My Baby....

I made my baby….

A sleeping bag!!!!
Now by
Is this a tutorial!! I just wanted to show you my project.
First, I made my own fabric!! I took soft flannel and a cute cotton print; I machine quilted them together in a grid pattern. Now, for me this is big time, as I do not machine quilt. I just so happened to have the perfect color of pink thread! (thanks T).

Next, I lined my baby up and cut my newly made fabric to fit…

I then sewed the top to make a smooth seam, sewed the other three sides.

I now have a tube, turn her inside out

and some embellishments
and my baby is now safe and sound!!

Now, what have I read in the past few weeks, I went onto my Kindle, picked bestsellers and recognized the name Dan Brown. So, I read..
The Lost Symbol
My rating 3 out of 5 stars.
I just finished..
The Five People You Meet in Heaven
My rating 4 out of 5 stars.
Today I loaded a sample of the Oprah book club selection; I have yet to read the sample, so I am not sure what my next book will be. For sure, I am going to check out all the wonderful suggestions you have given to me.
I LOVE this baby!!!


  1. We must be on the same wave legnth,Jane. Yesterday I started to make the same sort of pouch for my fancy new cell phone....great minds think alike!!BTW...I had no idea you didn't machine quilt......everything by hand?!? wow!!

  2. Aren't you cleaver! Beautiful pouch!

  3. Now your baby is pretty in pink! Great job Jane!

  4. Don't you just love your KINDLE? I've been loving mine since Mother's Day. It's wonderful and I can't get enough of it. I'm reading one book right now and have 3 more waiting for me. I better hurry it up. I love your kindle's new darling sleeping bag but I'm sure it doesn't get to sleep in it much, since you're reading all of the time. Right? LoL!

    P.S. You should be getting my block any day now and there's a cute little suprise there for you and I also sent 5 extra blocks for you.

  5. I'm so glad you're enjoying the kindle!

    We listened to Lost Symbol during a long drive trip. it was good, but not his best.

  6. She looks all snuggly in there, doesn't she? Very cute post!

  7. lol - i thought why pink for your baby little t? he's a boy! i forgot you have two babies - little t and little kindle! good job, jane!

  8. beautiful baby pouch!

  9. Love the fabric....and what a nice comfy place for your cell phone to rest.

  10. Cute pouch, Jane. So nice to know that you are enjoying your new kindle.
    I read one of Dan Brown's novels and loved it.

  11. Nice way to keep your baby safe and secure. Not to mention cushioned. Of course you had to put it in pink. I would expect nothing less.

  12. And yes it's PINK! (of course)

  13. I thought you made a sleeping bag for little T. lol As I saw the picture of you turning it, I thought it sure is small. lol
    Love the red and aqua blocks. Can't wait.

  14. What fun! Every baby needs a snuggle bag!

  15. Oh this is very sweet. LOVE your custom made "fabric". And even though I don't have a Kindle.. I know what you mean about your Baby. That would be my Ipod Touch for me. :-)

  16. Well look at you. This is wonderful. You CAN machine quilt you know. I know you can do it.


I always love to hear your thoughts!
