11  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!

12  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.
13  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!
14  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!
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I must confess that I'm a SKIRT ADDICT on: October 25, 2012 11:30:29 AM
In summer I bought some patterns for yoga waistband skirts. Since then I've made some skirts for friends and also for myself. Now I don't want to wear anything else but skirts with yoga waistbands - so so comfy!
Here are my lovely skirts:



16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby Beanie Galore on: October 25, 2012 11:08:45 AM
One of our friends has become father recently. Unfortunately I'm quite busy with school and don't have much time. Nonetheless we wanted to send them something handmade  so it was a good opportunity to try my hands at baby beanies. I used those free Tie Dye Diva patterns (http://tiedyedivadesigns.blogspot.de/2011/02/free-baby-knot-hat-pattern-and-tutorial.html and http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2011/04/free-tie-top-beanie-pattern-jen-from-tie-dye-diva/) and once I had started I couldn't stop. I even made a beanie for my first baby (who has only been planned so far!!!). Anyway, here are some pictures:



17  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Lavender fairy on: July 21, 2012 05:18:18 AM
Actually I'm not quite sure if this is the rigth board but since the project included some needle felting here it is:

It's my aunt's birthday and I wanted to make her a gift instead of buying something. Since she's a sewist (I learnt sewing from her) she usually makes lots of things for herself. Some years ago I discovered that fairy thing and I remembered that my aunt admired it. She even asked for a fairy but I hadn't made her one so that was the perfect gift!

Here's the lavender fairy I made for her




The fairy was inspired by http://www.cs-fantasien-aus-wolle.de/Indexger.html
18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / board game "Life of Jesus" on: May 06, 2012 08:50:54 AM
I'm teaching Religious Education. Since one of our topics in year 5 is Jesus in his day I'm working on a board game to round off the unit. Here's the board (which isn't finished yet but I couldn't wait to share). I still need to make cards with questions.



C&C welcome!
19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / framed love confession on: May 06, 2012 08:38:00 AM
Found a frame like this on someone's pinterest and had to make one for our home. We got married in October so the leaf background was perfect.

20  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Amy Butler pouch on: May 06, 2012 08:31:23 AM
I made this zipper pouch for the OWS swap. The pattern is from Amy Butler's Style Stitches



It's medium size, perfect for pens.
