With the excitement around the arrival of the royal baby, Prince George of Cambridge, we’re all keen to start sewing adorable projects to celebrate! If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a baby, Quilt a Gift for Little Ones features 22 heart-felt designs to quilt and sew.
From decorations for the baby shower and handy accessories for mum to nursery essentials, fun toys and beautiful quilts, Barri Sue Gaudet has come up with some gorgeous projects to make in anticipation of a new arrival. There are fast makes for beginners or those last-minute gifts, as well as some more time-consuming and challenging pieces, like cot bumpers and travel bags. The designs are cleverly categorised so that you can choose one to suit whatever time you have, whether it’s an evening, a weekend or a week.
The special baby gifts in Quilt a Gift for Little Ones include techniques such as hand sewing, machine piecing, embroidery stitches and simple appliqué. The motifs include storks, teddy bears, bunnies and farmyard animals. There are also flowers and hearts for a girl and a cute rocking horse or star for a boy.
Every chapter has a different colour theme, but all of the projects can be made with your favourite designs and can be adapted for a boy or a girl by swapping the appliqué motifs. Gingham and polka dot fabrics have been used with pastel shades and some fleece fabrics for a subtle look, but you could go much bolder if you prefer!
The book covers every type of gift any new parent could possibly want! There are sweet booties and a bunny comforter for the newborn, a useful chair caddy and a pretty wall tidy for extra storage, cot decorations and quilts for the nursery, a beautiful brag book for displaying baby photos, and lots more. You’re sure to find something to suit and a design that you love!
