Lily's Get Better Box - Sneak Peak!

After returning home from a lovely beach weekend with friends and family last night, I was on a sewing roll putting a few things together for Lily's Get Better Box (more info about the box in this post).  Her surgery is tomorrow (it came up so fast!) so I'm trying to quickly get everything together. 

I sewed this little bunny using some cotton and flannel I already had in my stash.  The pattern is from Martha Stewart Living and you can find all the info here.  I don't think I've ever had a sewing project come together so quickly and without a hiccup as this one.  Took me about an hour from start to finish!


I also sewed up a few cotton bandanas trimmed with ribbon (don't worry, Mum, I will give them a final press before they go in the box!) also using fabric and ribbon from my stash.  Not only will these be great for playtime during the summer, but I think they may come in handy to keep her hair out of her eyes after surgery.  These are a great little stashbuster - and look so cute on toddlers!  I'll be sharing a tutorial on these with you next week.


Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a wonderful day!
