I have had this item crossed off my 101 in 1001 list for a while now but have not posted about it. That is because I have been waiting for little Miss Marlee's 1st birthday so I can give her the present I made before I posted about it.
I have to say I am pretty happy with how this worked out! I was not sure what to get Marlee for her first birthday. I wanted to try and steer away from clothes and toys since that is what everyone seems to get kids and I thought something for her room would be nice. Marlee is the only girl in her family with 4 brothers so I thought it would be nice to make her room super girly for her.
My embroidery still leaves a lot to be desired and there are a lot more stitches that I want to learn but I am glad I have jumped in and given it a go. Now that I have done it once I think it will be more likely I will do it again.
This was so much easier than I was expecting it to be and is the perfect gift for new babies. I think I will definately be making a few more of these in the future! I also think I will definitely be doing more embroidery. I have a little embroidery kit that I want to make and use as a panel for a pram quilt so that is next on the list.
