Tie Onesie & Name Banner

This week for my cousin's challenge I had a fun time. My husband had Monday off so it really helped me get my project done and quickly.

We recently visited my husband's family. My mother in law is an amazing quilter and she made a beautiful quilt for Andrew when he was born. While we were visiting I asked if I could have the left over fabric from the quilt. I used some to make another tie shirt for the cub (he out grew the first one).

I was also able to do another project I've been wanting to do. I found the idea at Happy Together for rag quilted letters. I decided to take the idea and instead of doing the whole alphabet I just did Andrew's name to make a banner for his room.

To hang the letters, I took some of the extra binding my mother in law had made and sewed it into the cord. Then to hang it on the wall I drilled a hole through one side of a wooden clothes pin and put a nail through it to nail it to the wall. I need to get better at taking step by step tutorial like pictures, but here is the end product. 

Since the rest of my projects are on my family blog, I'll re-post them here over time. Thanks for coming by my blog, feel free to tell me what you think!


  1. Ooooooooooh!! Love the letter bunting!! So awesome! I wanna make one now...

  2. Hi! I'm visiting you from Sweet Charli. My son was nicknamed Cub, too, though his name is Anthony. When he was little, someone called for an Anthony over the intercom. My Cub yelled, "I'm not Anthony, I'm Cub!"
    I love your bunting. I've been thinking about doing one...yours is a great idea!

  3. Those little tie onsies are the funnest! And I love what you've done above the crib!! Thanks so much for stopping by Sweet Charli this week! Come again!
