A friend of ours recently gave birth to her second son. Because she already had all the baby stuff from her first son, I just asked her what DIY gift I could make. Turned out a mobile for Maxi Cosi would be useful and I got inspired by this white cloud mobile posted by the “Do Small Things with love” blog. Continue reading

Baby crib mobile

This baby mobile was made to go with the colour block quilt we posted earlier this month.

From our experience, babies are more interested in mobiles that contain a combination of bold shapes and colours. Therefore we choose an easy star shape and decided to work with contrasting colours on each shape that are also used in the blanket. This way the quilt and mobile match well together and the baby is stimulated by the mobile (which benefits the parents as well). Continue reading

Studs

Studs are totally the rage.

I found this nice pink sweater at Vero Moda but it looked a bit boring. Perfect project for some quick simple pimping.

Studs are available in many different shops. I found an online shop (www.studskopen.nl) that offers different sizes, shapes and colours and for 6.99 you already have 100 studs!!

Adding studs is really simple, all you need is studs, and article of clothing and something to fold stud prongs down (I used needle-nose plyers but it also worked just using my thumbs).

I started off with a triangle design but ended up just adding one line of studs to each shoulder. If you want to do a design, I suggest you create the design on scotch tape first. This way you can hold it above you clothing to determine where is should go and how large you want to make it.

Another great pimp is to add one or more studs to the pocket rim of a simple t-shirt with pocket. Instantly looks posh. Try to find a colour of stud that stands out against the colour of the t-shirt for maximum impact.
