My “Babies In the Pumpkin Patch” Penny Rug Baby Shower Picture Decoration E-Pattern



Sometimes you just totally enjoy what you're designing. Such was the case with my "Babies In The Pumpkin Patch" penny rug baby picture.

I had been wanting to create wool felt penny rug type pictures for my "It's Raining Baby Showers" baby shower decorations line and thought that little baby heads coming out of pumpkins or wearing pumpkin tops as hats would be cute. They'd all be kind of hiding in the pumpkin patch waiting to be found. So, "Babies In The Pumpkin Patch" was born.

"Babies In The Pumpkin Patch" is a pattern to create an 8 1/2" by 11" wool felt penny rug picture enclosed in an 11" by 14" picture frame. For the finished picture I used an orange foam sheet as the background instead of a mat. The wool felt picture is made from two dark brown pieces of wool felt (8 1/2" by 11") which are blanket stitched around all the edges. The orange wool felt pumpkins and leaves are outline embroidered. The baby heads have embroidered and blushed cheek faces, yarn for hair, and ribbon bows for decorations.

The pattern can be made as just a penny rug wool felt blanket stitched picture or enclosed within a picture frame.

My 2 in 1 “It's A Boy! and It's A Girl!" Baby Shower Centerpiece Dolls and Decorations NEW Combo E-Pattern


If you love making nursery decorations or baby shower centerpiece dolls then you're going to love our It's A Boy! and It's A Girl!" 2 in 1 combo e-pattern.

I just love baby showers and wedding showers and when I was designing some of my new dolls and patterns I decided that I wanted to design some centerpieces and favors for wedding showers and baby showers. "It's A Girl!" and "It's A Boy!" doll centerpieces are two of those designs.

What could be cheerier on the table of a baby shower then two baby doll centerpieces surrounded by baby shower presents? Not much that I can think of. Not much that "It's A Boy! or "It's A Girl!" can think of either. My reasons are to make the baby shower a success.  My "It's A Boy! and "It's A Girl!" has reasons of their own.

For 'It's A Boy!" it has more to do with how adorable he is. You see, "It's A Boy!" just loves to be the center of attention and being the centerpiece on the table of a baby shower affords him all the attention he could ever want. Everyone always remarks at how adorable he is.

"It's A Girl!" figures if she behaves herself and looks adorable then she will have done her part to make the baby shower a success.

"It's A Girl!" isn't quite such exactly what to expect, but is ready for anything. She is so excited about the baby shower she's attending and hopes she and "It's A Boy!" do their part to make the baby shower successful.

Neither are quite such what kind of a reception they will get.  However, based on their cheery and inviting faces you can't help but think they will be a success.  Happy! Happy! Happy! Baby showers are joyful and happy times and "It's A Girl!" and "It's A Boy!" are their to make it happen.

My “Baby Nicky” Baby Boy Baby Shower Centerpiece Doll and Decoration New E-Pattern


"Baby Nicky" was named after my grandson, Nicky, who I affectionately call "Noodles." Like his brother he too is adorable, cuddly, lovable, and has the most enviable head of brown curly hair that you'd ever want to see. I would give my eye teeth, so to speak, for his curly hair. He, on the other hand, would probably prefer my straight hair. Well, boys will be boys, and girls will be girls. We always want just the opposite, don't we?

My grandson "Nicky" was born premature at 31 weeks weighting 3 pounds 1 ounce and spent the first 9 weeks of his life in an intensive care unit. The nurses there were exceptional and treated Nicky as if he were one of their own. In fact, I began to wonder, at times, if they were dragging out his release just because they loved him so.

Fifteen minutes after Nicky was born his Dad took us in to the intensive care unit to see him. I couldn't get over how humanly perfect he was at just 3 pounds 1 ounce. He just looked like a very, very tiny little man. I don't know what I was expecting to see but, he just took my breathe away. Even then he had a full head of brown hair. It wasn't curly just yet but would be within a matter of time.

His Mom, who was my biggest fan besides my husband and my Mother, used to give me all Nicky's baby clothes and shoes for my dolls. I know she was hoping that they would all come back to her in one way or another in the form of a doll for her house. A lot did.

In any event, I just loved all Nicky's little baby clothes. There's just something special about tiny little Reeboks and little denims. I can remember shopping with her one day at a "Baby Gap" store. We went in and just laughed and laughed at how tiny everything was. I just loved all the clothes and so did she. We went shopping several times after that for clothes for Nicky and always came away laughing. Sometimes we bought some. Sometimes we just went to look and laugh.

So, I knew I wanted to create a doll that would remind me of Nicky and his full head of curly brown hair and his most adorable baby clothes. That's how "Baby Nicky" was born. Isn't he adorable? Don't you just want to grab all those curls? I do. In fact, I used to hate it when his father would cut all his curls off. I tried to teach "Nicky" to tell his Dad "Don't cut my Hair!" It didn't work. Maybe someday Nicky will realize how beautiful his head of curly brown hair is and leave it alone. Yeah, sure, Nana! Dream on!

Baby Nicky is a 20" baby boy doll pattern. Nicky is a free-standing boy doll in his pajamas and ready for bedtime. He has an undershirt, flannel jacket with long rolled sleeves and pipe trim, and flannel pajama bottoms. He has round black button eyes, a fabric covered wood head, wood body and wood feet covered with slipper socks. He has long curly brown hair and has a night cap knotted at the end on his head. He is carrying a teddy bear in his left hand and a cherished flannel blankie in his right hand.

Every time I look at the "baby Nicky" doll I can't help but remember how small and tiny "Nicky" was at 3 pounds 1 ounce and think "how precious life is!"
