Another Fabric Giveaway I Won Has Arrived!

Yeay! As mentioned before in this post, I won 2 fabric giveaways from Sew Mama Sew giveaway day last year. This one also comes from Canada from the lovely blog Fabulous Home Sewn. The blogger Fenna is a lovely lady, I'm so happy I discovered her blog during the giveaway :)

These are the pretty fabrics I won, I am so happy!

I mean who doesn't love cute owl prints? I love everything owl-y!

I love the jewel tones! They are fat quarters and I think this would make very cute baby girl patchwork quilts!

Thank you so much for the fabrics Jenna!

Second Label & My Etsy Shop!

Yesss! I've taken the plunge and created my 2nd label & opened my Etsy shop :D

I made this decision after much thought. I need a more neutral label as my first label Lovemelots Creations is just too girly for me to sew anything other than girls dresses. I can't even use it to sew boys outfits for baby E lol! So I just decided this time it has to be a label I could use for anything else I want to sew while Lovemelots will remain exclusively for girls clothing :)

Have you noticed the Etsy mini on the right of this blog? Yep, feel free to drop by! I love the freedom to create over there. I am still searching for my niche though but as of now I am just listing what I managed to sew up in between custom dresses order for Lovemelots, which currenly am operating solely on Facebook.

I am still thinking if I should change the name of this blog to Stitch by Zura or not. It's too much work for me at the moment so I'm just gonna let it be for now :)

Meanwhile, I have so many things to sew in between tending to this bubba of mine who is fast approaching his first birthday! I fast I can't believe it!

A Quilt For My New Nephew Afeeq

I made this quilt as an excited aunt, for my new nephew baby Afeeq :)

I am used to using a mix of different fabrics for my quilts, mostly scrappy but this time I used a baby safari themed collection called Imaginarium from Camelot Cottons. The mix of soft turquoise, yellow and grey just exudes sweet elegance. I especially love all the prints! Each print showing a mama animal hugging their babies, so warm and sweet!

This quilt is a labor of love. I made 9 pinwheel blocks, sashed & bodered. But I machine stitched the binding because at that time my sister in law was already in labor!

Lucky I made it in time for this sweet boy to enjoy....

Afeeq Farhan bin Mohd Fathirrahman...the first born of my baby brother...such a cutie!

I have to say photographing a quilt is SO hard! I can't seem to get all of it in photos lol...but I love making this and will continue making more baby quilts...

Baby Afeeq is now almost 3 months old, already smiling & cooing. He is my 4 nephew (3 of whom are my sister's kids) and my parents' 7th grandchild. Here's to many more babies to cuddle and sew for!

Baby are loved!!!
