The next project requires a long story, too. The other day at Joanns, Kate wanted a Tangled/Rapunzel blanket and I of course was not buying it for $30 (not to mention my issues with the princess trope, but that's another post)(hey! that was more at the store). I agreed to get some Rapunzel fleece and some pink fleece and I was going to make her one of those no-sew tie blankets and she refused to let me do that, so I had 1 1/4 yards of pink fleece (end of a bolt so $2) sitting around. She uses the piece of Rapunzel fleece as a blanket.
I love this but again with the not needing to spend that. So I came up with this:
I used a toddler pillow for the form and did the letter like I did the number on her birthday shirt. And that is the pink fabric I used for her bow holder (I thought there were 2 yards of that pink toile. There's 4.)
Craig was really impressed with this, especially the zig-zag stitching. He wanted to know how I did it . . . um, with the machine.
