As I mentioned before, I have attempted to try some kind of stitching as we waited for the baby to arrive. Making a baby sized ‘Dupta’ is just what grandmothers do.
Naturally, I wanted to do something different. I struck upon the idea to make something using cut pieces from discarded clothes of the expectant Mom and Dad. This was totally in sync with the Reuse Upcycle theme! My design was inspired by one made by my Mom for my daughter.
|Fabric triangles stitched together to get this intricate pattern
Initially, I thought of simply using running stitch to bring my idea together but it was not strong enough. Buying a regular sewing machine seemed to be a waste so I got a mini version which served my purpose perfectly.
I cut up the fabric into triangles and placed them together like assembling a zigsaw puzzle. Once I got a design I liked, I stitched the pieces together to get these two unique pieces.
I call these the MomDad dupti!!
What have you stitched for a newborn? What has been your experience? I am sure my thoughts may cause a deja vu to some of you especially someone who has hosted a new born. I would love to hear from you!
See you after the weekend folks!
