Babies Have Small Feet

One of my colleagues at work had a baby girl this week. I'm rather fond of the mommy and the baby is adorable.

When I asked her what she'd like me to make for the baby she asked for something knitted. The blanket is in the dryer right now - I'll post a photo later this week. I finished it today. I also sewed up these little cuties

Babies have wee, tiny feet! These are size 0-3 months and they are pretty darn cute.

I'm thinking of making a bunch up to see if I can sell them on Etsy or at a local store that takes handmade goods on consignment. I'm stuck on how much to charge. Any suggestions? They are 100% cotton and reversible.

Design Wall Monday

Hi ho, hi ho, it's back to school I go - well, tomorrow at least.

Here's my Dear Jane progress - Row C

Row C
 Here's the block I finished tonight - C5. This has 17 pieces and 3 layers! It was a lot of applique.

First I made 2 identical pinwheel blocks to make the very inner circle and the "bumps" in the next round. This is the freezer paper I used to make the inner circle, to applique onto the background.

Getting ready to applique...

To get the outside section, I made a "window" out of white, then appliqued it on - this is how I got the 3 layers. I also trimmed away excess in each layer as soon as I finished appliqueing.
