I started making a 'quilt' for Kit last year. I think I'd planned for it to be ready for Christmas, I can't remember because it was so long ago! It was annoying me to have a half-finished project sitting around, so I pulled an 'all-nighter' the other evening and worked on it until I finished it. I even made a cushion cover to match. I didn't really plan it very well and just made it up as I went along so I'm pretty happy with the result and Kit seems to like it.
I'd collected various versions of The Very Hungry Caterpiller material and it is backed with some lovely fairtrade organic cotton jersey I bought from a lovely local shop The Cotton Store who are a franchise of Gossypium. I find it really difficult to find jersey cotton at the best of times, let alone organic and fairtrade. I love the fact that Kit is sleeping under something that is at least half fairtrade, and that the part that is touching his skin is organic.
