Baby Paper Piecings

I have been busy working on my swaps for the month of October. I finished up the baby swaps first. This is what I made for baby boy using the color blue.

Baby Boy Swap

The pattern is from KaDoodle Bug Designs.

I also used a baby pattern from KaDoodle Bug Designs for the baby girl swap.  I did add my own little shirt to the girl, because I wanted to add more pink.

And for the neutral swap I used a pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven to make this adorable little rocking horse.

I am still working on the Thanksgiving swap and hope to post those soon.


Week 6.  Still hanging in there and so are 3 others.  The sketch for this week:

Sketch 6

  These were the other rules to follow:

1.  Stay true to the sketch.

2.  Monochromatic.

3.  Use a border punch.

4.  Use at least 2 hand-made flowers.

5.  Use bling.

At least we started out with a two page layout and the extras seemed easy enough to follow.  So here is what I came up with.Betzy

I wasn’t really sure I liked it, but I followed all the rules and stayed true to the sketch.  After I submitted my layout for the challenge Sarah and I decided to play around with it and this is what we did.  Now this, I liked.  More my style.


Which do you like better?
