The first was requested by Apryl, and it was a gift for her friend's recently born daughter.
The blanket was yellow fleece and I appliqued onto it a little bumble bee. As this was my first attempt at this sort of thing, I was pleased with the results.
Next came a Comfort Blanket
Then a couple of fleece Christmas Stockings.
I'm not sure that I got the shape quite right but I'm sure the recipients won't notice come Christmas morning!!
On to some blankets that are to be Christmas presents for 3 grandchildren who live in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Each of them were double-layed (as it's cold over there!!) and had the child's name sewn on along with a motif/image.
The applique was done in fleece too so that there will be no problems when washed.
I had originally cut each letter from different patterned fleeces but they never seemed to look quite right so in the end I made them all from the same.
If I make similar ones in future I think that having the back of the blanket to match the letters would just tie it all in nicely.
Last, but not least, are a couple of Christmas Present Sacks.
These are HUGE!! (1m high by 75cm wide) so have loads of room for all those gifts from Santa!!
I cut the initial letters from a script that I thought looked like elf shoes - and added a few stars for extra detail.
I did enjoy making all of these and hope their new owners like them too.
