Garden Play Mat

I have a granddaughter's birthday coming up and thought I should get started on a project for her.
I made Eloise this playmat that Juliet is also starting to enjoy, so I thought I'd make her one of her own.  That way each of them have a doll.

I still have some of the paperdoll fabric which I am able to use.
I backed the doll and clothing with flannel so they are ready to go. I just need to do a bit of handsewing to close them up.

 As you can see I'm using scraps. Not all of them cover everything.  But there is a solution for that.

 Put a tree in front of the hole.  
I was going to make a vegetable garden but when I saw this scrap that looks like a trellis of flowers I decided to make it a flower garden.

 Peter Rabbit will be disappointed with no carrots or lettuce.

 The swing is 3-D and a nice little addition.

More to come as I move along.


  1. Elaine, I loved it. So criative. Congrats.

  2. Oh, what fun! I like your idea for making this a play quilt.

  3. What a super project! I'm sure she will cherish it for years to come, how lucky she is!


I love hearing from you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
