new projects - fat quarters

Having several fat quarters of rainbow-hued spotty cotton to use up I decided to make some baby stuff with them. So far I have made a skirt out of the red cotton, and some cute little shoes out of the blue, lined with some of the pink. The results are for sale in my Etsy shop.

The skirt was dead easy - you just cut the quarter in half, sew down the two short ends, make a casing for the elastic and simply hem and its done!

The shoes were a little more tricky, but are made of only three parts, so its just a case of making a few edges, assembling and stitching the whole thing together and  adding some elastic to help the fit.  I think they look kinda sweet.
