A quilty replica
It's birthday season around these parts, so time to get cracking on some handmade gifts.
First up is a little dolly quilt / sleeping bag and matching pillow for Lily. I made one the same for her older sister many moons ago.
Every time I make something that even remotely resembles a quilt, I always joke about how you have to cut the fabric up into teeny little pieces just so you can sew it all back together again....... but seriously, I do love a simple patchwork quilt top!
Luckily Bec popped in for a visit just in time to do the heavy lifting (ie. retrieving the massively heavy snap press from the garage)
There are three snaps on each side to convert it into a sleeping bag.
I think dolly looks quite comfortable.
But, the proof is in the playing... and one of my little weekend visitors just couldn't resist!
