I quite often see things on Pinterest, which I love and would love to make, but they would not have a purpose. Sometimes I pin them anyway, hoping that an event or occasion will come up and I can get my craft on!
A few weeks ago I saw this tutorial for a quilted baby book. I thought the idea was adorable! It combined a range of skills; quilting, embroidery, appliqué. Many of which I haven’t completed recently or for a number of years. I can confidently say that I can do all three. However, I haven’t done them for a while so this skill set is a bit rusty!
I have a friend back in England, who at the time of this creation, was pregnant but didn’t know if she was having a boy or a girl. I thought that this would be a lovely gift as it is very neutral! I was organised when I went shopping for the fabric. I made a comprehensive list and tried not to overbuy on fabric. Even though I did this, I still have loads of spare material left over!
