Knuffle Bunny and Crab Hat Finishes

I finished up a couple of quick things this week. During Black Friday I went to Fat Quarter Shop and picked up some Knuffle Bunny fabric. It came the next Friday and I finished it by Monday afternoon. My smallest one and I are pretty excited about this one. I also got another order for an adult-sized crab hat. LOVE! First, the quilt...

These prints are Knuffle Bunny from Cloud9 Fabrics. I had a really hard time narrowing down which prints to choose. I wanted this to be a quick and easy whole cloth quilt. I enlisted my Mo Willems obsessed two year-old to help me pick and these are the ones we ended up with.

My littlest one was so excited to match up the fabric with this page in her book. She kept dancing around on my fabric while singing an usual song consisting of the word, "match!"

Since all I had to do was baste, quilt, and bind this went super quickly! I got the fabric on Friday and finished Monday.

I really love both of these prints and the binding is so fun! I love a pop of color or interest on the bindings. You can see I did my regular zigzag method for the binding stitch. I love this because it makes them so sturdy, especially on quilts that I know will be loved and used by my small people.

Here's my smallest, the one this quilt was made for, all ready to read. Ruby just loves this book and having a quilt to match is perfect!

At 40" by 60" this is a great child or lap size quilt and I hope it will be cherished for years to come.

Also this week I made this adult crab hat. You can find this, and many other styles newborn to adult, for sale in my Etsy Shop. This is by far my most popular hat and I just love it still! It cracks me up and I'm getting so fast at whipping them out.
 That's it for me this week. Thanks for stopping by! I hope to have several mini quilts and maybe a cable knit hat to share next week. Until then I'm linking up with Finish It Up Friday.

  1. haha! That crab hat is great! Several years ago, when my husband and I were on vacation in Germany, we ran across a preschool group on an outing. All the little kids were wearing lobster hats very similar (though not nice crochet like yours) to that crab.
