Making Little Presents
I have made four little softies over the past few months as gifts and I have been meaning to make a few more, especially as I got some very cute domestic art books for my birthday. And I just adore buying fabric, especially all the new prints for children they have brought out recently (see this lovely fabric website for inspiration: Kelani Fabric )
The little dog (above) was made for my beautiful friend Rachel's newborn baby. She wasn't finding out if the baby was a boy or girl before the birth, so I went with orange and blue, safe, but (in my opinion) cute colours. I hope little baby E loves this handmade friend when she gets a bit older. Check out her blog for some super gorgeous photos of her new little bunny.
I am really excited about making a few little friends for my nephew Jax. His mum and dad love African wildlife, so I can't wait to make a few creatures for him. And after that I get to make this cutie pie: *Polly* (see below). She is cute. Oh the list is long...I hope I get them all done.
