My friend's wee boy turned two last week. Like many little boys his age, he absolutely loves cars. As part of his birthday a gift, I made him this cushion...
I think he quite liked it because when I gave it to him, he hugged it a lot and shouted "cars" several times! As usual, I just bought a plain cushion (navy this time from here) and used bondaweb to appliqué on the felt and fabric car shapes, then added some bright buttons for the wheels. It was quite nice to make something for a little boy for a change as I often make things for wee girls having a daughter myself as well as six nieces!
Above is a little cross stitch picture I am working on for another friend who is due to have a baby boy next month. It is another Stitching Shed kit and has been so nice to work on, such lovely bright colours and a sweet design.
I am also busily working away on the little knitted blanket for my friends wee girl, as well as an appliqué picture, crochet brooches, and hopefully Miss M's little summer dress! Lots and lots to keep me occupied! What are you knitting, stitching or crafting at the moment?
