Lowly and Minky and Hydrangea

Well, I am easing into Granny mode :-) I bought some Minky fabric and some flannelette and made three little blankets! Cute, eh? VERY cuddly too. They should keep the cool drafts away from a little person, even one who lives where it is warm and toasty lots of the time !
The one with the froggies is turquoise on the back side.
Not sure if you know Richard Scarry books but in his children's' stories, he has a little character called Lowly Worm. Lowly is MUCH beloved by my SIL and DD and they reckon that the Babe will love him too…so….I made a Lowly! Call me crazy , but this was fun. Have not made ANY sort of dolls in ages so I enjoyed this.

Here he is! Lowly Worm! LOVE him :-)
Just to show you that I HAVE done some serious work, here is the start of my hydrangea centres. They will get lots of stitching and some extra detail with pencil crayon.
These are only pinned in place. Stay tuned!
OK, I am posting this to WIP Wednesday on the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com. Enjoy the posts from this week.

  2. Your hydrangea centres look wonderful -- how small are they, anyway, eh? I guess anyone who can work with that sort of detail has no trouble sewing with slinky Minky... My kids loved RS too..especially the kitties. We're all big Cat People in our family! (Clearly Lowly Worm is indeed...um...lowly...because I don't remember him at all! LOL!)

  3. Richard Scarry books were popular with my kids many many years ago. Great job on Lowly. Your hydrangea look amazing. Just lovely. Can't wait to see the end product.

  5. It must be fun to sew for a grand baby! I've none yet.
    I really love the colors in the hydrangea piece. It's going to be really pretty.

  8. You are a perfect granny-to-be. I don't know the worm but it seems to be a wonderful story and toy.

  9. I love your Lowly worm, My kids grew up on Richard Scarry, Mr Fixed, Postman Pat
    Thomas the Tank, Beatrix Potter, Noddy. My hubby would make all the different voices when he read the stories, dad's just have a knack of making things so much more interesting, when us poor mom's are totally tired at the end of the day. Where did you find the pattern, he is so cute!

  10. Baby B may have to arm-wrestle his Daddy for time with Lowly! Love it, and love the blankets so much! This is going to be one snuggly little boy. :)
