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 →
I bought new fabric and was inspired by this post from Lula Louise to make a half-circle zippered pouch. I started this project a bit late in the evening so I did not bother with the wrist strap, however they look very cute. Continue reading →
I purchased some gold coloured fabric paint a while ago to up cycle my babies white rompers. First I wanted to stencil using freezer paper. However after visiting numerous art supply shops, I still did not find any freezer paper. Apparently I need to search for this in quilt stores. Continue reading →
Last week I made some new cushion covers for my cushions in the couch. I used a yellow fabric I once picked up in a sale (designer unknown) and a black pattern fabric from Robert Kaufman. Continue reading →
I made this little mobile for one of my friend’s who’s just had her first baby. I saw some similar projects online, and since these are made out of felt, they’re really easy and quick to do. The result is a very cute (if I say so myself) baby mobile! Read on for the instruction on how to make your own…
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:
