I'm finally getting around to showing you the projects I've made for Making Gifts Magazine. The first is the Little Tiger Baby Set! I designed and made two appliqués, and sewed one to a bought baby vest, and the other to a bib which I made from scratch.
Each appliqué is made from individually cut pieces of cotton fabric, bonded to a base fabric and then machine satin-stitched around the edge.
These appeared in issue three of Making Gifts and you can get the whole instructions in the back issue, still available on their site. However, I'm going to put up a tutorial for one of the appliqués in the next couple of days, so watch this space!
I had four projects published in issue three and one project in issue four, so I'll be featuring those over the next couple of weeks. Issue five of Making Gifts is due to be published in early July, so keep your eyes peeled if you go into Hobbycraft, you might see a familiar face in there!
