Hands to work as it were… I have most of my family helping out now, my mom crochets the tiny bonnets, one per day. My youngest looms preemie and newborn caps and my grandson helps with the fabric coordination and packaging…
I’ll spend an entire week of cutting, that week end sewing, next week trimming and flipping the following weekend ironing and top stitching. This is about 2 weeks efforts. This weekend I have kids, no sewing… next week I start up sewing for newborns… it’s a vicious circle!

Whew completed a few things this weekend! Finished 8 large sized (32 week gestation) BOY sets of Teeny Tears diapers http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ with wee blankets, one cap with a coordinating ribbon and a tiny crocheted bonnet my mom made http://job121.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/angel-baby-bonnet-crochet-pattern-for-stillborn-babies . Super adorable! I have each set bagged up and waiting for a hospital to adopt! July 27th 2014

8 large (32 week gestation) GIRL set of Teeny Tears diapers http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ with wee blankets, one cap with coordinating ribbon and a tiny crocheted bonnet my mom made http://job121.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/angel-baby-bonnet-crochet-pattern-for-stillborn-babies/ . Each so dainty and feminine, each set is bagged and waiting for a hospital to adopt. July 27th 2014

assortment WIP 7-27-14

Heaping pile of WIP: tinier blankets that will have matching small (18 week gestation) sized diapers, Burp Cloths and bibs awaiting their matching receiving blankets, Owl/Cat tag rattles that will go with the burp/bib/blanket sets waiting for the stuffing, rattles and stitching…and last but not least not a WIP…a finished preemie blanket made of cotton and Minky blanket with Minky…too fuzzy! July 28th 2014

hankie bonnets 7-27-14

3 wee newborn hankie bonnets… I think the 2 tiny ones on the right may be preemie or angel sized since they are SO small.  Now that I’ve found Restore powder I have even more bonnets in process since I managed to get all the antique hankies clean! Alright not all, one is just not attractive at all, no idea why it went from old dingy to grey dingy… bleck! That one will be put back into the eventual hankie quilt box. July 28th 2014

wee hankie bonnets

hanky bonnets 7-20-14
Antique Hanky bonnets. Thankfully there’s an antique store close by that always has hankies! The 2 upper will be going in baby boy gifts. The pink applique will be going in a baby girl gift…the really fun crocheted one will be going to God’s Tiny Angels for a wee little girl… bummer I don’t have any babies available to put this one on it is SO cute! July 20th 2014

Just a Little Hankie

I am just a little hankie,

As square as can be; 
But with a stitch or two,

They’ve made a bonnet out of me. 
I’ll be worn home from the hospital, and on special days, 
And then I’ll be carefully pressed and neatly packed away. 
Then on the wedding, I have been told, 
Every well dressed Bride must have something old. 
So what would be more fitting than to find Little Old Me, 
A few stitches snipped and a wedding handkerchief I will be! 
And if per chance, it is a boy, someday he still will wed. 
So to his spouse he can present the handkerchief once worn upon his head!

So SEW SEW

Found a couple of printed panels at JoAnn Fabrics when I ran there for ribbon…and yes the fabric isn’t really stored by the ribbon…Jaz located them for me…nonetheless…each panel has 2 bibs and 2 burp cloths on them so I bought a boy (monkey) and a girl (paisley Elephants) version…total cuteness! These I think I’ll put away for the next baby born but I also took a few measurements and out of a yard of flannel I can get a newborn receiving blanket and a matching bib and burp cloth to make cute little sets to donate… in this pile there are the bib and burp cloths as well as the next batch of large buntings…just need ironing and top stitching! January 27th 2014

Teeny tiny little bonnet crocheted by my mom.  I got the pattern at Angel Outfittershttp://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/2013/10/easy-crochet-angel-bonn… . I fear mom is quite addicted to making these now! I plan on putting some with the large buntings and any extras can go with the large Teeny Tears diapers…they are so tiny and adorable! This is an itty bitty doll whose head is about the size of a crab apple. January 26th 2014

Large buntings, 16 of which will be making the trek to the National Share office in St. Charles MO.  See the teeny crocheted bonnets?!? Cuteness! http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/2013/05/angel-outfitters-buntin…

Angels sets…whew! I finished all I had cut out and started.  The teeny diapers are via Teeny Tears:http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ .The no sew caps are via: http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/2012/10/no-sew-hats.html  and the 12 inch lovies are thrown in so the wee angels can be snuggled.  I worked on these over three days between other projects and celebrations.  Haven’t decided where these will go yet…perhaps a hospital through Teeny Tears and any left over will go to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia. December 26th, 27th & 28th 2013

not quite holiday sewing

Angel Buntings for angels too tiny and fragile for clothing.  I made 4 smalls (on the right) and 6 larges (on the left) the pattern for these can be found at Angel Outfitters http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/.  I’m patiently waiting for my white stockinette to arrive so I can make the ultra tiny caps to go with these.  Once assembled these will be sent to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, OB Department/PETAL Program. December 15th 2013

Boy Burp Cloths cuz’ Burps happen… I’ve made 16 sets of boy burp cloths, half will go to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia after the 1st of the new year.  The other half will go to the young mommies of Wright County MN. December 15th 2013

Flannel and cotton waiting some serious ironing and slicing up…Receiving blankets, teeny diapers, angel wraps, perhaps newborn snap gowns and buntings will be just flying out of this pile bound for God’s Tine Angels, Teeny Tears, Angel Outfitters and perhaps a few will go to the teen mommies here in Minnesota…just need the time and energy!

good weekend to cut flannel

 

About 40 + burp cloths ready to sew…figure half will go to God’s Tiny Angels and I hope I can send the other half to Wright County for the young mommies.

I noticed I cut too many girlie ones so cut out another pile of only boy shades… November 23-24 2013

Super cute preemie day gown opened up to show the cute beastie fabric.  Got this pattern from:http://www.miraclebabies.org.au/get-involved/knitting-and-sewing/

3 preemie gowns totally done so far.  I might look into purchasing a snap setter…

http://www.miraclebabies.org.au/miraclebabies/assets/File/Premature…

For some reason the large version prints right off the page so this one is ‘small’ I also cut out 4 ‘medium’ we shall see how big they turn out. I could get 2 smalls with coordinating fabrics out of 2 fat quarters with a nice sized chunk of left overs to put into the eventual flannel sweetie quilt. I made mine out of flannel since I’m sewing in the mighty north! November 24th 2013

busy weekend sewing for angels

Had a busy weekend sewing for angels!

2 larger angel wrap sets ready for packaging: each set will have an angel wrap, matching set of teeny diapers and a teeny no sew cap with coordinating ribbon.  Everything is made with 2 coordinating fabrics so the nurses can choose which fabric works the best for each angel.  I love the green flannel with all the bugs on it! Definitely a boy’s wrap.  It’s lined with blue pin stripe.  The lovely rose flannel is lined with pink stars. These will be joining many other baby goodies in January 2014 for the first box of the New Year traveling to WV to God’s Tiny Angels. November 17th 2013

2 smaller angel wrap sets ready for packaging: each set will have an angel wrap, matching set of teeny diapers and a teeny no sew cap with coordinating ribbon.  Everything is made with 2 coordinating fabrics so the nurses can choose which fabric works the best for each angel.  These will be joining many other baby goodies in January 2014 for the first box of the New Year traveling to WV to God’s Tiny Angels. November 17th 2013

The remaining 4 angel wrap sets, 3 larger and 1 smaller.  I have a few more at the machine to complete. Everything is made with 2 coordinating fabrics so the nurses can choose which fabric works the best for each angel.  These will be joining many other baby goodies in January 2014 for the first box of the New Year traveling to WV to God’s Tiny Angels. November 17th 2013

A fan of teeny tears diapers trimmed and flipped waiting to be ironed and top stitched so they can join matching angel lovies and teeny caps! These will be joining many other baby goodies in January 2014 for the first box of the New Year traveling to WV to God’s Tiny Angels. November 17th 2013

Angel Wraps

I’m working on Lay Me Down Wraps, these are the 1st try. 
these are the small ones for up to 18 week gestation angels, the rotery cutter is 8 inches long
I have a larger sized version on the machine for up to 25 weeks gestation angels

working on keeping busy!

4 day weekend worth of creativity!

No Sew Angel caps, these ones are for angels up to 18 weeks gestation.  I try to use a multitude of ribbon colors so I can match a cap with an angel set super quick.  This massive amount took a few days of aimlessly watching TV and tying ribbons at the same time. November 3rd 2013

5 sweet Boy angel sets completed and ready to package for God’s Tiny Angels.  I figure these will be shipped out in January 2014 since the November box is already full and taped shut.

November 2nd 2013

8 Cute girlie angel Sets completed and ready to package for God’s Tiny Angels.  I figure these will be shipped out in January 2014 since the November box is already full and taped shut.

November 2nd 2013

I hit Target and Wal-Mart after Halloween to stock up on adorable baby goodies to send to God’s Tiny Angels for Halloween 2014! Plan on getting more spoon/Fork sets and perhaps teething rings to complete each little spooky package.  Of course I managed to locate more New Born than Preemie outfits, but I bought out all I could find…here’s all my mad money with Shamus looking on.  Not to worry though, it will all get washed before being shipped out next year! November 1st 2013 Note: I don’t sew P.J.s really not that good at sewing clothing…

While watching a few scary movies into the night I chopped up 2 rolls of Stockinette to make no sew caps to go with the teeny diaper sets.  These piles have already been flipped and just need to be tied with cute ribbon.  No idea how many are here…lots! October 26th 2013

Fresh from the drier preemie P.J.s for the next box going out to God’s Tiny Angels. CUTENESS! October 27th 2013

I have conquered the horrible-too-expensive-for-its-own-good-fuzzy-stretchy fabric! Boowahahaha! Let the satin edging compel you…OK a little out of control there…but this fabric is in deed the ickiest I’ve worked with and it now resides on the do not buy ever and I mean it list.  I did manage to get 2 slightly larger than preemie slightly smaller than newborn lovies…these will be sent to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia with the next batch of baby goodies October 13th 2013

forty-seven burp cloths

in celebration of my soon to be granddaughter (yeah I’m going to be getting a granddaughter in November) and her very healthy heart (whew what a relief, no heart defect in this sweet baby) Tabitha’s naming her Olivia Grace (after my mom…mom still doesn’t know the babies name, Tab wants to surprise her) So Oliver will have a little sister…he’s still not too sure about all of this…he loves babies though so I think he’ll be just fine…OK onto what I made…
Last night I cut out 47 burp cloths out of fabulous fun flannel
yup forty-seven of them…lets say I was on a roll! 4 for Tab to pick out for her house, 4 for me to have at my house since Olivia will be coming home at night with Oliver when Tab’s at work…a few to try to sell, 2 for the trick-or treat bags for my wedding for the newborn and soon to be born girls…the rest will be sent to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia http://danettesangels.tripod.com for sweetie babies in need!

Tie Dying Quilt Backs

Totally dyed this thanksgiving morning…after making the dressing and readying the bird I set to dying 4 big white sheets to use for quilt backings.  Scarlet and Teal for boy quilts, and hot pink and purple for girl quilts.  Of course when purchasing the sheets I must not have been paying attention since one of the sheets turned out to be a fitted sheet…UGH!

Shamus was nice enough to nap out of the way while I tied up the sheets using ribbon. 11-25-10

Teal

and hot pink I dyed on the stove top in the stock pot,

scarlet

and purple in the sinks…a little too much detergent added to the purple.  11-25-10

I love the brightness of the color right out of the dye bath! 11-25-10

All done and ready to be chopped up for baby lovies! 11-25-10

whim fabric

fabrics bought on a whim over the past year make for bright yummy preemie quilts!  This is one of 2 preemie sized quilts.  Both will look the same, perhaps different quilting on the 2nd one. I purchased the hot pink velvety fabric on a whim during one quilt shop purchasing adventure and the Easter looking fat quarter flannels on another.  machine pieced and quilted…this in number one of my self imposed FINISH at least one quilt per  2-3 days to use up all the flannel I cut this past weekend.  this quilt is 30 inches by 24 inches…slightly larger than regulation preemies lovies but will make a great drag along when the wee baby becomes a toddling toddler! this will go to: http://danettesangels.tripod.com

new, gently used, handmade

Made 4 fleece lovies to send to God’s Tiny Angels this weekend too.  Figured I should blow the dust off of the Serger occasionally!

October 24th 2010

 

I’ve been buying baby stuff, new and gently used all late summer and fall and basically putting it all in the ‘baby’ laundry basket since I don’t have a box to load it all in yet…didn’t realize just how much I had in there till this weekend when I made the fleece lovies.  Was going to do a small load of baby stuff to pre-wash before shipping and lo and behold I have a LARGE load instead…

Um I didn’t pre-wash the photo album or the door hanger, LOL

Look at all the fun greens!  Girlie greens and boy green! even a satin and velvety lovie!

I know the little summer dress is a SUMMER dress but a long sleeved onsie under it and it would be fine for fall/winter!

speaking of onsies…here’s a pile mom found at Wal-Mart!

LOVE all the color combinations now!  not just pink and blue for wee babies anymore!

Hmmm…I think I’ll have to work on locating more boy stuff!

Kiddie Middles

Been getting up at 4:45am the past few mornings to get Jim going on time (this is the last day of that massive lack of sleep) and to keep my self from falling asleep in the living room I’ve been digging through my stash in search of fun kiddy charms to sew into quick quilt middles…

I’ve made 2 boy middles

and 1 girl middle (yup that’s one lone left over boy charm in there…shhhh…I’m sure no one will notice).  All the charms are 6 inches square…I have wonderful left over border strips from other quilts to make these a nice size…and of course the ever present prairie points! These will most likely be going to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia when completed http://danettesangels.tripod.com

a bit of hand quilting

Fun ‘Caterwauling’ kitty panel purchased from Heavenly Quilt Shop in Waconia http://www.heavenlypatchworkquiltshop.com/index.html hand quilting around the kitties so the safety pins are there to hold it all together for the moment.  Fun 3” prairie points look nifty around the edge. Backed with a yummy light lemon on yellow sheeting.

June 25th 2010

 

Wicked cool jungle panel from a box of garage sale fabric (thanks Auntie Vicki)…I’m hand quilting around all the beasties so those safety pins aren’t a permanent fixture.  Just the right size for a preemie! Backed with light teal sheeting. June 25th 2010

sewing for the wee ones

bonnet preemie angel girl 8-2-14Tiny yellow preemie or angel bonnet, super light and lemony, the tie at the back make the bonnet adjustable to fit a wee noggin. Yellow ties and a satin rose on the other side of the bonnet. August 2nd 2014

bonnets boy newborn 8-2-14

Boy handkerchief bonnets. Kind of difficult to find gender neutral hankies at the antique stores… either neutral ones are HUGE or so used up there no way I can make a bonnet out of them. Well that and I get the sneaking suspicion that bonnets are becoming quite passé and the idea of a bonnet on a boy even for a christening or naming ceremony is just not manly enough… I made 3 none the less! August 2nd 2014

bonnets girl 3-6 month 8-2-14

Bonnets for older babies 3-6 months. Quite feminine these will be making the trek to God’s Tiny Angels for the addicted babies who are a bit older when they go home. August 2nd 2014

Bonnets girl newborn 8-2-14

6 lovely newborn sized hankie bonnets super girlie. I have used up all my hankies! I am hankie free… what ever shall I do?!? These will be going to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia with the next shipment. August 2nd 2014

cheater quilts 8-3-14

2 cheater quilts… found these at Walmart! Every once and a while I can locate cuteness there! These will be either going to God’s Tiny Angels or Project Linus… we’ll have to see how much space there is in the next box. August 3rd 2014
