Joining in here again – oh so inspiring to see what people make in their creative lives
This week it is another birthday party present for a very sweet little lady.
I like the colour combo and the way her name turned out – I free motion stitched it on the machine. Flip assured me after the party she loved it and didn’t want to let it go.
I do like green and pink together in these sort of projects.
What is your favourite colour combo?
Another six-year-old birthday and another personalised cushion.
This little guy is a LEGO lover and so I thought I’d make him a little cushion with the iconic LEGO man on it.
I free-hand copied it and then stitched it on in felt.
Pretty pleased with it and I think the birthday boy was too.
Other creative spaces here
Flip and Bounce had a combined 3 and 5-year-old birthday party yesterday for 2 very cute little ladies.
So using the stack and slash method of quilting I made 4 doll’s blankets and 4 little pillows (Flip and Bounce scored the practice versions!)
I used their teddies to do the modelling for me.
I’ll try to do a tutorial for the stack and slash quilting method (it is so easy) that I used for this. The colour combos are a bit Random but Flip wanted me to use the ‘soft, warm material’ so we made them out of wincy.
Okay so in an effort to think of more cool things I can make for children’s parties I am brainstorming and asking for your input.
And because I need to do a random act of kindness for April I will have a giveaway for one lucky commenter. Watch out for a similar post for grown up gift ideas coming soon.
These are the ideas or things I have made or might make for gifts for children’s birthdays (links to previous pics/posts):
Pencil case – personalised
Personalised ABCs made by one aunty for my boys – SO loved
Baby shoes – I want to make some this year
Leave me your ideas or a link to something you’ve seen you think I could attempt. I sew, bake, and craft but I can’t crochet and I’m not much of a knitter or artist. If it is simple enough I am prepared to give many things an attempt. I don’t follow instructions very well – I put this down to my inherent creativity rather than my lack of self-discipline. Others may disagree!
For every idea you give me I will enter you into a draw to win either a personalised pencil-case OR an apron (adult or child sized). Let me know when you enter which one you’d like.
Open for 2 weeks closing Friday April 15th – so come back and enter every time you get inspired at 3am!!
