The nectar of life

I have a pregnant friend who is due in about one month. A few weeks ago she asked me if I thought I could make a "crib tidy". I had never heard of them before so did some Googling and found that they're basically just pockets you can attach to the crib to keep diapers, wipes, etc. She said she really wanted one in order to make it easier to find diapers in the middle of the night but all the ones she found at stores were majorly expensive. So, I agreed to give it a try and I just finished it this afternoon.

(the straps look stretched because I've tested it out on a bunk bed but it should fit nicely on the crib)

I'm pretty happy with out it came out. I used a tan coloured gingham because she wanted simple browns/whites as the ultrasounds haven't been clear and they're not exactly sure what the sex is going to be so the nursery is going to be neutral. It was all pretty straight forward but I've posted a tute on my blog in case anyone wants to the details.

The idea seems so useful and practical that I think I'll be making a lot more of these as shower gifts in the future!  Smiley

I'm thinking about getting metal legs. It's a risky operation, but it'll be worth it.
