I hope you are all well and being creative. I have been rather a busy little bee. I finished the cardigans for my niece and even knitted another along with some hats but forgot to take photos before they went to their new homes. I've only a hat still here as it is waiting on a Pom Pom to finish it off.
In my last post which does seem an age ago now eek! I showed you this picture, well I can now reveal what I did with them. I was inspired by Helen Philips and think my little nieces will love these at Christmas.
Apologies for the poor photos but as I am sure you are aware the light here at this time of year is just plain old grey and no matter how or where I take photos everything just looks washed out.
My model is little Miss Rabbit knitted a good few years ago now, she was terribly keen to try out the beds. She says they are very comfy now with the new mattress, pillow and quilt.
I love the pretty pink backing fabric so the girls can use either side.
This little bed is a much nicer shade of pink in reality.
I've used a mixture of new fabrics and scraps from stash.
I wish the lighting was better *sigh*
I love this red spotty binding it's so cheerful looking.
I decided to make the little quilts big enough to drape over the sides of the beds as we don't want any cold dolls or teddies now do we?
I cut out 2" squares and pieced them together with a 1/4" seam allowance.
A simple quilt to make but I am still rather chuffed with myself!
While I am talking about quilts I finally *fanfare* finished my big quilt.
I've kept it simple with a simple plain border and basic quilting.
Not a great picture of the back.
Ahh that's better you can see the plaid I've used to back the quilt. Since taking these pics the quilt has been washed and tumbled and most importantly is in use!
Thank you for stopping by.
