Introducing Sandbox Sisters! These two little gals are inspired by two of my friends, Amber & Jewells. Love ya, ladies!

Sandbox Sisters

If these girls remind you of Sunbonnet Sue, that’s because she’s one of my absolute favorites to design! I love her so much, she and her friends have an entire page right here on Sewhooked.

I used Kona cotton for the background and lots of fun scraps for the rest. I just love how their little shovels and sandals turned out!

See more Sunbonnet Sue!

This is what the girls looked like before I made them in fabric.

Just like all of my patterns, this block was designed in EQ.
