Soon after Project Sewn I became an aunty for the second time.
Welcome baby Tristan!
Making stuffed dolls are so much fun and perfect new baby gift. Mr fox was made from Simplicity 1549. The pattern is so easy and quick to make. Well, quick when you not too busy chatting. My friend Cris came over for a crafternoon. We got so into it and made a bunny too.
To accompany Mr Fox, I originally planed to finish my second ever quilt. It’s been a WIP for 3 years OPPS!!!
A little quilting tip for you: There are many ways to tack a quilt. My favourite is using a tacking gun! Makes the process so easy. The trick is to get the layers very straight by holding the edged with masking tape, and tack away. Making sure you won’t tack where you plan to quilt.
When quilting (with my walking foot), looking at the machined quilted lines, I felt a bit disappointed. I am rushing this and I’m hating the result. So I spend the following evening unpicking everything.
Next day I went to sewing club. Jacq was telling us how she been using her scraps to make small projects and she just made a baby tag blanket. She than pull out her bag this cute project mentioning she didn’t have a recipient.

Jacq save the day when she GAVE it to me. Sewing friends are life saviours! Look how awesome her baby tag blanket matches with the stuffed fox I made for Tristan. Crises over overdue baby gift averted!
