A Gift

Miss J’s prep teacher finished for maternity leave on Friday with her 3rd baby, a girl that is due in June.  So I wanted to make her a clutch nappy wallet with a couple of changes made to it and I wanted it to be really girl.

Well for something that should have only taken an hour I struggled with big time.  My poor sewing machine is up for a much needed service I think.  Not only did the bobbin play up and I had to re thread it twice, I also blew 2 light bulbs as well.


The front was suppose to be have white with pink rose and half beige organic cotton fabric with a strip of crochet lace down the middle.  Because of the bobbin I had to unpick it a few times and when it was sewn all together it did not match up when folded.


So back to the old drawing board and I decided to just change the fabric.  The one thing that did work for me was the zipper I inserted for the wipes container pocket.  I think this is a great change and I will be doing this from now on with the rest of my wallets.


In the end I think it turned out lovely and very girlie.

I am a stay at home mother of 2 beautiful girls and 1 handsome little man. I first started my blog www.eatcraftsow.blogspot.com as a place that I could share my love of sewing, anything crafty, cooking and working in my vegetable garden. I have always enjoyed making handmade gifts for family and friends and just before Christmas 2010 I started drafting designs for items that I wanted to make for myself for when my little man came into the world. With a little bit of convincing from my family and friends I decided to make and sell these items.
