So I finally found the gifts I talked about in this post. (hope you weren't holding your breath!)
Parker's Aunt wanted a blanket made for him so she asked me to create it. I recommended one of my kids all time favorites - a whole cloth, minky backed blanket. The kids love them, they are super soft and can take a bajillion washings.
Now you know I love pieced quilts BUT if you are wanting something custom made for you and are on a budget which in no way means cheap.. don't get me wrong... minky is involved! I think these are fantastic. And seriously the kids all time favorite to snuggle up with... not that you are allowed to touch any of their other blankets... Bella will cut you!
I quilted a zigzag to follow the fabrics zigzags and it turned out perfectly.
If you didn't notice I appliquéd the same animals I made for the invite onto the quilt.
The left over fabric turned into a bag -- because we all know I can't help myself when it comes to bags!
I will try to get my gift up on the blog soon.... I have finally taken the time to dig up the last years worth of crafting and I am trying to get it sorted to show to you- I hope you will enjoy it there is a lot of really good stuff!
