1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Name/Activity soft book on: September 03, 2011 08:42:42 AM
Hi all,

I have made this activity book for my daughter a while ago, and didn't have time to go though the pictures. I enjoyed making it, it all started from a button of the ladybird on one of the pages.
Let me know what you think.

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Name Book in Cyrillic characters on: February 18, 2011 12:11:24 PM
Hi all,

We are trying to bring up our daughter bilingual, but since we live in England, we have more books in English, rather than in Russian. I have desided to make a soft book using cyrillic characters and animal pictures.
This was inspired by many talented craftsters who have made soft books before and shared pictures and tuts. Thank you.


First page. M for myshonok (mouse)

E for esh (hedgehog)

L for lev and lyagushka (lion and frog)

I for iguana

N for nosorog (rhinoceros)

D for dinosavr (dinosaur)

A for akula and albatros (shark and albatros)

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / High-chair upholstery on: February 06, 2011 12:42:35 PM
Hi all,

We got a highchair from freecycle recently. The structure of it was fine, but the upholstery quite old and tired. I washed it to start with, but even washed it was a bit tiered, so I decided to reupholster it. I had some of the fishy fabric left from a different project, just enough to finish it and since I have learned recently how to do piping, you can guess the rest... Here are pictures of the finished highchair. As you can see I didn't have enough of the red thread, so had to use some of the blue one for the reinforcement of the back. The back pocket came out quite well, I am happy with it.

Let me know what you think...

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / PlayPen pillows with piping for my little girl (march of the penguins) on: February 06, 2011 12:29:46 PM
Hi all,
I have made these cushions for my daughter's playpen from a fabric, which was originally intended for curtains. Somehow I couldn't make the curtains, but as soon as we got the playpen, I decided this fabric would do great in it. As I have learned how to do piping recently (I have been making many things with piping now), I decided to use it here too. It really makes the whole thing looking much better. The piped edges are actually dark blue, as penguin's feet, but on the photo they look black.

Hi all,

Let me know what you think.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Hooded towel on: August 19, 2010 01:03:29 PM
Hi all,

Here is a towel with hood which I have made a while ago. I made it before I gave birth, when I didn't know that babies are quite small. Of course, now I realised that this towel is gigantic in comparison with my little one, who is weeks old now, but hopfully one day we will be able to use it on her. Let me know what you think?

Meanwhile, as you can see my husband can fit into it. :-)

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Colourful and washable nappies - updated on: August 19, 2010 12:46:25 PM
Hi all,

I know lot of people have posted photos of different nappies here before. I have made some when I was pregnant with my daughter. I have bought a new washable nappy from Mothercare and made a pattern out of it and used this pattern to make my own. They all have a PUL layer (a pouch) inside and two cotton layers on the outside, one of which is a colourful fabric. They have cheered me up no end during the last days on pregnancy, since I was quite immobile and had to stay home. Let me know what do you think of them?

That's how they look from the front:

Here are two layers: cotton and PUL before I put them together:

And this is the finished product:

And now the action shot:
