I took off for a quick 24 hour round trip to Sydney for my gorgeous nephew's first birthday over the weekend - I do love me a piece of dinosaur cake with my champagne ...
While I was snaffling cake and champagne with the 1-year-old crowd, a birthday party was happening back up here, for an older crowd - think jumping castle, rather than plastic-rainbow-ball-playpen-pit.
Vee and I shared some fabric to make a quilt and Pipsqueak cushion as our birthday pressies - we used gorgeous Heather Baileys, with a bit of hot pink AMH and some precious Sweetwater Authentic:
The quilt binding is scrappy (our favourite kind!):
And the quilt-back is made from a fabulous Ikea house print that we both love:
Pipsqueak has been fancied up with some wool felt, fabric and perle 8 thread, to look super cute inside her little patchworked house:
Most of the fabrics were purchased from this gorgeous shop, and of course the sweet Pipsqueak is a screen-printed panel of our own creation (pop across to our very own shop to have a look at all our little screen-printed Pipsqueaks and her friends).
Vee and I are now back to sewing for the shop, and the looming Christmas market, which is being held on November 18.
Hope your weekend was a good one.
'til next time xoxo cat
