Baby crib mobile

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

Nursing Cover

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.

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:
