Another commission that I took on recently was a christening gift for a little girl called Sarah Eliza and is in the form of a pyjama case that has an appliqued image on the front, blanket stitched around the edges and her name and christening details on a flap at the back.
The applique image is of a castle and a princess among the trees. The pyjama case itself is lightly quilted and has the edges finished in a contrasting blanket stitch and tied with a ribbon bow. The ocassion is marked in the text on the flap of the case.
Sarah is about three years old and the colours in her gift, hopefully go with what I understand of the decorations she has in her bedroom. The case itself, has images within the castle and princess picture that are becoming ‘regulars’ in my applique pictures and are such as the sunshine and birds.
The person gifting it is a happy customer so I’m happy too.
