Some nights grandmas have sleepness nights so rather than waste the time I often do my best thinking during those non sleeping hours and came up with this idea for a 3D taggy for my granddaughter who loves textures and colours. I knew that one day there would be a use for all those scraps that are quickly multiplying in my sewing room. Instead of using ribbons sewn into the edges of fabric the petals can be grabbed and flipped - hence the 3D effect - by small hands.
Those scraps have also come in handy to cover foam blocks. I have put them away for the moment until she is a bit bigger.
Bub, her mummy and I went fabric shopping last week and the dress and little knickers - still to be fitted with elastic around the legs which I will do tomorrow when I have bubs to measure her - are the result of our expedition. Fabric was also purchased to make rompers for when the weather is cooler.
Still no grab ball finished yet as I thought that I had stronger thread to sew it altogether so that will need another trip to the fabric shop.
Back soon and in the meantime happy sewing.
