Mommy putting her new baby in handmade stuff while still at the hospital!
Vine Lace Baby Hat by Sandi Wisehart in some leftover mulberry silk
Saartje's booties by Saartje de Bruijn in some leftover cashmere blend
Baby at home, in the fantastic Kicking Bag for Babies by annika with various leftover sock and lace weight yarns - very funky and by far the most used and useful handmade item during the first few cold weeks! (also note the handsome, haggard husband and the disheveled craft wardrobe, and the hideous wallpaper in our rented house).
Some triumphant sewing, something I haven't done in a while. this gives me hope for finding time to sew amidst little kiddos everywhere. This is the Buttercup Bag from Made by Rae. I love this pattern, very well written and a lovely purse. I made this for my sister's birthday, with some decorator fabric I found at a tag sale.
Here, a happy 2 month old in handmade gifts from friends... the onesie from a local friend, and the cardigan from Jeanne... and that smile is one of the best products of the past two months!!!
