In Belgium it is custom to offer chocolate or candy as a gift to people who come and visit your newborn baby. We call it doopsuiker, which is literally translated baptism sugar. Although nowadays it is given with birth regardless weather the child is baptised or not. Other names are suikerbonen (= sugar beans) or dragees.
Hello crafty people.
As promised here’s another project made from the Pezzy fabric collection from Moda! I wanted to make a mobile for my sister’s little one that fitted in with the overall theme she’d chosen: owls. Bang on trend, and how can you not love those cute little faces… (This is directed at my boss Jai, who loathes owls).
It actually took quite a bit of experimenting we the shape of the owl before I reached a result I was happy with, here’s some of the guys that didn’t make it through my stringent quality assurance process (yes, I said some of, I actually made more).
I’m very happy wit the shape I eventually settled for, and I think the little one appreciates it too!
