Let's here it for the boys!

Further things to show. A matching blanket, appliqued bib and taggy man. These are in a beautiful soft flannelette. The blanket is large enough for swaddling or for use as a pram blanket. The bib is appliqued with "Oh Boy" and a star and has a velcro closure. The taggy man is small enough for little hands and has ribbon hair for texture. Everything is sheep on the one side and stripes on the reverse.

This is the first of many such sets I have planned. As a teaser here are some of the other fabrics destined for blanketness.

Here are also some fabrics that will most likely become nappy rolls and totes, but then again you never know. They might just end up as cute little hand bags for Mummies.

Do you like pink?

My first preview (I feel like such a big girl)! This is a matching nappy roll and tote bag, designed for Mum not for baby. For some time I have been intrigued as to why the neccessities of babyness (the bags, the accessories and all the other guff we are forced to carry) are so child orientated. Does the baby have to carry them about?

Hence, this is designed for Mum. She has to carry it and she should like it. I also don't think it needs to be the size of a small semi trailer. With these two items you have everything for a quick nappy change and a bag to carry extra kiddy clothes and your own bits and pieces. The bag has a patterned pocket inside for the phone, keys, etc.

The nappy roll has pockets to hold a few nappies (2 dispossable or 1 cloth), a travel pack of wipes and a third pocket for nappy bags. All this rolls up into the cute little packet at the top.

Of course now that I have made this one I am a bit diasappointed about the one I made for myself yesterday. It is just put together out of bits from the fabric stash and is not near as cute. Oh well, I am sure I will cope and I rationalised it by hoping that my two year old might not be in nappies for that much longer (yeah right).

Well there you are. A start.

Well here we go....

A friend of mine has planted the rather insane notion that I should sell some of the bits and pieces I make. It has gotten to the point where I create far more than I can possibly give away and thus it has come to this.

Stay tuned for details of the store opening and upcoming projects.
