I am in desperate need of a baby quilt kit or design featuring Thomas the tank engine (or any train really). If anyone has something like that with instructions or knows of a source for it I would really be grateful. Thanks,
Head to your local Walmart. They have Thomas there in Polar Fleece and in regular fabric. If you choose the polar fleece then all you have to do is a blanket stitch (directions can be found on the internet) around the edge with floss or you can crochet an edge with yarn or easiest is to fringe the fabric with a pair of sisscors for a finished edge. Polar fleece does not ravel so you really don't have to do anything.
To make a cute quick quilt, buy about a 1 yard of fabric cut in half.
Right sides facing, sew around sides leaving a 1/4 seam allowance. Cut batting to size and lay on fabric THAT HAS NOT BEEN TURNED grab the corners and turn holding on to batting. Now lay the whole thing flat. Take a pen and put evenly spaced dots on the fabric. At each one of these dots you are going to take a couple of stitches and the tie a knot. This is called a handed knotted quilt. When done turn in the edges of the open end and whip stitch closed. I hope this helps.
Using a picture of Thomas, or a coloring book picture of a train, the simpler the better, create an applique using whatever fabrics or colors you desire. You could enlarge this with a copier and make 1 big train applique or make blocks with smaller trains. If you do a big train it might be fun to stuff the individual parts by slitting the back and stuffing lightly, close up the slit by hand before you add the quilt back!
Keepsake Quilting also had a kit for Thomas the train a few issues ago.1-800-865-9458. The fleece one froim Walmart sounds cuddly and easy.
What you do is go to your web browser and type in Free Coloring Pages of Thomas the Tank, then hit search. When you go through the pages in the Coloring book you print them off and enlarge them so that you can use for applique or you ask the place you enlarge them to put them on graph paper for paper piecing
COLOR BOOKS are great for pictures. Or draw the picture yourself. To make it even easier, once you have a picture of a train, cut it out with a second layer of muslin or a piece of old sheet. with right sides together, sew around leaving an opening. Turn it right side out. So now you don't have to worry about seams that are hard to turn. just sew it on by hand or do a zig-zag stitch around the edge.
If you are still looking for Thomas the train Fabric, I got some at Wal Mart today.
I can't find Thomas Fleece anywhere. They don't have it at out local fabric store or Wal-Mart. have checked everywhere. Does anyone know where I can find it? Thanks.
the COLLECTOR CONNECTION.COM HAS LOTS OF THOMAS TANK FLEECE BEDDING i WAS JUST THERE
There's a company called Ticche and Bea that makes a product called the Baby Clothes Quilt Kit. You could use it to create the quilt-- they give you materials, supplies & directions. I just found some Thomas the Train fabric at JoAnn's. Hope this helps!
The Thomas the Train fabric I'm looking for has squares of Thomas trains. One with #1 Thomas, another with #2 Gordon. Where can I find it?
