… meet Betsy's litte brother - Benji

I wasn't planning to make a little boy stitchery. . .
. . . but so many emailed & asked if there would be one. . .
. . . so may I introduce 'Betsy's' little brother. . .

' Benji's Pockets - In Stitches'!

I wanted to make this design a little more 'handsome' so I did my stitchery in redwork, 
& I used two of the wonderful Primitive Gathering Muslin fabrics from Moda. 
(I love these fabrics for so many things!)

While the sample I made includes a little baseball uniform & equipment,
for those that would rather - the pattern also includes the option of using 
a little soccer uniform & equipment instead.

Here's a few of the blocks. . .

The pattern is up on the website & we will also have a limited number of kits available. (Shipping will start on Friday, August 31)

Also. . . although we still have some floss kits for Betsy's Closet - In Stitches available, I have sold out of the kits - but there is good news!

Jennifer at ShabbyFabrics.com has put together (one more time!) some more kits for 'Betsy's Closet - In Stitches! You can find them here! (But please know this will be the last number of kits she will have available & when they are gone - they are gone!)

Thank you all . . . for your incredible response to the stitcheries of my little folks.
You have made this all so much fun!

Benji's Pockets is so adorable! Just so precious :)

Another adorable. I don't have any little boys in my life but I may still need to own this pattern. LOL

I'm finishing up the final stitches on Betsy's Closet tonight and I love it.

Hi Bren, Cute as always! I will have to add this to the shop.

Oh Bren, it's gorgeous!! I really love that you made a redwork version, and also that you included a soccer lad. ;-)
You're so talented!

Yes, these are so sweet too. I do like the baseball uniform, even though I was a soccer mom! Adorable Brenda!

I had seen an applique of it, but I think the stitchery is so much cuter. Prejudice on my part. =)

I love this so much. I bought both patterns when my daughter got married "just in case". And then she said she was having a boy! Well Benji's it would be. Of course I asked the other Gramma to help and we tweaked it a little to make it our own. I will send pics if I can figure out how! We added toys to the sashing and borders and added a few more blocks to make it a bigger floor play quilt. What fun to work with someone on something so important. We have a second baby - also a boy. I might just need to make Betsy's Quilt for myself!
Thank you so much for shoring this art.
