It took time for sure. I had so many different sheets i had used and fabric i had picked up to make it as crazy and vintage retro as possible.
I am so happy with the the way it turned out. You dont have to have all the patches all lined up evenly, i like that its a little odd looking. I tied it all it with a fabric border and i love it! i cant wait to give it to them!
i think im gonna try making one for my baby soon to be born!
Its hard to capture the whole thing in a photo...:(
I had to give it a patchwork union jack, and i used pink instead of red to make it a bit more country cottage! Its my favourite patch
I found these beautiful dollies at the thrift store, and used them to customise another patch
And here is my cheat hint for you... i was going to use fabric on the other side and quilt batting stitched into the inside, but i like to keep things simple and so when i came across a cream cuddly fleece blanket, i knew i wanted that to be the back. Way more cozy for the two newlyweds to snuggle up with! (And much easier)
This had much satisfaction at the end, but it was definitely a longer porject that most crafts i like, but this one had heart in it!
Enjoy the rest of your summer, and im sure to share some pics from my england vacation when i get back!
