I made a quilt using Rachel Denbow‘s instructions in her Red Velvet Baby on the Way E-Course! Check it out!
If YOU have a baby on the way (or a friend does) and are a crafty lady, I definitely recommend this E-Course. There are 12 stunning and useful tutorials included – I plan to make a few bibs and changing pads pretty soon and I might even tackle some of the more complicated stuff too!
The Herringbone Quilt tutorial is definitely the stunner though. I have been planning to make a quilt since the day I discovered I was pregnant and it was awesome to have this handy guide to follow.
I used mostly vintage sheets for the fabrics in this quilt, along with all natural cotton batting. The Vera (green ferns) sheets are ones that I had on my own bed as a child, so it’s very special to me to include them in this quilt. It makes me smile every time I look at it! I may make a fitted sheet out of hte extra pink floral fabric to use in the crib as well – and yes of course Rachel has included a tutorial for fitted crib sheets as well! Lucky me!

Getting ready for the wedding in Austin this weekend. It was a fantastic trip! I even wore red lips.
I HAD to feature these bracelets in this Wednesday’s This & That & the Other Thing because I have completely fallen in love with Moorea Seal‘s jewelry, and her new line of studded leather bracelets are no exception! I want one of each so it’s a good thing she’s offering them in multiples! You can even choose the style and color of leather for each one! LOVE.

Rachel Denbow of Smile & Wave will be releasing a new E-Course all about crafting for a new baby! I’m super excited to snatch up this course and try my hand at some crafting while I wait for my little one to arrive. I’ve been saving my favorite fabrics and vintage sheets for just this sort of thing – the chevron quilt below is just adorable and may be the first project I attempt!
The course will launch tomorrow – Oct 19 – through Red Velvet.
