‘Going to the zoo’ playmat

Another productive fews days and two of the eight blocks completed


The train and little penguins are softies which can be moved around. Inside the train I have a little bell, and squeakers inside the little penguins. The penguins also have blobs of velcro on their backs, with the fish having velcro for eyes and the penguins can therefore be stuck onto the fish

The next step is to add some batting/wadding to the back of each and quilt each block. This is quite time consuming as I am hand stitching all the appliqué, with blanket stitch. I have a very basic sewing machine which can only sew straight and zig-zag 🙂
