So I have boxes of clothes, that I just can't get rid of. I am too sentimental. I know I can't keep them all, but parts of them make me so happy. Late one night I had an idea. I gathered whatever material I had on hand, and started cutting and hand stitching. All the cute little patches, or the sweet dress that I just loved the soft material of. I ended up with this.
In hindsight, there are things I would change. I still love it though. I only made it is big as the remnants of fabric I had to finish it with. Even the bias tape I had lying around, so I didn't spend anything to make this.
The flower, and a heart on the blanket I just cut out of one of her dresses and created the shape. I also filled it with batting so it poofs up, and she likes to squeeze it. The rest are just directly from a shirt or something, and I glued it on then hand stitched all around.
It's a soft flannel in front, and that wonderful minky dots in back. She loves it, and I had fun making it. I think I will do one for Cooper next...
What do you think?
