Rag quilts...






Are my newest obsession. I love them! I love how easy they come together, how soft and cozy they are, and how you don't know how they're going to turn out until after you wash them. Here is my first one. I made it for the new baby and I'm very excited about how it turned out. I'm also working on more for Christmas gifts, as well as for the kids' room.

I plan on making some to sell, although I'm not sure what the prices will be. Although they are rather easy to construct, all those snips take a lot of time!

Christmas shirts








Here are this year's designs of my Christmas shirts. All appliques are 100% cotton fabric, and the reindeer, Christmas tree, and the snowman also have hand sewn button accents. All fabrics and shirts are pre-washed in Alll Free & Clear, so they won't shrink! The finished products are machine washable and dryable.

Priced at $22 plus shipping.

Minkee blankets




Here's another of my newest creations. It's a generous sized blanket made with the highest quality cotton fabric and backed with super soft minkee. This one was made with a cottagey rose fabric and rose swirl minkee. The blanket is top-stitched for strength and added design.

Turkey shirts!




After a long hiatus due to what seemed like never ending morning sickness, I'm back, and here is my latest creation. They are super colorful and cute turkey shirts, just in time for Thanksgiving. I appliqued 100% cotton fabric and corderoy onto Carters onesies to make the little guys, and they are finished off with button eyes. They are all custom made to order, so each one may be slightly different, but just in the fabric placement. They are priced at $22 plus shipping.

New prototype




Here's a new design prototype I made for a smaller bib just for drooling babes. A friend of mine suggested it because she has a major drooler on her hands! They are made the same way as my bigger bibs are, with chenille backs and snap closures, but are just smaller.

Here's my little model!

Memory quilts







Here are some recent examples of my memory quilts that I've been making. I take pieces of clothing that your baby has outgrown, cut them into squares, and then create a one of a kind, heirloom quality quilt. They are backed with cotton chenille and are hand quilted with buttons.

It’s so easy to pack your child’s clothing away as he outgrows them. The blue layette he wore home from the hospital, the tiny shirt and tie he wore for his first Thanksgiving, the dinosaur pajamas he wanted to wear every night. But, instead of packing away all of those memories, have them made into a Memory Quilt that you both will cherish forever.

It takes 13-15 pieces of clothing for a 30” quilt, 18-20 pieces for a 36” quilt, and 25-27 pieces for a 42” quilt. So, gather your child’s favorite outfits, and send them to me, and in 3-5 weeks you’ll have a quilt filled with childhood memories. Email me for more information at olive_and_ollie@yahoo.com
