Tonight I worked on something a little bit different than my usual sewing work. I'd already finished and packaged and sent off today's work, and so I got to work on a project I've been envisioning for a while. It was a little tunnel/ blanket/ cuddle spot for Maggie. She's constantly making little forts and wrapping herself up in blankets and from watching her play I began to come up with ideas for a sort-of-blanket that she would like.
I wasn't sure how big I would make it, but as I went through my pile of half made quilts a picture began to come together in my head. 8 quilt fronts later it was finished. Here's what I came up with. First, here are the fabrics:
I began by making two tubes and sewing them together. The finished result was this:
Maggie's bear (which is bigger than Maggie) came downstairs with me to help me take a few pictures and show how big it is:
And it has lots of different fabrics (flannel, plain old cotton and two different types of cuddle fabric) for lots of different textures:
Mama Bear approves. Hopefully Mae does too!
Now to get a little sleep before morning gets here!
