My little girl is only 3 month and we have already purchased her first shoe collection! There was a sale of the Antwerp based designer Nathalie Verlinden and the shoes are just to cute we could simply not resist! I lover everything about them: the colour, the design, the details… and not to forget they are good shoes with proper support for baby’s first steps. You can find the points of sale for Nathalie Verlinden Shoes on her website here. Continue reading
10th of June was father’s day in Belgium. As my boyfriend has been doing a great job since Lilly was born 6 weeks ago, he deserves a first father’s day gift. Now Lilly is still a bit to small to make something so I went and did it for her.
I used a blank romper (from Primark) and added the text I (heart) DAD in applique. See one of my previous posts for a tutorial on applique (click here). To secure the applique I roughly handstichted along the applique using embroidery thread in similar colours as tthe fabric.
Doesn’t she look great!
At a friends party last week I discovered a great breastfeedig aid: the nursing cover. A friend used this specially made cover for public breastfeeding. It is realy simple to make and allows you to comfortable breastfeed in public spaces without the hassle with blankets. With this cover you have total control and nobody can see a thing! I had a quick look at the design of her coer and made a simple version myself.
This is what you will need:
1. A piece of fabric for the cover (60 X 100 cm)
2. 2 pieces of fabric for the straps (60 X 7 cm)
3. 1 piece of boning of 30 cm long. You can buy this at any fabric store, I bough mine at Veritas
4. 2 D-shaped rings for the straps
5. 2 Triangle-shaped pieces of fabric in case you want to add pockets inside. These can be usefull for storing norsing pads or even your phone during feeding.
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:
I discovered a new technique: Applique
I find myself at the age where many people around me are pregnant. In my search for a homemade gift for a new baby boy, I stumbled across the cutest owl mobile from craftschmaft.com. This is a picture of the pattern I found:
I have been using my sewing machine for a while now and decided it was time to take my skills to the next level by introducing a zipper! It might sound dull to most of you but there has to be a first zipper for every serious “crafter”.
