alphabet chart

#14 Alphabet chart on the WIP list is an oldie.  I started it ages ago.  If you look at the related posts at the bottom, you'll see that the second post is also the post where I got my first ever sewing machine!  Probably time to get cracking on this one.

It was originally intended as a 2nd birthday present for my goddaughter.  She'll be 5 in September.  5th birthday present then!



P is for pig.  I used a satiny kind of fabric, added a button for a nose and chain stitched around. These are all hand-applique by the way.  As I started this before I got a sewing machine, I was doing it by hand... how much quicker it would be by machine!


I love this little bunny!  I added a pompom for his tail.  It's probably good she didn't get this for her 2nd birthday as all the little buttons and pompoms and stuff would be choking hazards, now I can feel free to add whatever I like.


I found an offcut of a felt-type fabric.  I say felt-type as it's felt-like on the front, but not on the back.  No idea what it is or where it came from, but it works well for a little sheep.  He doesn't have a face.


U is for Umbrella.  Yes, I do know my alphabet, but I'm not necessarily doing them in order!  I'm not too keen on this one.  I was going to add beads for raindrops but I'm not sold on it...

I love all of them. The umbrella looks great, but maybe you can embroider the handle so that it's a little thinner? Then add the raindrops!

Alphabet samplers are wasted on 2 year olds! Five is a much better age and stage for them :)

That's going to be sweet when it's done - I think bead raindrops would be really adorable (think clear or silver), but you could also embroider some :D

They are all adorable! How about using some beads to make the outline of raindrops?

Jane Galley said...

I am sure she will love it nonetheless. I think the hand applique makes it all the more special

Having gleefully spent the last ten minute going through your alphabet posts, I have now decided that your jigsaw is GREAT, your mouse is super cute and your umbrella is PERFECT! You need raindrops. I love the ombre shading on the brolly. x
