I’ve been busy over the past week doing more knitting and crocheting but mostly I’ve been busy making a Christmas present for one of my daughters. She likes flannel pj’s bottoms so I’ve been busy making up a pair of those. I had seen some teddy bear material in Walmart so winged it and bought two metres. Well sure enough I needed an extra .4 metres so I ended up having to buy enough for one of the leg patterns.
So what to do with the extra material? I decided that I would buy some matching flannel and make her a lap quilt to snuggle in to watch television at night. The quilt is just a very simple pattern and made up quickly. It took longer to do the machine quilting – again very simple stitch in the ditch quilting. Finally the binding which is always time consuming but it’s done and I’m pleased with the results and I hope she will be as well. The picture is kind of busy. I folded over the bottom of the quilt to show the blue flannel backing and the pj’s are folded in half.
