Whew! I must apologize! I've had these things made for a month and I keep letting Friday slip by me without getting a Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday post in.
I wanted to share the things that I made with a $2 Dora sheet that I bought at a yard sale. It was a nice, like new, thicker sheet and I couldn't pass up buying it! My intention was to make just Dora fabric bags with it, but then I seen child's quilt.
This quilt was the first time I've ever tried hand quilting. I hand quilted around the pictures on the fabric as well as I hand sewed the edges as well. It took quite awhile to get it done.
Here is the finished quilt, with a matching pillow:
Here is a close-up of some of the stitch work:
I also want to note---the pillow insert used for the Dora pillow was given to me by a lady at church. My mom's friend gave me the quilted backing piece used on the quilt. I did buy pink thread to sew with for $2.07 at Wal Mart. I already had the pink cotton thread that I stitched with. It was in with several used rolls my daughter had given me.
In total for less than $5, I was able to make these things. I love it!!
I also want to note that the fabric bags, as well as the quilt were sold in my etsy store about as soon as I listed them.
I am working on squares for a quilt. I do hope to have it completed by this time next Friday to post again!
