I’ve been working with some more of my vintage fabric lately, turning these…
The red gingham border is not vintage. The blue and red floral was a pillowcase I found at the thrift store, and the yellow was some older yardage. The top measures out at 42x51, so it’s definitely a baby/toddler size. I have this blue and white floral (see below) in my stash that I am thinking of using for the backing, but I’m not sold on it yet – it doesn’t seem “strong” enough to me.
Well, the heat has found us! Our temps have been soaring since the weekend, and without a/c, we have to be pretty creative to keep cool. As an alternative to ice cream, I freeze pudding in small plastic cups, so they can easily be grabbed as a snack. Because they freeze solid, it takes a bit longer for the kids to devour them – they have to scrape at the pudding with a spoon! We vary the flavor and have added chocolate chips, bananas, and blueberries, too.
