Good things come in twos..

I have been seeing and hearing a lot of 2s in January *grin* 
First, there was the double almost alike quilting project completed earlier in January, and now a commission for another double. 

A close friend back from my primary school years requested 2 baby quilt sets for her boys for their afternoon naps at the daycare. The boys age 4 and 6 are into different things and colours *relieve* as I was not up for another mirroring project.  From our chats on Facebook (thank god for FB) I came up with a plan and after another discussion we agreed on the sets.    

Each set includes: 
1 Baby quilt with name embroidery sized 110cm x 90cm 
1 pillow sized 16" x 9"
1 pillow case
1 drawstring knapsack  

For Aiman (4yo) I used the LECEIN fabrics I've had in my stash for at least 8 months (I'm a hoarder, can't you tell *sigh*). I mixed and matched the 2 fabrics and used a chili red moda fabric for the quilt binding. 

For Iman (6yo) I used the truck fabric (it's a favourite, I know!!) and matched it with the cute shinkansen dark blue border (seen here). 

The drawstring knapsacks that could fit all the items on the list. Still got rooms for the pillows as I've outsource them to Naza of Itsy Doodles Shop to make. I've made the pillowcases following her specifications.

Bea said...

So cute! The drawstring knapsack must be huge. I never quilted anything big like baby quilt....maybe someday.

MamaDaniel said...

suka yang merah tu.. especially the binding.. nmpk pedas & sedap.. hahaha..

cik sue.. tunjuk la gambar besar sikit.. tak puas mata ku menatapnyer... hehehehehe ;)

MyBotanG said...

Bea - it is not big, as baby quilts are quite small, the items fit snuggly with some extra space for a pair of clothing, etc.. do give it a try.. they are easier to make as compared to bags and addictive :)

Zila - I hate the small pictures as well.. but kena budget space..ari tu dah x leh upload cause all this while i main upload jek everything without editing.. how do you do it..?

Oh yes i am a hoarder too..I like the truck design,must try to find a fabric like that here...i just love making quilts especially huge ones,puas hati kalau penat pun..

Susu said...

Thanks for the email lastday. Then days after received your email, i tell my hubby about the plan to buy mesin jahit, he laughed and ask, ada masa ke? Ya Allah, ni lah dugaannya. ~Sabor je aku.

MyBotanG said...

Kak Ros - tak leh lawan ngan sifu.. saya budak baru blajar.. hehehe paling besar yg sue berani buat is single sized quilt.. queen or king x berani lagi.. space problem mainly and takut x termanage such sizes..

Susu - maybe hubby awak cakap mcm tu due to your daily routine yg pack kot.. so try to prove to him and yourself that you can manage sewing in between your hectic schedule baru la dia confident nak invest beli mesin jahit.. all the best..

MamaDaniel said...

cik Sue.. saya pun x terror.. haha.. kalo letak gmbr kecik, tapi bleh click to enlarge pun ok.. hheheee.. (aish..demand plak saya nih.. ) hehehehe

Hobby Mummy said...

Sharifah said...

MyBotanG said...

Zila, gambar jadik kecik cause I crop the size. tu yg biler click pun dia x besar mana.. but I put the original sized pictures on my FB page.. you can have a look there..

Maz and Pah - I agree, the colours are very vibrant and fun to work with.. suitable for kids, i think :)
