The girls and I enjoy tackling sewing projects together. They are always asking me to let them sew a new project they have in their mind. When they were invited to a birthday party for their friend Kaatje last weekend they decided that they wanted to make her a picnic blanket.
They picked out all the material they wanted to use, I cut all the pieces, they helped me sew them together:
Then we pinned it to the back, quilted it and put the binding on along with a tie so Kaatje could roll it up and carry it along on her picnicking adventures. Happy Birthday, Kaatje! The girls had fun making you a gift!
I forgot to take a picture of the finished blanket, but we'll post one when I get one. It was 'fancy'!
