I just wanted to post a short note about my current personalised gifts ordered by my customers.
These are mostly baby and kids gifts made to order. I tend to choose colourful and cheerful fabric scraps (yes, my scrap basket is overflowing.....) with simple applique name in one solid colour.
As I personally love making quilted cushions, I believe these make great personalised gifts for a child any age. Easy and simple. Most of my cushions are finished with bias binding and zip at the back.
My second choice is a baby blanket (cot quilt) in simple colours and easy pieced blocks. This makes it quick to finish but the end result is great.
The bellow baby quilt was made from simple boy-style charm pack and solid light blue fabric. I added orange applique name and bright yellow bias binding. Great colours for boys!!
Another great gift (can be personalised with a name) is a bunting. This caravan bunting was specifically make for my caravan-obsessed friend. To the simple triangle shaped flags I added blue bias with some white lace and bright red ric-rac.
Simple and really effective. One happy "caravan" friend.
Will be back soon.
