more lovelies for baby ava!

here are a few of the other handmade lovelies i made for tashas shower to also go in ava's nursrey. baby ava has the sweetest nursrey so you'll have to check out tasha's blog and see the adorable pictures!!!

the pictures from ava's nursrey are from tasha's blog! :) to see more click on the link above!!

yummy booties!! i made these ones from tanya whelans picnic rose in blue fabric

booties from the ohh, so cute japanese hedgehog fabric!!

i am in love with these vintage lamps!!! i found this at a second hand store and now have a couple for my family! :) and am still looking for more!!! this one though, was so perfect for ava's room.

for the banner i used this simple tutorial. the hardest thing with the banner was deciding on which fabrics to use since i could only use a few!!! i had too many cute ones to choose from. now that can be a problem!! :)


the ava doll!! i used bit of whimsey's doodle girl doll pattern for this adorable doll!

i also have to include one picture of the coin quilt in ava's nursrey! :) doesn't it go perfect with the adorable bumper tasha made!

i had so much fun making all the these lovely little handmades for tasha! she is one of my best friends and she has always been an inspiration to me. i would have never gotten into quilting if it wasn't for her encourgement. thanks tasha!!! :)

  1. Hey Kerri- I just noticed your link to this blog on your main page. I have to tell you that you are soooo amazingly talented!!! I love everything you made for Ava's room, and for the shower (...I only wish I could've been there)! I LOVE the hedgehog booties! And the quilts go without even saying... they are amazing! I think it is really cool that you doubled the shower deco as nursery deco- very smart!!
    I was looking through your other posts too, and I don't think I ever saw the round centerpiece that you made- it as absolutely adorable! Seriously, I would totally buy that!
    You and Tasha make me jealous with all your talents!!! You're very inspirational... thanks for sharing.

  12. kangaroo,

    i don't have a tutorial as of now but the closest tutorial to my booties is on michael millers blog: http://www.makingitfun.blogspot.com/

    on the sidebar under tutorials click on cloth shoes. the only thing different is how i do my backs. but they come out looking pretty much the same. and i use chenille for all the backing fabrics and the bottom pieces for extra softness! :)

  15. Where did you learn to machine quilt? It sure looks great, and makes me want to learn how to stipple quilt! I have tried it, but yours looks wonderful.

  16. I love your baby shoes made with chenille. I tried them with minky for a lining, but it is so slippery! I also really like the chenille as the sole. Very cute!
