Little Bo Peep

12.27.2013

Remember this baby blanket I bought last summer? 


What a sad mess....


Not anymore!!

I have it all fixed up and looking lovely. Its ready to be hung up on a wall. =)


I know the white thread used for her body outline really disappears with the background fabric, but I knew I couldn't redo it and have it look so nice. I figured it was best to leave it as it is. 


Love the lamb...


I am very glad I was chosen to rescue this little gem. =)

  9. Magnificent! I never could have imagined such a change. Kudos to you for cutting it up and rearranging things to give it new life - and color with those extra fabrics. And I noticed your new banner last week. Very nice, all of it.
