make it and love it

recently i stumbled upon a great sewing blog, Make It and Love It.

ashley offers some easy to follow tutorials for a wanna-be-sewer like me.

i followed this tutorial to whip up these cushy baby blocks. they will be part of a baby shower gift for a party i am attending next week.
(i inserted a plastic easter egg filled with pennies in the larger block to add a bit of jingle).

next, i'm going to attempt to place appliques on onsies! ( ahhhh!!! what am i thinking! i hope it works. it's so much easier to trust the target registry than my own sewing abilities).


  1. Denise,

    Your creativity amazes me. What a cute idea for a shower or kids party!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  2. so, so, SEW adorable!


    Can't wait to see the onsie!

  3. i am picking up my "starter" supplies today so i can attempt the blocks. we will see how it goes :o)
