Baby Gifts by Guest Designer Kristie Cucchiari

Hi crafters!  I'm Kristie, and I am going to share with you how to make a fabric match game and matching animal onesies.  I have some cute fat quarters and some let’s get to it!



Cut out twenty (20) 4 inch x 4 inch squares  in each of the following: patterned fabric, solid fabric, and batting.</ span>  Layer fabric with right sides together, then batting on top.

Sew around outside edge of fabric leaving an area open so you can turn the fabric. 

Trim around all edges except the side that you are turning.

Turn fabric and iron edge.

Finish with a top stitch.

Iron Heat-n-Bond to fabric.

Carefully cut out shapes and peel backing off.

Iron fabric shapes to squares.

and now you have a super cute match game!

Make some cut outs of some animals and iron them onto a onesies and now you have a sweet little baby gift!

Guest Designer Spotlight Kristie Cucchiari

Kristie Cucchiari is a talented crafter! We love that she is fabulous at paper crafting, altered art, and she even can sew! This is why Kristie is this month's Guest Designer! You can find more inspiration on her blog, Snippets Craft Boutique!

How long have you been crafting? 
I have been crafting—well—nearly all of my life.  My mother, grandmother, and aunts encouraged me to join them crafting while growing up.  I always found a way to participate, whether it be sewing, painting, or scrapping.  I love to make mini albums, cards, alter/recycle,  and sew.  Most recently, I have been designing digital products for use in digital scrapbooking and hybrid projects. 

What inspires you to be creative?
Without a doubt—smiles are my inspiration.   I love to make gifts for family and friends, and I try a create things that would be special for them.  For additional inspiration, I also look through Paper Craft, and Simply Handmade magazines or head out to the internet (to various galleries or Pinterest) to get new ideas.  Knowing that what I make can put a smile on someone’s face, or when a homemade gift of mine can communicate the depth of my love exactly when it is needed is all of the inspiration I need.  

What Craft Warehouse products do you love to use?
I love to alter things—anything!  Thankfully the Craft Warehouse has a great selection of all kinds of alterable products—especially wood.  As well, the Craft Warehouse always has wonderful projects on display (and a great selection of fabrics!) which inspire me to get creative.  I also love the scrapbooking paper lines, like Echo Park, K and Company and Basic Grey.  

How can you encourage others reading this column?  
Something that every crafting-inclined person needs know is that there really is enough time!  I’m a busy mom, with three very active boys, and all kinds of other things that vie for my time.  In spite of how busy I am, I find that as long as I allow it, my creativity will always find a time, and an outlet.
Make sure to check back tomorrow, where Kristie will share simple baby sewing projects in preparation for National Quilt Month!
