some quilty little baby gifts
Claire, was getting ready to go skiing along with Maisie and for anyone interested, next year promises to be exciting with news that she is to commence "robot" training early in the year ahead of her challenge to "walk" the London Marathon! The race is on now to see who walks "first", mum or daughter!
Essentially I cut the panels, used steam-a-seam to bond the applique "label" with holly/leaves to the plain red "back" of each and embroidered the child's name to personalise. It took me a few mins and a trial "go" with a mini sample to get into my head HOW to make up a quilted sandwich "top" and a fully lined "inner" but in the end it was nice and easy-peasy!
I'm glad I made the effort, they were well received and I hope the children will enjoy them each year for many years to come. We filled the stockings with chocolates and mini selection boxes and the fleece stuff.
