Sewing for the Kids: Snip and Stitch’s Kid’s Section

In the past year I have become a grandma to a beautiful little girl and a handsome (not so little) boy! Being a new grandma has inspired me to expand Snip and Stitch’s children’s section.  Snip and Stitch is now carrying bright, bold and fun fabrics and patterns for the little ones in your life.

Here is what our new and improved children’s section has to offer…

Vanilla House bib patterns –  These modern bib patterns offer style and functionality at the same time. Check out the adorable Monster Babies for the boys and Diva Babies for the girls.   If your little dude needs to arrive in style, the Dude Babies pattern is the perfect fit.  These patterns are not only adorable but they are easy to make!

Owl Wonderful line of fabrics by Olivia Audi – This colourful, fun fabric is the perfect fabric to make baby bibs, wipes and even receiving blankets. There is a pre-printed cloth book panel that can be created into a book that can be read and played with over and over.

Rebecca Ruth Designs Smock Monsters – These adorable Monster Smocks can used for all of the activities your little one might get messy doing.  There are many options on how to make these smocks including different eye, mouth and teeth ideas!  You can also jazz up your bib/smock using Pompom trim or giant Rick rack embellishments

Donut Holes Patterns – These are excellent patterns for beginning quilters.  Donut Holes patterns offer two different size options for the quilts.  One uses charms and the other uses layer cakes which are collections of 10″x10″ squares of fabric. Moda fabrics were the original designer of these and they are similar to charm packs but larger. Layer cakes are available by collection and are typically include 42 pieces of fabric.  Use the bold fabrics from the Moda Line combined with the Donut Holes pattern to create the ultimate children’s quilt!

Oink a Doodle Moo by Jenn Ski (for Moda Fabrics) – This is a great line for beginners as there are pre-cut panels.  This fabric is bright will intrigue children’s imaginations.

Using pre-cuts like Jelly Rolls make quilting easier.  Jelly Rolls are collections of 2 1/2″ x 44″ strips of fabric and usually contain approximately 40 strips. Options for Jelly Rolls include fat rolls, strip boxes, roll ups, tonga treats, Rollie polis, and Bali pops. Snip and Stitch carries a number of patterns that allow a beginner to look like a pro.
