So when my cousin's little girl turned one I made her a couple of gifts. One gift was a quilt. I bought a small quilt top from an ebay seller for $8.00. I added the large pink rick rack to frame the inside of the top, I backed it with the pink daisy fabric in the picture below, did the quilting, and bound it with the pink daisy fabric. It was a simple, fun project.
This is the fabric I used for the back and binding:
The second gift was a knitted toy. I knit her a toy from the Big Book Of Knitted Monsters, by Rebecca Danger. I can't find a picture of the finished monster and I don't remember which monster it actually was, but I do remember the pattern was easy to follow and it was a fun knit.
