Organic cotton Napkin- hurray!
    I was so surprised when I pull this fabric off the shelf of a locally owned fabric store and saw that it was organic.  It was mixed right in with all the other fabric.  I was so happy for 2 reasons:  1. It is very hard to find fun, colorful organic fabric and 2.  It is softer and the colors are so rich that I just fell in love with the fabric.  Napkins, the fabric spoke to me, make napkins!

Blanket, Burp Cloths (2) and Bib set
    This bright, colorful fabric is so fun.   The navy fabric has ABC and wild animals.  The first time I made a baby blanket like this I gave it as a gift to our neighbors who had a new baby.  Every time they took the baby for a walk, he was wrapped in the blanket!     This wonderful set is a great price at $36 for all 4 pieces in my etsy shop at the link below:

     I really love my new Viking Opal sewing machine.  Here are just 3 amazing things it does:  1.  It tells you when the bobbin is empty.  2. You can wind a bobbin while the machine is still threaded. 3. It is the first machine I have ever owned that the needle threader actually works.
These 3 things alone save me so much time and frustration.   Thank you Viking for making a machine that we sewers have been longing for  for years.

Fox burp cloths in delicious flannel
       If you are looking for an inexpensive baby gift here is one that will be used and appreciated daily.  The flannel fabric in these long burp cloths is extra soft.  One of my customers who bought my burp cloths said that whenever her family sent her a photo of the baby, the burp cloths she gave them was in the photo.   They make great hankies for toddlers too.   For more info or to buy these burp cloths at this link:
