Stephen and Juliet

Meet the Wormies for little Stephen and Juliet!

When it comes to jungle animals, monkeys and elephants seem to be the most popular individual fabrics to find, not giraffes. Stephen’s theme was giraffe with blues and greens and although the giraffe is slightly subtle, it is still noticeable. Thankfully, I was able to find some fabric spotted in giraffe and a quilt-esque type fabric with a giraffe square on it, but it was harder than I thought! And since the majority of the fabric was flannel, it has made for one cuddly Wormy.

Juliet’s Wormy combined greens and yellows from her nursery with more girly prints and pinks. I love finding sweet girly fabric that is able to tie in so many colors together. I found some patterns that incorporated more garden-type scenes with butterflies and flowers, which also had greens, yellows, and pinks. Juliet’s Wormy is a collection of bright, soft, and warm colors that come together to create a perfectly sweet Wormy.

Here are the finished products, enjoy! πŸ™‚

Hello, Bear Collection Challenge

A blog that I follow, Going Home to Roost, created a challenge to use anything from owner and designer, Bonnie Christine’s, Hello, Bear collection to create a project. Her collection includes fabric, wallpaper, wall stencils, and wall decals. After thinking about it for a bit, I decided that I had to go for it and create a Wormy using her Hello, Bear fabric!

World, meet the Hello, Bear Wormy friends, Wormy and Wiggle Wormy!

It took me quite some time to go through and choose the perfect fabric combinations for these little guys. I mean, how could I pick from ALL of the fun fabrics? (Check them out here) After narrowing down my options, I chose four fabrics to combine: Summit Dawn; Oh, Hello Meadow; Leaflet Dawn; and Follow Me Moonlight. The fabric was so soft and easy to work with, and the combination of the colors and patterns made for such cute Wormies. I love the soft and earthy tones of the Hello, Bear line; I feel like I could have made ten different and equally cute Wormies from all of her different fabric!

Two-by-two

Meet the Wormies for two new little boys and two new little girls!

My wonderful friends over at Growing Weisser are huge Wormy lovers and these are headed their way. Kerry loves to order Wormies in bulk so that she has them to give out whenever someone is having a baby; what a great idea! The first batch went out with Wormies for two boys and two girls. It is always fun to get to make general boy and girl Wormies, combining colors rather than specific patterns, which is what I did here.

If you ever want to order Wormies in bulk to just have them to give out, feel free! Here is the finished product, enjoy πŸ™‚IMG_8535 IMG_8548 IMG_8454 IMG_8473

Monster Deuce

Meet the Wormy for Mr. Deuce!

This was one of those Wormies that I really did not have any specific guidelines on other than to just ‘have fun!’ I always enjoy having a little fun and getting to use fabrics that I love, but do not get to use for Wormies very often. That being said, Monsters was my go-to theme as I continued to find such fun fabric with these little guys all over it. I hope Deuce will not follow suit in being a monster, but will follow suit in being a fun-loving little guy.

Fantastic Mr. Soerum Fox

Meet the wormy for baby Soerum!

Soerum’s nursery theme was based on the book Fantastic Mr. Fox. I had neither read the book nor seen the movie, but knew that the colors were generally earthy. Even though I had the colors figured out, I had to make sure that I was able to find fox fabric that fit the colors in order to make a good Wormy. As always, JoAnn pulled through and I found a couple of different fox fabrics that I was able to work in with earthy colors. Wormies by jana: sponsored by JoAnn Fabrics. Ha!

Baby AJ

Meet the Wormy for my nephew, AJ!

Another new addition to my family came on a warm summer day in mid-July. My oldest brother and his wife had baby Ándouril Josiah (AJ for short), and he was welcomed by big sister, Charis (who got her own Wormy a few years ago. You can check hers out here). Since we had to wait for the arrival of baby AJ to find out if he was a boy or a girl, I made AJ’s Wormy a tad bit later. We went with a basic calming neutral/earthy theme of browns and greens. The Wormy turned out quite soft and cheerful, which is very fitting for Mr. AJ who is quite cheerful himself.

Made for Mikayla

Meet the Wormy for Miss Mikayla!

I had a lot of creativity going with Mikayla’s Wormy, as pink was the only requirement. It took me awhile to figure out what kind of pink I wanted to go with, if I wanted to include other colors, and what I had that could be fun to put together. I ended up combining a hodge podge of old and new fabrics with soft and loud print, but it totally worked together. Mikayla’s Wormy is soft with flannel, bright with coordinated colors, and busy with patterns.
