Grandmas Love Making Things for Baby!

We Carry
by Sara Snuggerud in Sewing Tips

Last week we had our “Baby Themed” Sewtopia Sewing Club which should have been renamed to “Grandma Themed”! It was such a popular topic we had to bring in extra chairs for each of the three Sewtopia sessions!

Since it was so popular, I thought I would share some pictures of some of the projects we showed and from which book or pattern they are from. There are even some FREE pattern links and a FREE embroidery design – so make sure to read this whole article!

If you are interested in any of the patterns, books or embroidery designs shown, call Heirloom Creations at 605-332-4435 or e-mail us at

We are always happy to ship!
