Where has the time gone? Shoebox Time again!

Doesn’t seem long since I was gathering together items for the Christmas 2018 Shoebox Appeal.
Now I’m putting the finishing touches to a box for a little girl aged 2-4 years.
I always make some homemade gifts and this year I’ve made my usual little patchwork tote and a cover for a dolly. We have a TV programme for little children called In the Night Garden and the dolly is one of the characters from that programme. Our granddaughter loved it when she was small so I have happy memories of it too.
Other years I’ve made a little quilt but this year I’ve made a hand quilted cover, without the batting. It will fold up better in the Shoebox and take up less room.
The cover measures 13” square.

Here’s the patchwork bag, nice and bright:
Front and back are different.
