I posted recently about the baby girl quilt I am making for a special friend.
It includes some gorgeous Russian doll fabric,
Anyway, I was chatting to another special friend
(one who will one day have a very cool blog I can link to here 🙂
and she suggested a softie to match the quilt.
So here is the progress so far…
I photocopied a scrap of fabric then enlarged it to the size I wanted.
Next I traced the doll onto paper to create my pattern.
Then I used my special mesh transfer canvas to copy the pattern to my fabric.
The embroidery cottons are simply chosen to match the fabric.
A very sweet idea.

Would love to hear more about your "special mesh transfer canvas"!
Awww…that's going to be gorgeous! You are a very special friend 🙂
Hi! I'm now following you via Follow Friend Sunday! Is a softie a doll for babies? It looks like it's going to be cute, and I love that it's going to match!
