There is always going to be new babies and, like my previous post, it’s lovely to give a gift that is personalised making it a little bit special.
Because I like to make items for people that are tailored to what they ask for but also made to suit the little person, I like them all to be a little different. While I’ve made a number of similar pandas and bibs before (they seem to be pretty popular), I am always asked to pop their name, date of birth and/or weight on their somewhere.
For a recent baby gift set that I made, there was the said popular panda and bib (still mega cute though), there was also a little laundry bag for baby’s little mits, booties and baby grows. As far as laundry bags go, they’re nothing special, so I thought I would jazz it up with of felt applique.
This [always my favourite] Japanese printed fabric, which I got from Etsy, has little robots printed (as well as Pinocchio…cute!) so I decided to pick out the robot and use this as my applique shape. I used felt which I find really nice to work with, also adding a bit of a different texture to the fabric item. I finished off my robot by added some buttons for buttons.
