I was invited to a baby shower for Sara and soon to be born William.
This fabric was cute enough on it's own. I didn't want to detract from it.
I wanted it fully featured.
I love the sweater vest!
I didn't do a lot of quilting.
I just randomly quilted shapes among and around the foxes, sort of like "tying" a quilt.
I used black ric rac around the edge which really made a cute outline to the middle square.
And then didn't have quite enough polka-dot fabric for the back....
I'm always running out because I am not very precise in my math and measurements for how much fabric I'll need.
So I added this little strip of the foxes in the off-center of the back.
The hounds-tooth binding pulled together that hipster look.
Turned out cute! And so easy! (Sometimes it's all about the fabric you found.)
And my favorite thing:
She uses it.
Look at William's bow tie! Dressed to match?
(I hope she doesn't mind that I posted her picture. It's just too cute!)
