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:
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:
When I redid our night stands a couple of weeks ago, the old bedside lamp I had looked a bit odd and did not match my bedroom anymore. So I dedcided to pimp the lamp shade to make it match the bedroom. Continue reading →
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:
Kicking off this new blog with an exciting topic: knitting!
I’ve recently learn how to knit again (I learnt before from my gran when I was a little girl), luckily it’s like riding a bike, the movements still seemed to be in my fingers. What wasn’t like riding a bike was learning how to purl. I had never learned how to do this before, and it felt really jarring at first. But I managed to get over my initial scepticisim and now I’m enjoying my new-found ability to create all sorts of great patterns.
