Living in England, tea is an important part of my diet (in fact I’m having one now), so when my mum gave me a gorgeous new teapot, I had to make a teacosy for it. Below are the instructions on how to make your own.
This is a very simple one, but from this basic you can add as much embellishment as you like (in fact I think Annelies has some great ideas for that department).
Only 17 days to go now until my due date so I am getting a bit itchy to have the Baby stuff done 🙂
I still had this great piece of fabric I bought in Ikea so I decided to make myself a little “on the road” package for the diaper bag. It consists of some bibs, burp cloths and of course a matching pouch to carry it around. Sounds a bit freaky
I have seen some great tutorials online to make baby bibs and burp cloths and this is the result after a busy afternoon of crafting:
Yesterday I had itchy fingers so when I got home, I decided to make a small project I had found on Pinterest for this lovely little box pouch. Always comes in handy to have one of those laying around if only to look at:

My post comes a bit late in the day, I’ve just come back from a long weekend in Belgium to celebrate my birthday (on the 1st of April, you know what that means…). I had a great time catching up with friends and I received some lovely presents (the main one being a brand new shiny sewing machine, more on that later).
So with all that celebrating combined with the glorious weather the past few days, I haven’t been very busy this week making things. The project I’ll share with you today then is a little baby quilt I made a while ago, almost a year in fact, for the first baby to arrive in our circle of friends. It’s more or less the project that made me discover how much I liked crafting, so it’s a very special one for me.
