A Quilt for Caramel, his stuffed (but breathing!) sleeping puppy
I had a little bit of Olaf fabric scraps still left, so I said we could cut out some squares. He wanted to put red with it. (but of course)
|I told him he needed to draw a design.|
|So pleased with his plan|
I pressed them, and at that point we came upstairs, away from Bella. He is very allergic to cats. I drew the lines with a Micron pen and he cut them out. Boy, did he do a great job for only 7!
|Planning the design|
We did the pillowcase turn method. For the backing I sewed together some scraps from the pajama bottoms he's wearing that I made him along with some scraps of the Cat in the Hat fabric from his I Spy quilt. Scraps of Warm 'n Natural was the batting. I "steered" while he pushed the gas to sew the three layers together, leaving an opening for turning...
|Excited to turn it right side out|
|Here he's doing the wavy, aka "craggly" (his term) lines down the centre of each square|
"When I grow up, I want to work in a sewing shop, Nana."
Along with playing football in the NFL.
|All done! It fits Caramel perfectly.|
|One of his favourite presents, a plastic hockey stick and puck he bought with a gift card to Dollarama from Santa! The J.J. Watt jersey from Auntie Dayna is of course, #1.|
