Baby, baby,baby.......

Hi there so work is well under way with my baby pressies 
for my Lil brother...younger that is.... he's def about a foot
taller than me, which by the way would not prove difficult for
the vast majority of people over twelve years of age
as I measure in at a mere 4ft 11.5 inches (.5 being of the utmost
importance) you do understand!!!!

I've finished the baby bag, an absolute necessity for any
mother of a newborn.
I did so enjoy piecing this one together

The wee flower is removable in case its a boy & they think
its a wee bit girley,,,,really hope they like it

Also planned for tomorrow are these

Bit odd looking now to be sure, but they WILL be a few pairs 
of baby booties.....check back & see????
When I had them laid out like this my mind was brought back to 
this storybook & this illustration

Anyone else recognise this delightful book
Was one of my firm favourites as a child, such lovely pictures.
Wonder will my booties turn out as nicely as theirs!!!!

Before I go I just have to share this with you

Ella's school had a bunny art competition.
Every child received a bunny to decorate whatever way they wanted
This is her entry....sadly she didn't win a prise
but working together with her on it was the best ever.
Better luck next time.

I'll be back soon with more baby bits have to buy wadding for the quilt tomorrow
so I hope to have that finished over the weekend along with the 
booties, ready to post on Monday or Tuesday.
Three weeks left & its got to go to Australia eeeek
Hope it gets there first

Lots of love
Have a sweet weekend

  1. That bag is absolutely precious! You're such a good seamstress! I love that.

  2. You've been busy, I'm sure they'll love the bag. I had that book too and still remember the lovely images. I wish I'd kept my ladybird books, but I expect they were given to a jumble sale years ago :(

  3. Hey, your baby change bag is amazing! Looks so professional! My favourite children's story is the elves and the shoe maker, I love the fact that someone else does your work while you are sleeping - wish that would happen now :0) Sam x

  4. The baby bag is beautiful. I had that little book and it was my favorite.
