I was so excited for my daughter Isla to start walking so that I could make cute little skirts and dresses for her to wear. I had made her a patchwork skirt when I was pregnant but I had no idea what I was doing, and I made it so big that she hasn't even had a chance to wear it yet. Whoops.
So I thought I'd try again now that she's trotting around and the weather is warming up. And I thought I would try the patchwork thing again. It was much easier this time around. Mum had a few quilting tools that made cutting the squares a breeze. And I got mum to sew the waistband for me - I'm still a bit scared of elastic. But I did the rest myself - and I'm pretty proud of myself!
On the t-shirt, I hand-stitched on two hearts. The bigger heart is Liberty Fairford print and the smaller heart is Mitsi (red). I decided on satin stitch to create a strong, bright border.
I couldn't be happier and I can't wait to see how my beautiful girl looks. Very pretty I'm sure.
