red,white & blue the boys love you

Easter holidays are fast approaching, with some school children already on vacation in our area. This means lots of holiday makers & extra people visiting the store in which I sell my sean-the- prawn goodies, so I like to top up my stock. I have decided to make a couple of cot quilts/throws & probably 3 of my little puff sleeved drawstring waist dresses (picnic dresses).
These snap shots show my first completed quilt made from gorgeous Japanese craft fabrics & screen printed red linen fabric from the Prints Charming girls. I also threw in a little blue & white stripped ticking fabric to pull it all together.
I backed the quilt with a very feint, fine beige & brown stripe printed fabric. The border is a very narrow, hand stitched binding which is the same fabric as the backing.

Originally intended for a little boys room, I now think it is quite contemporary & could sit well in any room of the house where even the adults could enjoy it's playfulness. The monkey fabric is just too cute, love it!

Hey Leah,

I sent this to you this morning straight after you emailed me. Sorry, you didn't get it for some reason.

The dress fits my Pepper, who is on the chubby side of size 3-closer to 4.
I think it will fit a 4 year old as a tunic top well.
The chest is 33cm, the length is 53cm.

Let me know what you think.
I'm happy to refund or for you to post it back if it doesn't fit well.

Hope you guys are well and happy.

Lots of love,

Kate X
