Receiving blanket packs

You know those cute, little coordinated blankets you see in the store all bundled up so nicely for that new little baby? 

We now sell them at Busy Bee.  All blankets in the packs have been hemstitched and measure appoximately 30" x 30".  They are single layer and come with other matching blankets in 2, 3 and 4-packs.    Here's a peek at a few we have in stock. 

(Sorry about the plastic glare.  I'd already packaged them before I remembered to take pictures.)

Pretty in Pink 3-pack

Lily Pad 3-pack

Under the Sea 4-pack

Butterfly Baby 4-pack

Hello Baby 4-pack

Jungle Adventure 4-pack

Howdy Partner 4-pack

Hearts and Kisses 3-pack

Puppy Love 3-pack

This is my favorite kind of blanket to use with a new baby because they are the perfect size for swaddling. 

If you see something you love and do not live in the Phoenix area, I'd be happy to mail it to you. 

Don't forget to come see us at Cowboy Christmas.  We will have drawings and giveaways!  See you there!

Mama Stellato Giveaway

Some nights when I can't sleep I think I should clean or work on a project.  Yeah right.  I end up fiddling around on the computer.  I find some great sites and giveaways, so I thought I would share.

I love this hoodie.  And since I'm sewing on knits right now, it's the perfect project from Mama Stellato.  Andrea from The Train To Crazy is hosting a givaway.  Stop by and check it out.  I love her site name.  We have plenty of crazy to go around at our house!

Monkey Pajamas

I tried making my monkey a pair of pajamas.   I haven't worked with knits since I was a 4-H kid and my mom would "chain" me to the machine and make me sew.

 Thank heaven for ball point needles

 and differential feed. 

What a difference it made when serging the edges.  I'm still using the good ol' bernette funlock.  I love this machine!

The easiest part for me was adding the ribbing on the legs because I've done it so many times when making our Busy Bee bibs.  I didn't take time to match the stripes on this pair.  I only cut out the bottoms so I could see if the size worked for her.    

Too big!  I'll try a smaller size.

She just had to pull them up as far as she could!

 I'll put them in the closet for a couple of years.

Self-Binding Blankets

We have a new product at Busy Bee Hemstitching.  These make great gifts for that special little someone.  And the best part--they don't need to be crocheted!
