birhtday presents...





a friend of mine and her boy have a birthday coming up. i'm not usually making gifts for such occasions, but this time i just had to, quickly sit at my machine and use up some of the small scraps from the past years. i have not seen my friend for about 9months, we were neighbors before and really enjoyed watching each others creations coming alive.
i hope those two hot pads, or what ever she is going to do with them will bring her joy. i had fun making them and thinking of the two of them. it's so sweet to think that they both will unwrap their little presents and discover that they got a very similar hand made item.
i love the way the back turned out, there is so much texture in it! maybe because i didn't iron the pads at the end. i think they look just fine without the iron being put on them.

those scraps are fun to look at, a top for me when i was pregnant with thea, a dress for naomi, a meitei, a skirt for naomi, a village frock for naomi, an other little dress for naomi, a bonnet for thea, a dress for a friends little s and one more for little s....
