. . . and then the other side. 90 2½" squares of Christmas fabrics in total!
Then I sewed them together and pinned them on to some bump for quilting.
Here they are all quilted and ready to be cut to shape and sewn together.
Of course, I had to embroider her name on the cuff . . .
. . . on both sides.
I added the tag that I'd made up on my embroidery machine earlier in the year.
Here it is hanging at the hooks at the back door with the knitted Santa inside ready to go to Emily. The other Santa is one my mum knitted for Joanna when she was Emily's age. Debbie also has one knitted by my mum. I don't know why the one I've knitted is a good bit smaller than the ones the girls have - I'm sure mum used the same pattern. Maybe Emily's will grow with age too! :oD
Next I made a couple of bibs for her to wear.
I hope to get a few more bibs made with suitably Christmassy emroideries or appliqués on the fronts. Fun times!
Debbie called me on the Facetime the other day because she'd given Emily a couple of pieces of fabric to play with. She loved it! Just like her Grammie! :oD
