My Creative Space - applique

It's my good friend's daughter's first birthday tomorrow. One. What a great little age :) She's such a cutie pie and we are celebrating her first year on Saturday. My friend asked for no presents. That's no fun! :)

I wanted to make her something personalised with her beautiful little name on it. I decided to make her a cushion with her name and a picture.

Now, I don't have experience with applique, so I wasn't expecting the best looking thing. But, it's the thought that counts. Right?

Here's what I came up with. I still need to hand sew her eyes, lips and hair on, but I've drawn it on for now. You can see what it will end up looking like. And, I like it :)

For more creative spaces, pop over to Kirsty's blog here. Have a great day. I'm off to the library with my little boy :)
