More GIRL and Fabric Tuesday #88

Because of Memorial Weekend I decided to announce the winner for our minky blanket giveaway from The Minky Boutique on Friday...so you've got a few more days if you didn't enter yet.  It is seriously such a sweet blanket you must take a minute to comment if you haven't :)

Next, if you didn't see my post on Friday where I had an announcement and shared some sweet little dresses (hint hint) I think you should!!  :)

It's Fabric Tuesday and I have more girly-ness to share...it's getting out of control and I can't stop myself. If I didn't need to use up all this fabric it would be a real problem. I go to sleep and wake up thinking of all the girl dresses/skirts/blankets/quilts that I want to make!!

I told my husband when I finished this last night that it may be the prettiest thing I've ever made.  I am smitten with this blanket!!!


The ruffles??  And birdies and roses and...I'm so loving this!  I got this fabric called Tweet from Skye Reve Fabrics a bit ago on a whim thinking "If I have a girl..." and I am so happy that I got it!  The fabric came just as we found out the baby is a girl :)  It is a great size, about 40" square.


Yep, backed in the snuggliest minky from my LQS.  I took a nap with it today.  Seriously. I made my husband snuggle it for a while too :)  This morning when I excitedly pointed it out to my 3 year old son, folded in a corner so you couldn't really see it, I said "Look at the cute blanket I made for the baby!" He took a quick glance and said, "I know already." Ha!  Boys really don't care about this stuff! That's why I have this blog right??

And then in the last week I busted out some skirts too, I'm trying to advance my clothing skills since I haven't sewn clothing much.  These were sooo simple.

 Coral Floral: Lark by Amy Butler
Cream Floral (above) Red Bouquets (below): Millie's Closet for Riley Blake
Gray Circles: I'm pretty sure it's something like Metro Dots for Robert Kaufman...anyone?
I also got most of these from Skye Reve Farbics

Isn't the trim sweet?  I got it at my LQS, it's just ruffled tulle.  Okay now hold on to your coffee mug, or chair, or dag/cat.  I've got a little surprise.


SNAP!
Oh yes I did.  It's two skirts, they're reversible :) It was so cute to make these and my boys actually did think it was cool that the skirt could flip and change entirely :)  There you have it for now!!

Fabric Tuesday #88
What have you been crafting?  Clothing?  Quilts? Home decor?  Can't wait to see!!

Congrats on the new arrival! I have 2 boys also, so I know you're thrilled! I decided not to try for a girl, but love sewing girly things for my 5 nieces!!

Those skirts are so cute! I'll have to try those next - did you make it up or is there a pattern you can recommend. I made some little skirts (and a dress) this week as well - they are in my post that I linked up.
