And speaking of perfect. Do you remember when I showed you this?
I have been working on it, slowly, for me. I am loving how it turned out. I am no master craft sewer, you should have heard me on the phone talking to a seamstress about having the quilt meandered. (Is that even a word?) ANyway she kept asking me about size and measurements and I was like "I don't know, it's this much." holding up fingers or arms in apporximent size. Yes I know she could see me, and I should know how to read a ruler but I don't work that way.
So I pasted on the $45 meandering stitching and sewed it how I know how to do it.
I think it turned out perfectly adorable!
Okay I do own a ruler I just use it to cut straight not measure!
Hear is the back side, I tacked it together.
With the remaining fabric I made two "lovies". Flannel-ly soft elephants on one side and silky grey on the other. OOH I love lovies. Both my kids had them and continue to ask me to make them more.
What made it extra fun was just before I started sewing, Chris and Stacey decide on a name for the little guy. So instead of thinking baby boy, I got to think about his name. Which I'm not giving away. Not yet at least.
