A Giraffe for Edward

Recently I was partaking in a fun International swap and the person I sent to has a little boy who loves giraffes and was in need of a new blanket.  So here's what I made for him...

 I used a high loft batting for the fill, and yarn tied the quilt together after appliqueing the top of the quilt and putting the layers together.
I used a blue corduroy fabric for the top of the quilt and an animal print cotton for the back.
The giraffe is made from flannel, and the rest of the appliqued pieces are cotton.
There is no pattern for this.  It is a one and only Gina's Custom Creations original.
However, I did use a pattern to make the giraffe silhouette.
Giraffe silhouette pattern is from the quilt pattern:
"Central Park" by Kate Spain / Moda

You can see the post my swap partner made about it on her blog...

Mini Treat Bags

One of my favorite websites to visit frequently is  They always have great ideas and fun patterns.  And they also have contests once in awhile. 
They currently have the BERNINA Fall Bag Contest going on until November 30th, 2011.  The pattern is a free download from their site, and I've been having so much fun with it!  It's a great little bag to make with leftover fabrics from other projects, and they make perfect treat sacks for kids' parties, or even gift bags for small items!
Here are a few pictures of the mini bags I made just this week...

 I made the Heroes and Mickey bags slightly larger to accomodate
for the images on the fronts of the bags.
