I am really trying to post more often, I have so many exciting things going on. And a lovely babysitter which would normally allow me to sew, just sew, every Monday from 9 to 12.
So, I am very excited and started several projects at the same time: The BIB project (sounds like a new and upcoming indie pop band but really it is about creating the perfect bib before the young man outgrows his reflux), a little red riding hood costume with added welt pockets to practice welt pockets before making my own coat, the perfect breastfeeding top that is not a pregnancy-breastfeeding combo as I am NOT pregnant anymore and certainly do not want to look like it, a couple of baby presents for all these babies recently born, a knitted dress for my niece’s first birthday and a knitted cardigan for a 2 year old (an actual order!)
I should be able to finish all of them tomorrow between 9 and 12, no?
And I will write 500 posts about them in the next couple of days. To be ready for new projects next Monday.
But back to Scrap Sunday.
I was lucky enough to get my preordered copy of Kinderleicht! Naehen mit Jersey fuer Babys and Kids by Pauline Dohmen (klimperklein) a couple of weeks ago (oh, I almost forgot, you can add a babycoat to my list) and finally managed to make a little triangular scarf out of left over fabrics. It is very pretty. I didn’t intend to let Mr. Reflux wear it as it would be a waste, plus it is a bit unsuitable for our needs. But it is pretty and I kind of want to keep it for
So we will see. But I really made it to be teamed up with a little hat and to go to one of those new babies as a welcome present.
As you can see, it is double sided and therefore reversible. And will make a perfect little baby present together with one of klimperkleins cute little hats, like these if you remember:
I seem to not have shown you our current one yet, we are getting lots of compliments for this one. Also a proper Scrap Hat, actually:
