Baby shower!!

23 Mar

Tomorrow we are going to a friends baby shower, and in true last minute style I just finished the gift. I did complete the first half earlier this week, a flower blanky with purple minky dot on one side and cotton on the other with pink ribbons. Very sweet.

Tonight I made a cute chuck rag, although chuck rag doesn’t seem like a nice enough name for this little beauty though so maybe burp cloth is nicer. I found the stripy material at spotlight some time ago on the clearance rack and intended to make bibs for Miss P but they never eventuated. It is kinda like toweling but very very thin. Perfect for cloths to use if you have a chucker like I did or for cleaning up after eating out. And they don’t take much space in the nappy bag.

I hope the recipients like them as much as I do. Oh and clearly we know it is for a baby girl. 🙂

Special shirt for a special friend

20 Mar

Tonight I’m working on an appliqué shirt for a friend. She’s just told us they’re expecting their second child so I’m doing a shirt for their older child to wear announcing he’s a big brother. It’s very exciting.

I bought this really cute dinosaur print at Spotlight the other day and it works perfectly. So far I’ve ironed heat and bond onto my material and cut out my letters and dinosaur. But then I realized I hadn’t pre washed my shirt, and given its lovely red colour that’s a possible issue so it’s going aside tonight and I will get back to it after washing my shirt. Can’t wait to share the final product.

Aside 19 Mar

Well I decided to start a blog. I want to be able to share my creations with the online community. I’m hoping to get some inspiration and motivation from sharing too.
