A busy week of sewing

Its been a week of 1/4 inch seams, patterns, scraps, pieceing and satisfaction for me. I managed to get a lot of pending work finished. On my list were special orders with an Emirates Airline theme.  One of them was a baby hamper for a little boy. One of his parents works for the airline, so my cousin thought it would be a great idea to do the hamper in the colour scheme of their uniform.









So here's what I did. What do you think?

The hamper had a pair of baby sneakers + bootie bag , the ergonomic burpie, and bib. My favourite part was the tie..with the Emirates stripes.



Thats done and dusted...

Onto the next....an Emirates airline inspired quilt for another little boy. This was one of the most difficult quilts I've done to date. The meadows at the bottom took a lot of time and patience. I wanted the scrappy look with no regular planned cuts. The top features applique airballoons and a plane with photos of the baby looking out of the windows. I thought it would be cute.




The scrappy- pieced meadows







I loved the colours of this quilt when I bought all the fabrics and couldn't wait to complete it. The back is a cheerful print which co-ordinates really well with all the colours in the front

Quilt away!

This is a personalised quilt I just finished with special quiltling fabric and 6 chosen photos. Guaranteed to be a gift that keeps on giving.

Just ordered a fresh batch of adorable fabric and can't wait to start making all those quilts. I'm getting a stock ready for the gift giving season coming up towards the end of the year... yes end of the year! When you have a toddler running riot around the house, you need all the advance planning and time you can get.
After much public demand I' m going to take part in the Designers Market at Dubai Festival Center, which happens every first Friday. Watch this space to know exactly when. Don't worry, in case you forget I will also update all you followers and fans on Picou Picou Baby's facebook page.

By the way, thanks to all Picou Picou Baby fans for crossing 100 "LIKES"!
