If I had to describe having two kids under two in one word it would be: relentless! It feels like someone is always crying, wanting to be fed, needing a nappy change, wanting a cuddle… I don’t think I’ll be going for 3 under 3!
But somehow, I’ve got two sleeping kids and a few minutes to blog (see how long it lasts), but not quite the energy to put together the tutorials I’ve got in the works. So, I thought I’d share some close-up photos of the appliques from my son’s Big Boy Bed Quilt Cover.
This was only my third attempt at appliques, and they are far from perfect. (Why did I have to choose images with so many small circles???) I enjoyed making them though – I got into the flow at my sewing machine. I used Heat’n’Bond Lite to fix the appliques to the backing material and sewed a zigzag stitcharound each piece in coordinating thread (not brave enough to try contrasting thread yet. I learned a lot as I went – how to turn corners and go around curves. Maybe one day I’ll put together and tips and hints post!
Not sure how long the peace and quiet will last, so I better get a few things done! More posts on the big boy room coming soon…
