New Nursery Decor for a Special Little Boy…..

sewnbyleanne_nurserydecor_backyardbaby1

A beautiful new nursery decor for a special little boy…

Chrissie chose new beautiful ranges of fabric before Master P was born – this stunning Backyard Baby Range from Michael Miller and the pink Wee Wanderer also from Michael Miller. We didn’t know what gender their new addition was going to be – so creating could not start before Master P arrived.

The order was :  fitted sheet, flat sheet, bunting and 2 cushion covers.

So the week master P arrived I ordered this gorgeous fabric range, and when it arrived – it is even more gorgeous in person <3.  The fabric has a beautiful soft feel to it.

The first cushion cover is square, and just lent itself to some fussy cutting beside the polka dots.  Chrissie had sent me a text during the week, and used Paddy instead of Patrick – so I decided to machine embroider this gorgeous “pet” name to the cushion.  ON the second cushion I found this teal ribbon with polka dots at Spotlight while going through fabric – and thought it would be a perfect match and it was !!.

The fitted sheet and flat sheet were made from the polka dots – giving the nursery decor lots of colour for a sweet little boy.

The bunting has 15 flags and is double sided.  I used an Ash Blue for Patrick’s name and machine applique’d the name to the front flag !  It looks so good in his room all together.

With the spare fabric – I created a cot sized pillowcase for when he is older.

I feel very honoured to have been entrusted with this creation.  Bringing a newborn baby home to their new nursery that you have spent HOURS contemplating and designing  is such a special time for all parents…

Enjoy <3 <3

This is just one example of how Sewn by Leanne creates Nursery Decor to suit your needs.

Have a great day.

I Spy Quilt ………

sewnbyleanne_ispy_economyquilt3

I spy quilt …….. that 100 5″ Economy Blocks make a Gorgeous Quilt top today.

sewnbyleanne_ispy_economyblock

One of the things I love most about Quilting is fussy cutting….. and it is even more enjoyable now that I have such a stash of fabric – I have small pieces of fabric I can use for projects such as these.  I remember looking at I Spy Quilts when I first started to quilt, and thought Oh dear – that would be a lot of FQs to buy to achieve such a project !!  And here we are 4 years later – and Yay !!

sewnbyleanne_ispy_economyblock2

This was a work in progress (one of those UFOs) for a while.  Each block being created as I found the small pieces of fabric to use.  Instead of picking the fabric first.  The fabric was used if it was big enough to cut two 3″ or 4″ squares.  Of course being an I Spy Quilt, I went through my character fussy cut bits and pieces I use for appliqué etc….

sewnbyleanne_ispy_economyblock4

I love it when you see 4 blocks together, and then a few more, and then another……  The Economy Block I used is mentioned in the gorgeous blog of Sew Delicious, in which she refers to the Economy Block tutorial of Red Pepper Quilts.

This “I Spy Quilt” is beautiful.

sewnbyleanne_ispy_economyquilt3

This 50″ Square I Spy Quilt would make a great play mat for that special someone or a cot quilt when they get a little older !!  Now for the Quilting and binding !  This Quilt will be available in my Etsy store very soon.

Thanks for reading.

Preschool Sheet sets

These Preschool sheet sets have been popular over the last two months.

The standard sets include a cot sized pillowcase, fitted sheet and bag to store these in.  With each set I personalise the bag and the pillowcase.  Your child will always know which mattress is theirs with these lovely sheet sets.

Preschoolsheetset_harry_sewnbyleanne

As you can see I appliqué your child’s name to the pillowcase and the bag.  This set includes a cot sized Doona cover (120x100cms) as Harry isn’t quite ready for day care yet.  I have used the les monsiuers Michael Miller Fabric which is beautiful and soft.  The Doona cover is closed with a zip at the base for ease of use and versatility.  I love this fabric as it includes solo many vehicles for the boys – rockets, racing cars and planes,  but unfortunately it is getting quite hard to find in Australia :-(.

I have made many preschool sheet sets for the girls, but this latest one is one of my favourites.  Also made from one of my favourite fabric designers Tanya Whelan.

Again this set includes a fitted sheet, personalised pillowcase and drawstring bag.  In addition my customer asked for a flat sheet to match.  Pink and Hearts (what more could we need on Valentine’s day).

These Preschool sheet sets are versatile and practical, but Beautiful and Unique as well.  If you would like additions to your set just message or email me and let me know !!

A standard Preschool sheet set includes:

  • Cot sized Fitted Sheet

Welcome to our new home here at Sewn by Leanne.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, my prior website went down and was not returning with ease……  so here we are rebuilding….  But as always it is much better to look at things with a positive attitude and build a better site and make those changes I’ve been thinking about and not acting upon.

moving-on  So what does 2015 hold for Sewn by Leanne ??   Here are just a few ideas I have jotted down in my notebook during the week

  • Regular Tutorials
  • Participating in the The Bee Hive
  • Inspirational characters
  • Interviews with my favourite bloggers !!
  • Things I have learnt along the way, building Sewn by Leanne.
  • New Products
  • Sewn by Leanne’s favourite creations ???  Can you guess ???

What would you like to see from Sewn by Leanne ???

In-life-its-not-where-you-go--1...

This is one of my favourite cartoons……..  My blog is all about my endeavours to place smiles on the faces of my readers and the clients who receive my creations.  My travelling is with you… as without those who read my blog……. It is  simply filling in a diary online – so please fell free at anytime to comment and write any feedback you have.

That is terribly reflective, but it has been to journey to get my blog up and running again this last week, through a “couple” of tears, hugs from my children and hubby and chaos during the holidays….  it is BACK.  Yay !!  Now there are lots of smiles and laughter here again and I can go back to sewing and quilting, two of my absolute loves !

Creations that are new to Sewn by Leanne this year, are these gorgeous Girls Handbags:

IMG_7669

 

These gorgeous Little Girls handbags are stunning and each one is One Of A Kind.  Each bag has an unique appliqué on one side and beautiful ruffles on the inside.  It is closed with a recessed zipper.  These bags have been made from the stunning Wee Wanderer range of cotton fabric from Sarah Jane.  Combined with a soft Linen, and fully lined, these are great bags that are large enough to hold a purse, notebook and pencils.

Look out for more here, as I create them…….

Please be patient as I re-create the rest of my website…….. until then all my products can be purchased at www.sewnbyleanne.etsy.com.  You can also follow me on Facebook and Instagram.

Many Blessings,

Leanne
