1  Toddler cowboy quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by saragold on: September 06, 2010 07:43:47 PM
I made this for a friends sons second birthday. It is about 36x50 inches. Good for a crib or tea party (I have a daughter). The background is made up of several well worn pairs of jeans and a demin shirt. It is so soft, but has a really nice weight to it. I want to make a denim quilt for myself one day. I wanted to put something in the pocket like a magnetic lasso game with a little stuffed horse, but I ran out of time.

There are horse shoes in the yellow denim thread throughout the background

I love the letters, the took a while to do. I was so excited when I found the fabric

2  blue turtle baby quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by saragold on: July 01, 2010 11:29:29 AM
I made this for my husband's friend who has a baby in the NICU. Its pretty small, I used a blanket that was similar in size for the base of my son's isolette when he was in the NICU. It is also a perfect fit for the bottom of the bassinet, the infant carrier, or may be a good doll blanket one day.
I used blue scraps from my collection, white wool felt for the turtle, and white bias tape for the name.
I used this tutorial to do the hexagon background, it was much easier than I thought it would be http://www.ladyharvatine.com/2010/03/hexagonia.html

5  e-bots in Stenciling: Completed Projects by saragold on: June 07, 2010 09:39:04 AM
I used this robot coin pdf to stencil some e robots on my kids clothes

I was only going to make a shirt for my son, but then made the dress for my daughter and thought it was a waste of some good cutting not to use the reverse.

7  easter egg shakers for kids in Easter by saragold on: April 08, 2010 11:37:17 AM
In preparation for a last min easter egg hung . . I took some cheap plastic eggs, threw in some dried beans, paper mached them with watered down elmers white glue and white crepe streamers, (everything I already had in my house) then my daughter and her friend painted and glittered them. I made a little package for them so none of of the really young kids  stuck them in their mouths.

8  Elliot's Baby Quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by saragold on: April 08, 2010 05:32:00 AM
I finally finished my sons quilt. We did not find out the sex before we had him. So I made the black/white/rainbow front first and then after he was born made the elephant backing with his name. He was born early and in the NICU for a few weeks so I took the leftovers and made him a quick little quilt to put in his isolette at the hospital.

9  Baby name book in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by saragold on: January 22, 2010 04:37:53 PM
I made this book for Preston's first Birthday. I was inspired by this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281256.0 and other incredible craftster artists.
I tried and tried to think of a perfect title, but I never did, so I went with a simple cover. i love the vintage look of this fabric

I printed the label on my inkjet printer by ironing the fabric to a piece of freezer paper and running it through the printer. I heat set it and soaked it in water to make sure it did not bleed.
