1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Little dress for a little girl on: April 08, 2014 11:18:51 PM
I'm so in love with the pattern for this dress! It's so simple and quick to make but makes a great garment.

I made this one for Emma when we went to a baby concert by the Cologne Philharmonic Society

2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pear Pants on: April 08, 2014 11:10:06 PM
Ok, pears are probably not typically spring but I wanted to make Emma some romper pants in brown corduroy and the pear fabric just matches perfectly



I added a crochet pear to jazz the pants up a little

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Baptism candle for Emma on: November 02, 2013 09:04:56 AM
My daughter is being baptized in two weeks from now. Crafty mum that I am I couldn't resist making her baptismal candle. I used the symbol of the fish that we had already used for the invitations and the symbol of water. It was the first time that I decorated a candle but I really enjoyed it and I'm already looking forward to making more.

4  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Starry baby quilt on: July 14, 2013 03:51:13 AM
My mum made this amazing quilt for our little girl



What looks like clouds all around on the edging are actually sheep.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Coronet baby beanie (now with action shot) on: April 29, 2013 06:57:22 AM
First of all I have to confess: I DID NOT make this newborn beanie but my fabulous aunt! Nonetheless I want to share this cute little cap with you. My contribution to the project was finding the pattern in a free regional magazine and picking the yarn. Unfortunately I'm not a knitter (all I've mastered so far is the stockinette stitch), so my aunt took care of the knitting which turned out to be a bit tricky. She thinks it's a bit too small BUT I'm so happy with the result! The beanie is so so cute! It looks small but it stretches a lot. I can't wait for the little girl to arrive and wear her cute little beanie!

Enough talk - here's a picture:

I know the colors rather seem like "boy colors" but I don't really care about this kind of distinction.

Thanks for looking!
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / burp cloth and changing pad on: April 29, 2013 06:37:49 AM
Since I'm getting ready to be a mommy soon, I've made quite a lot of baby stuff recently. Of course burp cloths and a changing pad are essential for nursing and diapering so they shouldn't be missing.

Burp cloth

I used an old towel for the back of the burp cloth.

The changing pad rolled up ...


... and rolled out


Thanks for looking!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / hush little baby (now with "action shot") on: April 29, 2013 06:25:37 AM
Romper bags have been quite popular here for quite a while now and many people have recommended them to me, also my midwife. Since the pattern is quite simple, they're easy and quick to make. Basically all you need to do is to attach a waistband to a bag.


I used terrycloth for the inner bag, cotton for the outer bag and cotton jersey knit for the waistband.

UPDATE:
Here's a picture of our little preemie girl:

She sleeps so so well in the romper bag!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / getting ready to be a mommy - diaper wallet on: April 29, 2013 06:12:29 AM
As we're expecting a first child in summer, I'm busy getting all the handy things together a soon-to-be mom needs. After searching online for diaper wallets  I made one based on all the different patterns I had found. So here's the result:




It has three pockets for baby wipes, diapers and maybe little books and one zippered pocket for baby care products like cream or baby care oil.

Unfortunately the zipper ist a bit short but I didn't have a longer one in this particular color at hand.
Hubby wants me to make another one - he doesn't like the flowery pattern - so I'll pay more attention the length of the zipper then.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Felt dreameries for the nursery on: April 29, 2013 05:55:29 AM
Since we're expecting our first child in summer, we've made room for a nursery in our home office, so the baby shares room with the hubby. To make her part of the room cozy and snug I purchased those kits for cute felt decoration at a trade fair.

This one's a summer display (they had one display for each season but since the little girl will be born in summer I chose summer. Probably I'll get the others, too, because it is such a nice idea)


And this little garland is called "summer child" - so absolutely perfect!



Both kits are from a Dutch artist's workshop called Pippilotta. I so love her creations! Simply cute and adorable!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Filling up the baby's wardrobe on: April 29, 2013 05:38:45 AM
We're are expecting our first child in summer. Luckily my mum kept a lot of my sister's and my baby clothing so we don't have to buy too many things for the start. However, hobby sewist that I am, I can't keep my hands off making cute baby clothing. I have been waiting for this happy time for years Smiley

Here are some baby pants I made (bought the pattern online and love it - so simple and quick to make!)


First attempt


With a dala horse appliqu


This one's my favourite!

All pants are for 3m-6m.
I made a smaller one to go with a shirt I made before:



The pattern for the shirt is from the same shop.

Now I'm counting down the days for the little girl to arrive and to wear all the mommy-made clothes!
