This post is about my latest sewing projects for kids.
My biggest kids project this year was the birthday quilt for my niece. She turned 4 in january.
I have to admit I was very lazy and made a really simple quilt for her.
I used the same fabrics which I just bought for her a few years back.
I already made her lots of stuff out of this fabric for a her room like a bunting, a pillow or a little doll quilt.
I finished the quilt in only 3 days (after work). I used some simple wonky crosses and stars.
As always I quilted it free motion. It's still my fave way of quilting. It's fast and I don't need to measure anything or need to keep an eye to match seams.
It's already the second quilt I made for my niece.
In 2010 I made my first quilt and gifted it to her.
This one is bigger than the first one. It's big enough to cover her little bed but has a very comfy and soft batting so she can cuddle under it .
The backing is a vintage duvet cover which I already used on other quilts before.
The binding was made from the left over fabrics from the top.
I still have a little bit of fabric to make more stuff of her. But hopefully with my next project (christmas 2014) I'm able to use all of it.
I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of these fabrics anymore. So I'm glad when I finally used every little piece.
Last week I got a mail from an ety customer.
She already bought two soft dolls from me and asked for two more as gifts for friends.
I love making these soft dolls. They are fun and cute.
