4 In Sewing

Pretty in Pink Completed!

Don’t you love that feeling when you finish a big project?  Especially when you love the way everything looks when it is finished?

That’s the way I feel about this pretty in pink set. 

You might remember seeing this quilt in progress.  Here it is, all quilted and ready for its new home. 

The quilting is fairly simple, but I really wanted to showcase the applique and I think the simple outlining of the hexagons and then on the applique itself does that well.

And here is the matching doll quilt:

I worked on both quilts simultaneously,  just repeating everything in miniature after working on the big quilt.   Although it would have been possible to make the little quilt exactly the same, it also would have made for a very expensive little quilt, which its new doll-owner might not appreciate! 🙂  I think this one is close enough to be cute!

I also made matching curtains and a crib skirt, which (sorry!) aren’t really conducive to pictures until they are installed in their new homes. 

And then there were just a few scraps of fabric left…..and I couldn’t resist making just one more thing as a little gift to go with everything else….

She is made from the Molly Monkey pattern at Mmmcrafts, and has been on my “to make” list for years and years (but I have never had a reason to make one before.)  I know, I know, she’s not a monkey.  I really loved the idea of using the grey with the pink fabrics, but didn’t think grey was very “monkey-ish” so I decided to turn the monkey into a kitty (inspired by some of the photos on the Molly Monkey Flickr group).  I later discovered there is actually a pattern for the kitty on the Mmmcrafts Etsy shop, too. 

I’m sad to see all of this pink leave my sewing room… but….

on to the next project! 🙂

    Congratulations, Andrea, on finishing a complicated and time-consuming sewing project! I love your baby quilt – it’s absolutely beautiful! Your doll quilt is one of the cutest things I’ve seen in a long time! So adorable! Your kitty and her clothes are super cute, too!

    Just curious…if I did have a baby girl one day…How much money did you charge for the baby quilt? The doll quilt? The curtains? If I could afford it, I would love for you to design and decorate my baby’s room too someday…

      Thanks, Jennie, for your many compliments.
      Every custom sewing job is different, and the cost depends on so many factors, including the fabric you choose and the style you want. If you do end up with a baby girl (or boy!) I will try to come up with something that you will love and that fits your budget.
