    Quilt from DS's baby clothes.
    I Google taught myself how to quilt- this was basically my first sewing project.

    I always knew I couldn't give away the clothes, but didn't want them shoved in a cupboard forever.
    DS is 8, so it took me that long to work up the nerve; I was so worries I would ruin everything!
    But now it's finished and I'm 70% finished DS2's quilt 😊

    I love this! I've seen a few memory blankets but they all look mismatched. I love that yours has a pattern!

    Cutting them up is really nervewracking!!!

    My biggest tip is the iron on stabilizer- the clothes are too stretchy and need to be stabilized (hence the name lol).
    Cut the squares too big, stabilize them then cut them to size again.
    It's worth the extra work.

    And once you get all the clothes in front of you, altogether, you'll find that there will be obvious colour divisions-
    Both kids clothes ended up being really easy to divide up!

    It's a free pattern off the internet called kaleidoscope kites.

    I found it quite easy to find the colour divisions, and the smaller squares are patchwork fabric (not clothes), and they were really important choices to tie the quilt together; I actually ended up choosing nearly two options for each colour row, because my first choices were too washed out and I just wasn't happy.

    Thanks! I didn't think to use a stabiliser! I think I'll make it a school holidays project (along with 10,000 other things lol)

    Love all these projects. Lots of talented BH ladies.

    I made this mobile for my bub's nursery. Saw similar on etsy for way too much and thought I'd give it a shot.
