I received a MOST lovely package from knittychick a couple of weeks ago, and I am terribly sorry to be JUST NOW uploading.  Please don't take it as a statement on how much I love and appreciate this package!  (Going on week 2 of sick kiddos.... YUCK.)  Every single item has so much thought, skill, consideration and time put into each one.... I truly, truly appreciate everything!  Now, onto my AWESOME package!!!

I'm planning to nurse our next little baby, and knittychick made me a fabulous nursing cover!  Using my favorite themes (sea critters, and NARWHALS!), plus my favorite colors (aqua, orange and green!), she made this reversible cover with pockets for necessities, or whatever!  It also has an adjustable neck strap, and boning in the neckline so I can keep an eye on baby.  I LOVE it!




Now this next item... I can't even begin to describe how awesome it is.  And I couldn't photograph it well, but I tried.  It's a swaddler that can also be used in the carseat/carrier! (I hope you can see the "legs" at the bottom!)  Genius!!  Also with the adorable sea creatures, favorite colors, and oh-so-soft minky lining!




A set of precious burp cloths, hand painted with our favorite characters!  (Almost too cute to use as burp cloths!)  Wink


And last but not least, she included a nursing-station caddy!  I SOOOO needed one of these!  It's the perfect size for burp cloths, diaper, wipes, water & snack for me, phone, etc. 




My sweet partner also included the left-over fabric, so I can craft more for little one... yay for fabric!  Thank you SO much, knittychick, for being such an awesomely thoughtful partner.  I really appreciate YOU, and I can't wait to use these goodies for our new baby!   Kiss

Nostrum, did you use a pattern for those pants?  Was it hard?  I made a pair (not ruffled, just plain) from another pattern once before, and the leg holes were such a pain to hem.  It looks like maybe the lining in yours would simplify things?  They're so cute!  Love the art, too. Smiley  (I don't do art, so I'm always especially impressed by those who do. Smiley )

I am trying to upload photo's of what I recieved from barbolot but I'm having a really difficult time uploading the pictures. I think my computer is a bit slow so I'll try again later tonight or tomorrow morning. I am so sorry I haven't gotten them up yet. I will get them up within the next 24 hours. I promise!!!! WE love everything though and we've already been getting lots and lots of use out of everything!!!

I'm so glad you like everything, knittychick!  I had such a great time crafting for you and your little ones.  Smiley  I do have some photos, but they aren't very good.... they were taken ~3 am as I was frantically trying to get your package wrapped and packed!  LOL!  But I can post them if you need me to.  Wink

Okay here are a few more photos of the swaddler I sent Barbolot. It's pretty cool, it's called a Baby Nomade and though the pattern is a little...different...once I got going it went quick. I'm looking forward to making another for my little one. They really are pretty cool. So here is the swaddler being tested by my son's Yeti stuffy (made by Spooky Pooky).

open to put baby in:



Closed and swaddled:



And here is my little bubba showing off how even swaddled you can play around in it!

Okay, so I've been on vacation recently, first to San Diego, then to Arizona for my 10 year high school reunion. I received a week ago and just have not had the opportunity to post pictures of the amazing package that we received from Barbolot. I can't believe everything she sent! Most of which went with us on vacation and has already gotten a lot of use! I don't know where to start so I guess I'll start here.

When we first received we opened to find really pretty wrapped gifts. One for the family:




And one for the baby, one for mommy, and one for Micah:




Micah got to open his first and he LOVES it! It's an ABC book! Daddy and Mommy love teaching Micah about his ABC's and animals etc, and he loved this fabric book. What's even better is that barbolot did hand embroidery on each page and each animal so that it's a tactile book as well. Even my nieces loved it and they are 17 and 20!





Next mommy let Micah open the babies package. And inside was a awesome onesie and swaddle blanket for the baby. We love Big Bang Theory and barbolot stenciled our little girl a cute Bazinga! onesie! The swaddle has an adorable turtle embroidered on it.




For mommy, an ADORABLE clutch for paci's, tissues, bib's, etc. I LOVE it!!! It keeps every small item in one place so I don't have to dig like crazy through the diaper bag to find things. I know exactly where everything is!




And speaking of diaperbags take a look at this! How sweet you say, is this a cute 2 patterned diaper bag you ask? Something large with a nod to masculine and feminine?





No! No I tell you it is not!!! It is 1 extra large diaper bag that can be unsnapped to make 2 diaperbags!!! That's right I said it unsnaps! Oh yeah! This is so awesome I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was when I opened it! I took it to show my sister in law, who is also expecting #2 and she loved it as well. Now I have 1 huge bag with everything I need, but *snap* just like that I can separate them to drop off one kid and keep one with me and not have to worry about separating everythign in the bags, I just have one bag for each kid!





It's amaizing! And they hold SO MUCH!!!!! I mean really! Look at this! This is the bag all packed up to go to a BBQ and swim party at Aunt and Uncles house!



Thank you, thank you, thank you Barbolot!!!! I can not tell you how excited I am for everything you've sent! It's all amazing and We love it! I can't wait for our little one to be here to use the rest of it! You were and wonderful partner! Thank you again so, so much!

Such beautiful items!  I especially love the separating diaper bag! I'd love one!  And they are the perfect gift for the friend or family who is having a second baby.  Barbolot you are a genius!
