Hello, Donna here to share a Hand Stamped Quilted Barbie Blanket and Pillow!
My granddaughter had asked me to make her Barbie a blanket and a pillow a few weeks back. How could I refuse when she looks at me with her big brown eyes and asks in her sweetest voice
Will you make my Barbie a Pillow and a blanket?” So I asked her if she would like it in any special colors, she states “no”, anything is fine as long as you make it. She than adds….don’t cheat and buy one! Really? I am laughing by now and agreed that I would make it and would not cheat and buy one!
So I thought I would put Ann Butler’s Faux Quilting Stamps to good use and make her a Hand Stamped and Quilted Barbie Blanket and Pillow.
Let’s get started!
Gather all materials. (Wash and dry your fabric with no fabric softener before stamping)
Cut material to size (I cut mine to 13″ x 17″) Mark lines with a fabric Mark B Gone pen.
Start stamping your pattern and repeat until finished.
Using Heat N Bond® fusible fleece for the batting, follow manufacturers instructions to adhere top of quilt to fleece. This will also heat set the inks.
Pin the back of quilt to the front of quilt, backside of materials together.
Using a sewing machine, stitch following the squares on the quilt top. If you would like to get fancier you can. I kept it simple.
Here is a close up.
Bind the quilt using double fold bias tape.
I stamped out my pillow as I was doing the quilt stamping. No particular size. Follow all the same directions as above 1 through 6. Once quilted, cut back to fit front of pillow, place right sides together and pin. Sew almost all the way around leaving an opening for stuffing.
Stuff and stitch closed.
Next, you give it to your 8-year-old granddaughter who is so appreciative, it makes you feel like you have just handed her the whole world!
Before I get to the materials needed, I have to share pictures she has taken with my phone of her Hand Stamped Quilted Barbie Blanket and Pillow. Now remember she is 8.
1 – is “yoga”. 2 – is she is mad. 3 – just chillin’. 4 – is a pillow fight. 5-she is wishing that Farris (my g-daughter had a matching blanket……I think that was a hint) 6 – is one I took, but hers are so much better! I enjoyed her pictures so much, I hope you do too! She took about 40 more on my phone! LOL!
