Quick post this morning, mainly to hold myself accountable. Growing up, each year my mom made one of my Christmas gifts. One year, she made the most amazing doll house ever, another year it was a ballerina wall hanging for my room. I’m not sure if I fully appreciated the gifts until starting the same tradition for my little guy.
I’m a fabric hoarder, and often buy fabrics without a planned purpose. Over the summer I purchased a flannel fabric with trucks and cars. Zac is always pulling that fabric out of my stash and carries it around, pointing and saying “tuk, car, tuk, car…” I knew months ago that it would be part of his homemade gift this year. What I didn’t know (till yesterday) was WHAT that gift would be.
After searching Pinterest for recipes, I came across this- a quilt pattern. While I make t-shirt quilts all the time, I’ve never attempted something like this before. I’m anxious, excited, and petrified I won’t finish in time, but ready or not, here I go! I purchased this pattern, and ordered my fabric last night. I will check in periodically and update as I go. (The fabric pictured top right is what I already have.)
