I was SO excited when I finally finished with these ring toys. I committed to making two of these before I got the pattern in the mail and upon reading the instructions I realized that I was in trouble. I didn't realize they would involve so much hand sewing and that they would be so complex to construct! Thankfully I have a lengthy daily commute on the train so I was able to do most of the hand sewing while in transit.
They aren't perfect, but I finished them! And that's all that matters. I used the Heather Bailey Happy Stacker Ring Toy pattern. I had a bunch of leftover fabric from Henry's baby quilt so I didn't even have to buy any additional fabric!
I love how happy the fabrics look together! I hope the little ones that will receive these love them as much as I do!
I also made another superhero cape, this time for my sister's nephew. I think I have perfected my approach at appliqueing the letters and shapes onto the back of the cape. This little guy loves Lightning McQueen too. He's a pretty popular character!
The good news is that since this is the fourth cape that I've made, it went together in under two hours. That was very much appreciated after I spent most of the month making the two ring sets!
