Baby Photo Albums

This week I took my basket of baby gifts to Maria for the birth of her new first baby girl Esperanza. In the basket was all the things I made consisting of the whole cloth crib quilt, baby slippers and two baby photo albums for the grandmothers. The quilt and baby slippers are shown in older posts of mine.
The baby albums are identical except for a few little touches here and there. I made crazy quilt covers out of various baby fabrics and embellished the seams with stitches using my Janome sewing machine. I had stitched beads, added baby themed charms and silk ribbon embroider.

Baby Slippers

A few weeks ago while surfing the Internet I came across a free pattern for baby shoes. A friend of mine just had her first baby a couple of days ago and thought for fun I would try making a pair. After making the first shoe, they are very addicting!! Being reversible makes them more fun! After making the first 4 pairs I then wanted to do a shoe with silk ribbon embroidery it. Then since I love crazy quilting I decided the baby just has to have some cq slippers!!! This baby's doll might be wearing these in the years to come!
