A friend recently contacted me about swapping some cloth diapers for a few handmade items. She had cloth diapers that she wasn’t using and wanted to pass along and so instead of paying for them, she asked that I make something for her. How wonderful is that?! It was a fabulous idea! She sent me the diapers a few weeks ago and I finally got my projects in the mail to her. She asked for either the Noodlehead Clutch or Anna Maria Horner’s Quick Change Trousers for her daughter, June. (What a sweet name!) I couldn’t just make one since both are so fun to make and she was generous with the diapers! So she gets both! (Terrible pics in this post…it’s called being in a hurry. Bad excuse.)
First up–the trousers. I really liked this quirky print.
These fabrics seemed girly, without being over the top, and also reminded me of the mama. I will say that upon looking at the final product, I probably should have used fabrics with a little higher contrast. It’s amazing how fabrics look so different once you chop them up.
And the reverse option.
The Noodlehead Clutch. Again, I used fabrics I thought the mama would like–I hope she does!
OMGoodness Ingy! I LOVE LOVE LOVE these! Your are an artist, no doubt about that. I love your eye for color! You do know me well! Those are both color schemes I would totally pick for myself and those trousers are going to look lovely on June! I will send a pic of her wearing them in the future for sure. I have another diaper I am going to send you, a brand new purple, size small Fuzzi Bunz. No trade necessary, either, as I got it free and you outdid yourself on this trade! Thanks so much you modern mama!!
