Recently a friend asked if I was willing to make a donation for a charity auction she’s a part of. I thought of the Twins in Stripes, Minus a Twin quilt I just finished as an option but just the quilt felt too one dimensional to grab someones attention at an auction. So I whipped up this little pillow, a trio of burp clothes and a little outfit to round it out.
The pillow picks up on the ruffle from the quilt and would be perfect for a nursery rocker. It looked a little plain so I added the bow which prompted me to add the bow to the quilt as well. Just gave it that little charm it needed.
The back of the pillow is a button closure so really it can be reversible.
The trio of burp clothes are Monaluna’s prints on the front (Gumdrops, Buttons and Wonderland) and organic cotton fleece on the back side.
This little onesie and the hat are hand embroidered with designs lifted from the Wonderland print on the burp cloth.
All and all I was proud of how it all came together. Hopefully it does well in the auction!
If anyone is curious to learn how to transfer a design to fabric, like I did for the onesie, post in the comments.
If there is interest I can put together a tutorial.
