I am really happy with how it turned out. Not too sure if softies are my thing yet. I like that that are reasonably quick and you can use little bits of your fav fabric at a time. I did think it was a little fiddly at times, didn't help I was pushed for time! Or that there was a mistake in the pattern pieces. Tummy (gusset) was too long.
I have used the same fabrics on the giraffe as I used on mum's 50th quilt a couple of years ago. So they will be matchy on her bed :)
She has a little scarf because it is so cold down south and we don't her to catch a cold. I have just pined the scarf on until the girls get home from school, they can then help me choose a button to use instead.
Mum and sis will be here tonight! For a week! Can't wait. So if I am a little absent it is because we are out catching crocs or freezing in the pool! xox
By the way, thank you all so much for your comments! And thank you sweet emmelie for you blog award! So lovely! Will post my nominations after mum's visit.
