rocket age buggy liner

My friend asked me if I could make her a buggy liner. I'd actually never heard of them, I've used the winter ones with the foot muff to keep them warm but it never occurred to me that a cotton liner would be comfy and practical for the summer. I was a little nervous because I've never done button holes and my machine doesn't even have the function for such fancy things but I just went for it with a zealous zig zag. 

I used half a yard of two prints from the fabulous Rocket Age by October Afternoon I bought from Fluffy Sheep Quilting. So it's reversible but that vintage comic style main print is just gorgeous and happily she sent me a picture of it on the buggy:

The red binding is bias binding from Frumble - I love buying bias binding because I hate making it! I machined it on, which I hate doing on quilts but maybe because this is bias binding it worked really well and I am so pleased with the finish.

This is the second finish from my FAL list and I'm trying to stay focused and get things done, I'm going to have a busy weekend because I'm hoping to get at least two more projects finished for next week. Have a good one and check back on Monday because I will be having a giveaway!

at Dizzy Quilts this week

  1. I love getting photos of the things I create in use, and seeing the liner in the buggy is great! Rocket Age is such a fun line, and I love how this turned out!

  2. I love that line! Not sure I love it enough to have a baby to need to make one of these though ;o)

  3. Oh how adorable! I love it. I can't believe you had never done one of these before. You are so resourceful! Thanks for linking up for TGIFF! :-)

  4. Well done for that lovely buggy liner! And for the inventive buttonholes! There will be a lovely comfy baby out there!

  5. This looks great and a it's such a good idea. I've never thought of a summer buggy liner but it must be more comfortable and it's also a nice way to personalise a buggy :)

  6. Love it. We had a liner when baby MiH was smaller so he had been able to fit in the buggy from quite small to now. And because all our buggies are second hand, I can see I could make a lining to cover the not so new seats!
