These challenges certainly get your brain thinking. Some themes come readily to mind, whereas others require some thinking about. I thought when I picked baby socks it would be easy. However, this one took a bit of thinking about. Generally, I would have liked to make a wall hanging or cushion, but that would have including a personalisation. As I didn’t have anyone specific to make for, I opted to create a frame. That means it’s ready for when it’s needed and a personalised message could go on the reverse.
I chose appliqué as the method, it seemed perfect for creating the contrasting toes and heels. Watch the video below as I explain how it was made and other options for how to adapt and use the block
You could frame your block as I have done, it would certainly look good on a nursery wall. This is definitely a design I’ll be coming back to and will develop some time in the future. However you choose to use the block, I hope you have fun and I look forward to seeing your photos. You can get your free pattern download, including the templates here.
