My clever crafty friend had another little girl! I made her a few things.
Firstly a little cotton cardigan with vintage buttons, details here:
Also, I got excited and made her a little sign to hang in her room. I found fabric in my stash! It's got roses and rose-buds on it! I thought I was being really clever, but probably everyone else has had this thought also so she'll be inundated with floral stuff. Hey ho, sorry Rose.
The letters are fabric appliquéd on to a felt background. I attached the fabric with double-sided fusible and stitched with a zig-zag for good measure. The letters are hand-sewn to a ribbon with buttons on the ends.
Welcome to the world, little Rose!
