I love making these. It's just scraps from other projects. Where esle can a Civil War repro look perfect next to some dogs? This one is for a teacher at work--expecting her first this summer--and she knows it's a girl.
I tried a machine sewn binding--the 2nd half of the job, but I just don't like how it looks compared to hand sewn, so since I make mostly small stuff, I'll go back to a needle and thread for bindings.
