are eye catching and the construction equipment wasn’t too babyish. Wyatt liked the fabric pattern so much that he carried it around on his tricycle! He LOVED it!


Pajamas! That’s what I’ll make him! I decided to purchase a lime green t-shirt and embellish the front with the same fabric I’m using for the PJ bottoms.


Time to get busy sewing…..this should be a quick project 😉 and I’m so excited about my darling grandson seeing them! He’ll love wearing them, I’m very sure of that!imageThanks for stopping in…..Have a most wonderful day doing something that you enjoy. ❤️ ~ Barbara

Christmas Elf Costume

A real live Christmas elf getting ready to deliver adopted puppies and adult dogs to their new, loving forever homes in the Lowcountry of SC.

Green felt was used to create the main tunic of this costume and used red felt to make the neck collar. I found this pattern online a couple years ago, I can’t recall where I found it but will post the site’s link as soon as I can find that info. I added a strip of white furry fabric onto the sleeves for an extra touch of Christmas cheer.

wp-1464097245658.jpgI chose not to make the hat in this pattern because I already had a super cute elf hat with the elf ears attached….

My daughter used one of her wide black belts at the waist to complete this adorable and super fun Christmas elf costume.

Rachel, my daughter, was the SPCA elf for Dorchester County on Christmas day in 2015 delivering newly adopted puppies to their loving forever homes. It was a wonderful day…a very Merry Christmas full of happiness and smiles……AND lots of wagging tails! 🙂

Thanks for visiting my blog; hope you found a bit of inspiration for your next project. Your thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated. Blessings and love sent your way…. ~ Barbara

Christmas Log Cabin Quilt Blocks

I was looking through a sewing/quilting magazine (Quilters World)  and came across photos of placemats and mug rugs made with log cabin blocks. Very cute ideas that got me thinking… I’m going to make some log cabin blocks that I’ll sew together to make a Christmas quilt that fit nicely on the back of my sofa! It’ll make a nice cozy lap warmer during the holiday season 🙂img_0039

Not quite sure which pattern layout to choose but I’ll post a photo of the lap quilt as soon as I finish it.

Here are just a few of the layouts using 6 of the log cabin blocks (I’ll be using 12 blocks). Would love some input; which layout do you like best? The funky chevron intrigues me. What do you think?……

I probably won’t sew them together until late next week because I’m working on a king sized t-shirt quilt for a friend of mine.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek….Your comments are greatly appreciated.Have a most wonderful blessed day. ❤ Barbara

Dr Seuss Advent Calendar

I found this fabric panel featuring Dr Seuss’s Grinch at People Places & Quilts in Summerville, SC. I purchased a panel and made this advent calendar last Christmas for my friend’s children….and they LOVED it!

The Grinch is stuffed with cotton and travels daily across the numbered pockets. My friend told me that moving the Grinch was the fun highlight of every morning 😀

I just made 2 more of these Dr Seuss Grinch themed advent calendars to sell at a craft fair l’m in next week.

As you can see in the photos, this fun Christmas item is a super nice size!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit with Dr Seuss’s Grinch….Drop in again, I enjoyed your company 😀 There’s a spot below where you can leave a comment letting me know you were here.

Have a blessed, happy and creative day…… ~ Barbara ❤️

T-Shirt Baby Quilt

A loving mom contacted me and asked if I could make a memory baby quilt. She wanted a special unique gift for the baby she was expecting. Could I use t-shirts, sweatshirts and other cloth items that belonged to her children?….Yes ma’am; I sure can!

Such a fantastic idea for the baby she was expecting! Super special and fabulously unique! A baby’s memory quilt that will be used and enjoyed through all stages of the child’s life.

Cozy Baby Boy Crib Quilt


There’s just something special about making a quilt to give as a shower gift for an expected bundle of joy. There’s no other quilt that’s the same; it’s unique and it’s special.

This cozy little crib quilt was made for a very special little fella…Fire trucks, trains, dump trucks and happy puppies!

Red, white, blue and yellow 🙂 Cozy fun and happiness.

I also gave this baby quilt the special touch of a rag quilt edge around the outside perimeter.


I like to add different textures, fabrics and embellishments to keep the baby’s curiosity peaked as they grow, explore and learn.

Adorable Pillow Case Dress

On a trip to the fabric store I found this interesting sugar skull fabric and just had to purchase it for my growing stash. I originally planned to make a quilt with it but when one of my daughter’s friends saw my post on Facebook (Nonni’s Creation Den) showing this fabric, she asked me if I’d make her precious little girl a pillow case with it. Of course I jumpwp-1464097592750.jpged at the chance with an excited “Yes!”

I used an ellie mae designs pattern (K169) but I added my own personal touches…Instead of using ribbon, I made the shoulder ties out of matching fabric. The little ruffle overlapping the larger polka-dotted hem ruffle is another personal touch.

Sugar skulls deserve a few extra girlie girl frills and ruffles especially for this adorable toddler princess. Momma absolutely LOVED this pillow case dress I made for her little princess.

Very cute and so very very cuddly soft….so…..when I found this no-sew Christmas tree skirt kit on sale at Joann Fabric store I couldn’t pass up the chance to try something different. 🙂 it was easy and I could sit right next to my hubby watching a movie while doing what I love doing….crafting! sewing! creating! doesn’t that sound fabulous?!!
