    a wee carrier for my youngest granddaughter - my very first FMQ!

    LOL And of course this meant that the back of the sandwich wasn't perfect...
    This was last spring/summer, and I tested on a remnant after Nea's bed spread to find out
    HOW hard this was...

    I couldn't throw this first attempt away so
    I made it into a carrier for wee Linnea so she could take her doll both to the beach
    and on the islands during her vacation: as we all know wheels and sand/rocks are ill matched...

    I just lined and added handles, boxed etc. + some sunshading for extra bright days! LOL

    This is the object you see in my avatar, btw.

    A stash must be carefully and constantly built. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.

              What a cute idea. I have 3 nieces and their birthdays are coming up. I may make them some of these x

                      Thank you so much for all your kind remarks, ladies! Hugs!

                      The fabric was a remnant from the fabrics for the bedspread
                      made from Moda's Love you, Pretty pink





                      I bought that pack on line from Fat Quarter Shop,
                      in addition to a jelly roll of Love U from Etsy.

                        That is so adorable. I may have to make one for my daughter. (Also Linnea - LOL) Did you have a pattern you used or did you just "wing-it"?
