Baby shower gift

I had a lovely time this afternoon at a baby shower for one of my closest friends daughter and her fiance.  They are expecting a baby boy in June and I just had to use this gorgeous Elephant fabric that I picked up acouple of weeks ago.

I just love the green and cream colours, it has that earthy feel to it.  I have some more of this fabric and will be making another nappy wallet and change mat set which will be a new item available in both stores.

I also had to make a cute bib and burp cloth set which is something I use to have available when I first started my little Bits & Bobs 4 Bubs page and thought that I would re introduce the sets again.

The gift as you can see was a bib & burp cloth set, nappy wallet with matching change mat.  It was a lovely afternoon was some great games and great company.

What did you get up too this weekend?

WordPress

 

Hello my lovely followers, just wanted to let you know that I am currently looking at changing my blog from blogger to wordpress.  I am looking for something new and fresh and with Bits & Bobs 4 Bubs getting really busy I am wanting to share more of behind the scenes and my works in progress.

As I have also mentioned I am looking to start up my newsletter again but fortnightly which will include special deals for subscribers and much more. 

So please bare with me during this upgrade period and I look forward to seeing you on the new updated blog.

Potty Training

 

We are still potting training at our house.  It’s funny my girls were well and truly potty trained before they were 2 but my little man seems to be taking a little longer it’s not so much the number 1’s but the number 2’s lol. 

So on Friday night I decided to make him a potty training liner for his car seat.  I drafted the pattern at first so that it could be used as a liner for any seating eg, pram/stroller, high chair but as we no longer use either of this in our house I just made an anchor point that the car seat buckle can go through.

There are only 3 layers to the liner, top is cotton fabric, in the middle is a layer of absorbent padding and the bottom is PUL fabric (waterproof).

Over the next week I will be making more liners and uploading them to my stores for $15 plus postage.  Custom orders are also welcome.

New bunny softie sets

Have you seen my new felt/fabric bunny with matching beanie and bootie set that is now available in my Made It store.  I just love how this little guy has turned out.  Have been thinking about this one for a while and after using the Ric Rac Rabbit fabric for my raffle donation I just had to finally make it.

I will have limited custom spots available, just pop us an email with colours, sizing etc and I can see what I can do for you.
I also have the Ric Rac Rabbit in a quilting panel so keep an eye out for that set too.

The lovely Kylie Addy from Kaddy Photography is holding a High Tea on 30th March to help raise money for our many farmers effected by the drought.  My mother and I are going and can’t wait to enjoy a lovely morning tea as well as meeting other lovely people supporting the cause.

I have also donated a gift basket full of lovely goodies for a raffle that will also be happening to raise more money.  In the basket is a pram liner, baby trolley capsule liner, nappy wallet with hand sanitiser holder and bib and matching burp cloth.

All these lovely goodies are in a coordinating fabric basket that can be used in a little one’s room and will fit the large wipes container and nappies.

Hope to have these available to purchase in my shops.  So stay tuned!!

Nappy bag combo

 

If you are following me on Facebook and Instagram you will have seen that I have been working on a nappy bag combo soon to be released. 

I have made a prototype that I plan on using for myself (new crochet bag) so the fabric is a bit daggy.

The bag will be 16 inches wide x 14 inches high with a depth of 5 inches.  Inside the bag has 4 large pockets plus one small pocket that has insulation for a baby bottle or water bottle.  On the outside of the bag there will be a zipper pocket big enough for you to place a mobile phone, keys etc.

At the moment I have some lovely large magnetic closures that I am planning on using so that you have easy access to the inside of the bag.

The strap for the bag will be 50 inches long but adjustable with padding for where the bag hangs on your shoulder.  All bags will come with a matching nappy wallet and a change mat.

Would love to know your thoughts.

Cheers
