For Baby Jude

My friend, Randi, is expecting her first baby next month and I went to her baby shower this last Saturday.  It was a lot of fun!  Her mom threw the party and she had some incredible food and some fun games.  I, of course, wanted to make her something special for her gift.  I love making baby blankets and so that's what I decided to make.  I found an elephant fabric at JoAnns that I thought would make the perfect applique.  I appliqued the elephant and embroidered the baby's name, Jude, on a super soft fleece and used a coordinating blue with polka dots for the back and wrap around binding.  I'm really pleased with it and think it turned out super cute!

Won't You Help Me Please?

Over the last little while I've developed a fondness for felt.  In particular using felt to make children's toys.  So now I've started making my own toys and I would like to make them into patterns to sell online.  So that's where I need help...I need a shop name.  I've always had a hard time naming things.  So I'm asking for help.  :)  Leave a comment with a name suggestion for my shop.  The shop will be for selling patterns for toys made out of felt.  Most likely not felt food because there are plenty of shops that sell patterns for those.  Leave as many suggestions as you like!  If I decide to use your suggestion then you will get a pattern of your choice from my shop or you can choose to have me make you a surprise gift!

UPDATE: I guess no one wanted to play. :( I figured out a name and the shop grand opening is coming soon! Stay tuned!
