To say I'm behind in blogging my projects would be a bit of an understatement. Ok, it would be a huge understatement. Uninterrupted computer time isn't something I tend to get a lot of.
Right now I've sent the children to harass, errrr, I mean find their dad. He's off working in the basement. That means empty kitchen and precious moments for mama. (yeehaa!)
With only a few exceptions to date, there are always some scraps left over when I make a quilt. I work my hardest to include part of every piece that is sent to me, but sometimes there are also pieces that just don't fit the design. These scraps can sometimes be used to make an adorable special friend for your little someone and/or a teeny tiny toy quilt for snuggles.
Introducing Little Bunny and teeny tiny toy quilt (I'll share the actual memory quilt that these scraps came from at a later date...today it's all about the bunny and teeny tiny quilt).
This little bunny was made with a left over sleeper and some scraps. The zipper and snap on the front of the sleeper are functional, so little ones can play and practice their fine motor skills (or mama can zip it open and closed when they feel a wave of nostalgia wash over them and can taste how much they loved those days of tiny zippers and tiny fingers and toes).
The teeny tiny quilt is perfect for playing & for keeping little bunny cozy. It's also a nice size for a lovey and has a 2 tags and a strip of detail from one of her dresses as some added texture for little ones to enjoy handling.
The teeny tiny toy quilt was backed with this super cute cupcake fabric.
A little bunny isn't complete without a cute little tail. You can also see the hand stitched eyes and nose that bring this little critter to life.
Tucked in & packed up for the journey home.
If you have had a quilt made and haven't seen it posted, fear not. It's not because I don't love it. I really love each project I work on. I'm working on getting them all up, it's just going to take a little time. If you have photos of your quilt in action or want to share more of why you chose to have a quilt or toy made please drop me a line. I'd love to feature more about the story behind your quilt. Every story is so unique and full of meaning.
