Our dear friends have just become grand parents for the first time to a little boy, how absolutely fabulous and so exciting!
There is never a better excuse to get the sewing machine out again to make some thing special for a new little person. Having only just made the baby girl draw string bag for baby Fearne, I thought another would be super to make, but this time thinking about a little boy! This is what I came up with….
Adorable fabric called “Tweet Together” by Monkey Bow” for “StudioFabrics”
The felt colours I decided were a pretty good match for the appliqué
Used the same fabric for both sides with this bag, however did appliqué on both sides as I have become comfortable with this stitch on my sewing machine. Machine appliqué isn’t hard, just takes a little time to perfect especially if you have a shape with curves, you will need to get the rhythm of turning your piece as you stitch…
I used a solid plain pretty blue for the draw string binding as I thought this contrast looked quite good!
The “closed” ruffled top of the bag.
As I had a tiny bit extra fabric left over I couldn’t resist, to use it up on this little string of bunting!
Wrapped and ready to give!
Bye for now, Jay x
