Güatero

I made my beloved hot water bottle
(or güatero as they call it in Chile) a quilted cozy.
I made the patchwork with some cotton scraps
and machine quilted it with some wool felt as backing.
I used one of my birdie hand carved stamps to stamp a piece of fabric
to give it a more personal touch.
Perfect for these winter chilly nights :)
