Colour My World!

I was inspired by Angela @ Cut to Pieces to make ......


this!

A friend's little girl is celebrating her first birthday soon and I thought this would make the cutest gift.

Firstly, this is what I made for Ava when she was born....


I loved scrambling through my stash looking for fabric......

(And my stash is SO big, I haven't made a dint in it with this little project) 




I also enjoyed fussy cutting some pieces for extra interest.......


"Sunshine yellow each day....."



"The green from the grass and blue from the sky up above...."

I found some great 'number' fabric in my stash too.



I certainly learnt a great deal during the construction process.

And it will be easy to throw in the wash when it gets dirty (chewed?)


And I couldn't resist colouring your day with Pet!


"....colour my world with happiness!"
