Upon this "quest" I realized that the mall has absolutely nothing for a 2 year old girl. With my 4 year old son in tow, we frantically searched three stores only to come out with a pair of pajamas my son picked out for her from him (it has trains on it,) and a few beaded necklaces.
I think I have mentioned before that every time I have my kids with me at my local quilt shops, they pick out a fabric for their own little stash. So yesterday, I decided to whip a couple of things up for Aslyn with some of her stash fabric.
First was a little purse; she loves getting into mine. I found this tutorial here. The outer fabric is Urban Zoologie, handle and lining is A Stitch in Color Little Dot Clementine.
Second, a doll quilt. Currently, she takes her little stuffed animals and tries to wrap them in twin to queen size blankets. I received the hexagons from my swap partner in the Post-Summit Swap.
This quilt will more than likely get lots of use, lots of dragging around the house and outside, lots of washing; therefore I quilted it rather densely with straight lines. I had quilted around the outer edge of each hexagon and skipped over those with my straight lines, so the hexagons kind of pop out a bit.
I had some trouble with the fabric feeding through my machine. For some reason my feed dogs weren't catching it. So, it's not the best quality work. But I don't think Aslyn or her "bebes" will mind.
