Mommy loves you very much. So much so that she went to the store and picked out a bunch of cute fabric and wanted to make you something pretty.
She thought to herself, “How hard can it be to make a quilt? Just sew a few scraps together and voila!” Mommy was wrong. Let me explain:
First, she thought it would be fun to do a patchwork type quilt with all different size squares and rectangles. So, she cut them out. Turns out you have to be precise in quilting…
When she figured out how they were going to be pieced, she sewed them all together. Remember, mommy is teaching herself to sew.
After all of the ironing and sewing, she finally had a blanket for you! A blanket only an infant could love…because you don’t have very good eyesight yet.
Ellie, please remember mommy loves you, and just because she can’t quilt doesn’t mean it wasn’t made with a lot of love. She promises she will not sew you any outfits until her skills improve. If it makes you feel any better, she had a lot of fun trying!
