Oh, Baby!

I have just gone crazy for the beautiful voile prints by Anna Maria Horner. The hand is just amazing and I’ve loved everything I’ve made with them.

My friends Sarah and Clare came up with the sweetest baby blanket to use as a shop sample and I *had* to copy it. Lucky for me that I have a bunch of preggo friends right now!

The blanket uses such a small amount of fabric and sews together so quickly. It’s backed with flannel, so there’s no quilting or binding involved, which just adds to the ease factor.

I’ve picked up some extra yardage of the block print just so I’ll be sure to have it for future baby gifts. Or maybe just because I like to stroke it against my cheek. (Don’t judge me — try it yourself and see if you don’t do the same.)

I’ve written up the instructions for recreating the blanket. It should be up on the shop blog any minute now but I’m also happy to email you the PDF. Just drop me a line! (flourishes at g mail dot com)

Park Slope Launch

The Trendy Textiles design team (of which I am a member!) is having an eBay launch featuring the new Park Slope line of fabrics by Erin McMorris. Totally in love with these fabrics and can’t wait to work with them some more!

You can see all the listings here, including the little set to the left here. I’m quite pleased with it and I think the little missy is loving it, too. Of course, it’s a little too warm to wear it with the pants right now but I think it’ll be perfect as two pieces when summer ends.
