I rise early in the morning and go down late in the evening. My desire between waking and sleeping is to make things pretty or make pretty things! I have been in secondary education for twenty years teaching high school art, helping young adults recognize their creative nature or trying to help them develop one. I thought I had given up sewing when my little ones grew too big to applique their clothes and make cutesy clothes for them. I rediscovered that love of creative sewing one summer two or three summers back when I wandered into a quilt shop with my sister (the queen bee of quilting) and saw a little clutch purse pattern that looked too simple not to make. I was hooked! The rest of the summer I was designing purses and have been doing so every since.View all patterns by designer (43) »
Grab those pool noodles when they go on sale at the end of the summer because here is a project you will want to do for the next baby shower. (Find them in the winter as pipe insulation.)
A great baby gift for showers.
It is not a blanket or a quilt but a mat for the baby to sleep or play on. The pool noodles are inserted into casings made to fit the diameter of the noodle to give a soft support to the edge of the mat. They are raised slightly to slow down rolling and are soft enough to be easy on the baby.
Emerson's face and body are just slightly stuffed to give a little contouring of the body.
Even toodlers love Emerson and want to lay their sweet little face on Emerson's face. Emerson & Friends make napping fun.
