Fairy Bread Fun..

by Kate on November 25, 2010

I’m sure you have heard about Pip’s new book ‘Sew La Tea Do‘ but in case you haven’t you can read a great review here.

It’s a must buy for any crafty friends or for friends you want to convert to the ‘craft way’. Pip has done a great job, it is beautifully styled and is jam packed with lots of fun projects.

Fairy Bread Blanket..

When I saw the ‘Fairy Bread’ project, I knew I would be making it…so sweet and quite quick to put together.

Materials: Linen and Flannel from here.


My younger cousin and her husband are expecting their first baby next May and this will be their first handmade item from me.

I wasn’t crafting when I had tiny babies and can’t help but think I missed out on a whole lot of exciting baby projects. The newborn ‘to-make’ list has been written…Ames, consider yourself warned.

Fairy Bread...

It looks beautiful Kate but I really, really want to see more of that dress.

Utterly divine! I love everything about this piece…the crafty mind that thought it up…the beautiful frenchies & far out the photos. xxxx

Beautiful blankie. I need to make one for my big girl who is off to kinder next year, and I reckon she would love this to bits!
I know what you mean about missing out on baby projects – I have the same feeling about my fist born.
I am sure the new baby in your family will love all your hand made pressies.

That is just lovely (and I agree, would love a closer look at that dress!

13 Mel November 25, 2010 at 9:47 am

Oh good lord! So much better than I had imagined! Stunning Kate. I need to get that book. I keep thinking someone will buy it for me for Chrissy but what if they don't? Ack!


14 Blueberry Park November 25, 2010 at 9:57 am

that is just so cute, Kate. I don't have any babies to make it for, but one may come along somewhere, sometime, hey? And I'd need to be prepared…no?


15 Nova November 25, 2010 at 9:57 am

so sweet x
I love this so much Kate!


16 Michelle W @ the Crafty Little Fox November 25, 2010 at 10:12 am

I love that fairy bread quilt. Great name and fabulous concept. I have a friend who is having a baby in January and that would be a wonderful idea!!


17 Michelle November 25, 2010 at 10:16 am

Just beautiful! I love the dress your model is wearing too.


18 LeelaBijou November 25, 2010 at 10:59 am

Very beautiful!


19 Christina November 25, 2010 at 11:32 am

I agree, the blanket and the dress are both beyond adorable. And flannel for the backing is a wonderful idea.

(How I wish I had a store like that in my neck of the woods so I could buy linen locally.)



20 Paula (Eggshell Blue) November 25, 2010 at 12:10 pm

I can't quite get past the exquisite dress either :)


21 Amanda November 25, 2010 at 1:17 pm

Absolutely beautiful…Great job!


22 Seaweed and Raine November 25, 2010 at 2:49 pm

Love the Fairy Bread blankie. I was wondering what you were doing with all those little french knots! :)
I am also totally in love with the little dress that your "model" was wearing!!! Did you make it? It is stunning! (I could totally love wearing something like that).


23 spectacularfairywren November 25, 2010 at 2:50 pm

gorgeous love IT and am fancying some fairy bread now…


24 Kylie November 25, 2010 at 3:21 pm

It is lovely – looking forward to seeing what else you create.


25 The Clip Cafe November 25, 2010 at 4:47 pm

Miss Pi is soo popular!! I'm off to read the review :-)


26 Sandrine November 25, 2010 at 7:47 pm

Everything is just stunning on that picture, great work!x


27 Andi November 25, 2010 at 8:32 pm

I'm with Kate …. the throw is lovely but I must see more of that dress!!!!


28 Steph November 25, 2010 at 8:52 pm

Oh I've looked at this project…and now I'm going to make it for sure! Brilliant job…what a lucky little one :)


29 Tania November 26, 2010 at 10:12 am

I know exactly what you mean with the feeling you missed out on newborn craft for your smalls. What's more, the three year old has developed a fierce opinion. Which means that five people are living in this house with Very Different Ideas – none of which seem to align with any of the crafting. GRRRR. Might just make myself some fairy bread.


30 Naturally Carol November 26, 2010 at 8:16 pm

Such a simple idea, but oh so cute!


31 karlyn Jackson November 26, 2010 at 9:11 pm

That's funny, the first thing that came to mind when I saw your snippet of this was…sprinkles or fairy bread. I have not read Pip's book but it's on my Xmas list. Your cousin will love it for sure.


32 Taylor Made November 26, 2010 at 11:40 pm

Just so lovely…I can't wait to have my own copy of the book. Thanks for sharing.


33 Paula November 27, 2010 at 2:14 am

Another voice clammoring for the dress!


34 Christie November 27, 2010 at 9:30 am

Great gift, love the Linen with all those colours- looks beautiful.

I told my sister she needs to hurry up & have babies so I can make things for them!


35 Louise November 27, 2010 at 1:00 pm

How super pretty the colours look on the linen. Beautiful!!


36 Kristi November 29, 2010 at 7:29 pm

this is the project that pulled me into the book…amazing. that dress is breathtaking too.


37 izzy inspired November 30, 2010 at 7:24 am
