Some Days I Just Feel Like Sewing

Some days I just feel like sewing something & today was one of them!

Did I have a bazillion-million other things to do? Of course, but I thought the phrase ‘carpe diem’ was a good theme for the day. And besides … I bought this adorable baby flannel fabric @ Joann’s yesterday. I couldn’t not buy it. It practically jumped into my cart.

Ninja baby elephants and lions? Monkeys and turtles,too? Of course!

Paired up with the ever popular chevron…

And, here is the finished quilt. I just love these quilts so much. Wouldn’t they make a great baby boy gift idea?

I’ve just started restocking my Etsy shop (note: PeachyJeanGoodyBox is my Etsy shop. Why isn’t it called The Designest? Looong story, I’ll post about it one day)

You’ll find my other quilts, some cute fur lined baby boots, and other random art or household goods.

Here is a peek at some that are listed today …

  1. I have to give it to anyone that makes quilts (especially ones as cute as this!), because they seem like they’d take forever to make! But they’re so cute! Any baby would be lucky to receive one. Who knows, maybe I’ll bust out my sewing machine to do one one day. And hat’s off to you for find the time during the day to make it happen! 🙂
