I LOVE Dr Seuss books. And so does my Mum.
I LOVE Seuss Landing at Universal’s Islands of Adventure in Orlando. And so does my Mum-In-Law.
So when I found a UK stockist of the range of Dr Seuss patchwork fabrics, I just had to buy some.
I sent a selection of fat quarters to my Mum for her birthday – here’s a picture of her goodies:
Then it got close to Xmas, and I got a little more adventurous and bought some more Dr Seuss fabric to make a pinny for my Mum-In-Law!
I took a few in-progress photos:
In the picture above you can see on the right hand side some yellow and brown paisley fabrics. That was the pinny I used as a template. My husband’s Gran made it many years ago and never used it. I saw it, loved it, and she gave it to me – I use it ALL the time!
I was going to take a picture of my Mum-In-Law with it on, but forgot. Oh dear, how sad, too bad, never mind!
It really was the highlight of my Xmas, giving someone a present that I’d made, that I loved and that I knew they would love too. I even made up a little Dr Seuss-type rhyme to go inside the card!
But it doesn’t end there. My Mum-In-Law makes these lovely needle covers and I decided I really needed one. So I asked (very politely!) if she could make me one, and this is what I got on my birthday!
And opened out it looks like this on the inside:
And like this on the outside:
How cool is that?!?
