DIY BABY - part 6

.
I made a babies sleeping bag on monday, out of an old cotton table cloth and some Liberty print fabric. Its slightly padded and has a fold over bit at the bottom so you can open it up {which is a bit wonky I know}. The pocket is made from a scrap of Japanese print cloth.

I hope that it fits the babe, or the babe fits it! I didn't use a pattern foolishly so I'll have to wait and see.



So I'm pretty much there for preparations for the kiddo...still have a month and a half to go, so I guess I'll be twiddling by thumbs for a bit now.
My belly is huge and daily life is very odd with a big bump...not much else to report concerning preggo stuff. I have met up with a few local ladies who are all due around the same time as me, which was lovely. Also been reading lots of books and enjoying foot rubs every day {husbondo has bought me an electric foot massager so he's officially been made redundant of that job}. I have had a serious craving for nectarines, I can get through three in 60 seconds easy.

  6. Love the materials. Original and stylish. Obviously your in the nesting phase. Although you do a lot of great nesting always. This made me want to crack out the sewing machine. To do what? Hmm... That quilt thats been in the back of my mind since my first bump, now a 7 year old lump. Best wishes.

  7. You know it's very lovely to follow your preparations for the baby at the moment. I started to read your blog during spring 2010 when I was preparing my wedding for 7th of August. Found your blog through some mysterious nets. And right now I'm expecting my first baby which is due this autumn... no more than five weeks to go. Sharing same thoughts, far away in Finland :)

    Beautiful sleeping bag!

  8. Those little sleeping bags are just so beautiful, I love your fabric choices. I've been there four times and I tell ya the big belly thing toward the end is something I still cannot believe our bodies can do and do over and over in my case and over.
    Good luck xx

  9. Oh that sleeping bag is beautiful. I love all your little baby projects. You have such fantastic tastes in fabrics etc. I'm just shy of 15 weeks pregnant(such I long way to go still!), but I'm really struggling to hold back on finding amazing baby things. I'm a little too impatient for sewing but think I might give it a go anyway :).

    I'm making sleep sacks for my grandson. Love the flap at the bottom. No buttons, zippers, or drawstrings. Brilliant!!
