Trilly for Trelise

Meet Trilly.  This wonderful little tweet heart is my first ever hand made softie.

The hand drawn pattern for Trilly was inspired by the wonderful fabric I have for my daughters quilt (yet to be constructed).  I am so very proud of her as I managed to use the applique stitches on my adopted sewing machine (a very flash Janome - with a touch screen) and my first attempt at applique.

Trilly was a hand made gift for Trelise who recently turned one!  Trilly winged her way to New Plymouth with me on my first girls weekend away since KB was born.  I have so much to post about that weekend!

Janome locked up on me when I attempted to created Trilly's sibling as she was in desperate need of a service.  Months later all serviced and eager to go I have Janome back and can crack on with the next "hundred" or so sewing projects on my mind!


  1. love it! the blue legs are so cute and the mix of fabrics looks fab :) I have so many projects I want to do my brain hurts sometimes!!!

  2. Trilly's gorgeous. I'd like to have a flock of them/her in my backyard.

  3. Oh how cute! beautiful fabrics

  4. lovely softie and great job for your first go! :) btw, love the quilt fabric. i'm sure once the quilt is done it will look fabulous!

  5. Well done! I would never have guessed it was your first softie! Great colours!

  6. Glad Janome performed her duties. Trilly looks fab - bet KB is keen to have a wee chick of her own! Can't wait to see those 100 projects roll of the production line:) Ciao Bella
