The tiny patchwork
I made last week has found its home in this little sleeping bag for my son's stuffed animal. The pattern,

, is excellent. It comes in three sizes. I made the largest size. The only change I made was to quilt the mattress, as well as the cover. I love how it has a little, built-in pillow too.
And of course, I made two, one for each son. My older child requested no patchwork, so his was a bit quicker to make. How fun would these be to make as birthday or holiday gifts for the kids on your list?
I learned a new trick from this pattern too: single fold bias binding. It is perfect for small projects like this with curved edges, and it looks so slick. I was even able to do it entirely by machine. I'll definitely use this technique again.
Seriously! That is totally adorable. I am saving this. I am thinking birthday or Christmas gifts! Totally adorable, Alex!
Love it!! What a great idea! Speaking of kids that love their stuffed toys... I found Miss 4 in bed with all her toys last night and they all had nappies on. Nothing like making sure no one wets the bed! ;)
Oh, my gosh!! How cute can you get? :D
Oh. So. Cute! Congratulations on your placemats and runner being in the e-zine, Alex! You are a very talented lady!
So stinkin' adorable.
They look gorgeous and I love the quilting that you've done on them. I'm so pleased you like the pattern. Florence x
