This is It! (Copycat Challenge #42 and #43)

Yes siree - these are the final projects in the year long Copycat Challenge experiment in which I made - and blogged about - all the offerings in the Blanket Statement book by Vicki Haninger in the style of Julia & Julia. Whew! Above you can see the pillow found on pages 32 and 33 called the Pretty Piped Pillow. I made mine smallish for Bella's head and added a quilt to go with it from an orphaned quilt block.
But what to put the pillow and quilt in was the next problem. Solved by making the Handy Catch All Bag on pages 78 - 79! I turned the reduced-size bag into a backpack by sewing a small
"D" loop to the bag and threading the handle straps through that so that Bella can wear the pack when she goes to visit her Gramma's for overnight visits!
The appliqued flower pattern was found on page 97 of the book.
So here we are. Done. Stretched in creativity. And off to new adventures with needle and thread in hand!
Next: the last word(s) on the whole undertaking with a parting "group" shot.

Love the appliqued flower, the red color is just perfect. Bella is really ready for Grandma and Grandpa's now!
