My foot is letting me sit at the machine for a bit, which has cheered me up no end.
I've also made some more bibs, using some of my stash of discontinued upholstery samples in linen/cotton blends and backed with an old bath towel I've cut up which makes them ultra absorbent for one spewy dribbly little girl.
Ant likes his black shirts, and this one was getting really ratty on the collar and cuffs. So the other day I mentioned to him how I'd like to cover said collar and cuffs with some contrasting fabric. He straight away grabbed my little stash of more groovy fabrics (with me hovering beside him telling him which fabrics were just too precious to cut up yet!) and pounced on this loud orange Prints Charming fabric. I knew it would be best not to tackle this sort of thing on the machine, and I really enjoyed spending the afternoon and evening sewing these on by hand, while Tamsyn played or slept. Too easy.
Pod Swaddler, which I've made for Tamsyn's cousin who's due to enter the world in June. Tara chose the fabric (Amy Butler) and I lined it with flannel. I wish I'd known about these before Tamsyn was born, I probably would've made a couple for her. At least I know what to make for future babies, and would be the perfect baby shower gift too.
