First Fabric Box

First Fabric box. A bit floppy but perfect for a sleeping dolly

Fabric Pencil Case

Inspired by this book. This was a very easy and fun project to do. Only took me two hours and a half and I did not have to undo anything, which is not at all like me when it comes to sewing.

First quilt finished

A long, long time ago I decided to make a doll's quilt (see here) not really knowing how to even make a quilt. I started doing the nice bit, choosing fabrics and unevenly sewing them together. Then it was left unfinished for many months until I eventually learnt (bother learning) how to finish it properly, mainly how to do the binding. So now I can (I think) make a quilt. Hooray! And dolls can snuggle to a cosy quilt in this house at last.

Made again

Last October we lost in Gatwick this teddy I made for Ana's 1st birthday. I was so upset we lost "pipi" I couldn't sleep that night (I bit sad, I know). Ana only noticed its absence because I kept on talking about how sad it was that teddy was gone, and oh I wonder where he is now kind of thing,  but it's not like she particularly missed it. Anyway, you can guess what comes next, I had to make another one, not for Ana's sake but for me. 

And here it is.

 I very much felt that I had to use the same materials and I couldn't resist to add a  little friend.
