Tinkerlicious!


Last night while the quilt was in the wash, I decided to whip up some little pillows for Victoria to match her Tinkerbell quilt with the left over fabric.  They are 10″ x 10″ and the perfect size for a two year old. I sewed them together with polyester batting and then stuffed them full of fluffy poly stuffing. I love how cute and Tinkerlicious they are!

And here is the quilt.  I used the Warm and Natural cotton batting, 100% cotton Licensed by Disney for Springs Creative Group fabric and of course cotton thread.  I chose a large stripe design to showcase how beautiful this fabric is and I did not want small pieces to take away from the overall pattern on the fabric and have Tink’s body all chopped up.  The quilting is horizontal lines and will make the quilt very durable to the use and abuse of a toddler.   The backing is from the same line and quotes the following lines from Tinkerbell.

“Second star to the right and straight on till morning… all it takes is faith and trust, oh! and something I forgot: dust..”

Tinkerbell


 

So, one of my first friends that I can ever remember having from when I was a 3-4 year old has asked me to make a quilt for her daughter who is turning 2 this summer.  She told me Victoria is really into Tinkerbell and purple.  I was able to find this incredible Disney Tinkerbell Line from www.fabric.com and fell in love with it myself.  It is 100% cotton, uber soft and a dream to sew.  Originally, I was going to make differnt size patches but once I received the fabric and saw how beautiful it is in real life, I knew I had to make it a stripe quilt to be able to show all the “Tinks” better.  This particular quilt is 3.5 feet in width x 5 feet in length.  Perfect size for a crib turned toddler bed. 

Here is the quilt top.  When I complete it this coming weekend (or earlier), I will update the pictures so you can all see the pretty goodness that Tinkerbell provided.
