Some hand sewing action this week. I can't believe it is almost a year since we welcomed to the world baby Elliott. His Mum rang last week to invite us to his party and I thought, well I better quickly whip up his present for him. So I am sewing him a hanger with his name on it for his bedroom door. I did this one for his brother years ago, back in November 2005, the days before I blogged, a funky green dinosaur.
Its a design which I don't know where it came from originally, although I have sewn this one before, for one of Grace's boyfriends from Mothers Group. Above is it all vixofixed into place, ready to blanket stitch. That was on Sunday. After three days of hand sewing whenver I had the chance, I have finished and done simple echo quilting around each shape and even sewed the binding on last night. I did that bit by machine! I'm not that silly!
Here's a close up of the little purple fish, it looks cute I think. Not bad for a rushed in a week job!
