My creative space

When the Mum-to-be tells you she doesn't want one of your famous nappy bags because she has reclaimed her absolute favourite that you made for her sister yonks ago, what is a girl to do?
Buy singlets, because that is what she really needs?
Well, maybe just one.
(And if the're Bonds that is all you really can afford!)
So it's back to the drawing board and trawling google images to find pretty things they never knew they needed.
I've had heaps of fun making little cloth books until it came to the final binding. One is just pictures from a set, self bound; the other alternates random, colourful-or-not pictures with tactile materials.
The gorgeous wee froggie comes courtesy of this link and the other is the little man's bag so that I don't have to bother next year.
I'm also thinking about a couple of bibs using the brand new white towelling that just happened to be in the oppy fabric bin yesterday when I went back for the cushion cover I should have picked up last week for the bag.
If I seem more productive than usual, all I can say is that you get a whole lot more done by being stuck at home with a cold than when you are well enough to play Mum-taxi every day.


  1. Bibs are always a perfect and well loved pressie! The picture books are a great baby pressie. I've never thought of making something like that.

  2. Oh my... lots and lots of baby loviness here! That frog looks wonderful... but I'm interested to know more about your soft book.


Thankyou for your kind thoughts. I appreciate and read everyone even though at times I may not be well enough to reply. Thankyou.
