I just had to share this adorable dress that Patrice, a nido friend and regular, sewed for her 6 month old grand daughter.

Made out of Heather Ross Nursery Versery, this little dress and cap are the sweetest. Thanks for bringing it in to share with us Patrice.

Fat quarters are 18″ X 22″ cuts that are perfect for a wide range of projects including coasters, pic cushions, children’s assessories, a variety of tote bags, computer cases, wallets, wristlets and much, MUCH more. And let’s not forget they are brillant if you dabble in any kind of patchwork. nido’s fat quarter bundles are carefully selected fabrics put together by our staff. Playing around with fabric combinations in a shop full of fun, fresh fabrics is about as good as it gets for fabric lovers like ourselves, and we really enjoy making them.

“Spring Bicycle” is one of our currents favorite combinations.

We also are the digging “Ladybug Patch” bundle.
