winnie the pooh

2 Jul

don’t you just love winnie the pooh?  seriously.  here’s a quote i ran across recently:

“sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your head”  now how can that rumbly tumbly bear be so profound?

anaway, i’ve been sewing up a few of those soft books.  so i thot i’d share.

could this be any cuter?

how about a trip to the zoo?

and who doesn’t love a story about little forest animals?


watch out for mr. mcgregor little bunnies!


a bear in a rain coat?  really?

so there you have it.  i just love these little soft books.  they make great gifts for new babies and even 1st birthday gifts.  and they wash up beautifully.  i use a fusible fleece or fusible batting inside the pages.  you can pick up these panels at many quilts shops and they usually run $6-$9.  i happen to get mine from always your design in dell rapids.  they typically have 8-10 different panels at any given time.

i still have a couple to get made here.  and 2 of them involve some crazy monkeys and bed jumping!

i know, it’s late.  i need to turn off the head before i hurt something….. g-nite all.

    I love those panels! I sometimes cut them apart and sash them simply and make a quilt out of the book. They are the best invention for a baby!

      we’ve done that too tammie. and if you get 2 of the panels, you can make a quilt out of one and a book out of the other and it’s a matched set!

    I love your books – there’s one more I saw at Dells w/Bible animals. Better pick up one of those before they’re gone. I decided I want one, so when you stop for my pattern, get one for me! thanks!
