Day 2 Just for the Boys Bloghop - Toy Stroller Cover

Welcome to our 2nd day of a very special blog hop - "Just for the Boys". My project involves a very special little buddy of mine, my son who is 2 yrs old.
A while ago he took over his big sisters doll stroller, now he completely owns it. We slowly take over big sister's stuff....first borrow it and then never return. It becomes ours ;)...LOL.

Here is the picture of the stroller before the make over:

He is very tiny and so sometimes he can make himself comfortable in this toy stroller. He loves puppies and always carries his little puppy & blankie around.

So I decide to make a stroller cover using some of my favorite puppy fabrics - "Spot's Favorite Color". For the back of the stroller I did a wonky modern log cabin block and for the seat I just used a square fabric trimmed to half circle. I quilted in the ditch for both the back and the seat.

Some of my other projects from the past which are oriented towards special boys in my life.

First up is "Blind Co-pilot" quilt that I made for my husband. This was a long term project. Half quilted on a longarm and half @ home on the DSM. Read the story here:

Then comes the baby quilt I made for my son:
Modern Pods

This one is my favorite too, which I made for my nephew in the beginner of the year for his birthday.
