Abbey's friend recently turned 10. Her favourite colour is green.
Abbey and I talked and thought for awhile on what to give this little friend, something hand-made and something green...
So, first to be made was this 'quilt', really it is more of a throw than a quilt.
 I wanted it to be lightweight but have a quilted look.
The top is quilted using up all of my green scraps, a men's cotton shirt, and some squares 
collected from charm square packs, randomly sewn together. 
The middle layer (batting) is a thrifted flannelette sheet.
The backing is a thrifted cotton sheet. 

And sticking with the green theme, the second gift made was this quirky beanie;
happily modelled by Abbey;
The birthday girl loved her green gifts!

  1. Loving that beanie!! I'm feeling like I NEED one of those - so fresh and pretty looking. Also really love those shell (I think they're shells) heart outlines on the wooden boards (in your blog header) - nature gives us such gorgeous materials for decorations.
