Moving house has involved 2 interim stays, meaning no sewing has been taking place for over 2 weeks. I feel the void! It will be another 2 weeks before we reach our final destination and the sewing can begin again.
I wanted to share something I made just before all my beloved fabrics and sewing machine were packed away in storage.
This was a custom order for my signature fabric basket with pockets all round for a little girl to place in her dollhouse. The request included a matching pillow and quilt for the doll.
I used pastel fabrics with a modern country cottage feel that would appeal to a young child.
The interior fabric is a tiny floral pink on cream that is often found in doll's clothing.
This is the front pocket
and the back pocket
I used the same fabrics in a simple strip patchwork pattern for the quilt and pillow
The reverse matches the interior of the basket, giving a second look option.
I decided not to quilt any pattern on the quilt because it is small, a bit bigger than A4, and I liked the clean lines. I used a double fusible wadding so the sandwich is well attached and finished it by stitching all round the edge for a faux pipping effect,
The doll's quilt and pillow fit nicely in the basket
I hope there is a happy child and doll out there enjoying these.
