It’s hot weather seaon here and time for some yummy ice lollies but we seem to have misplaced the ice lollie covers that are suppose to be in the freezer, you know the one’s that are made out of wetsuit material kinda stuff. You can usually pick up a 2 pack at the supermarket.
Well I couldn’t find any so what else is there to do but make your own and it’s a great way to use up your scrap material that you have lying around. I happened to have some odd pieces of PUL (Polyurethane laminate or waterproof material) but you can just use 2 layers of cotton fabric or even felt as they are just to stop the kiddies fingers getting cold.
So first off cut out 2 pieces of fabric that measure 3.75 inches by 4.5 inches and with right sides of the fabric facing each other sew around 3 sides.
Now turn the fabric out the right way, fold in half so that the fabric you want to be on the outside is facing each other and pin like so:
I used a zigzag stitch to close sew the 2 sides together but you can also straight stitch or use an overlocker. Turn right side out and there you have it. Only takes under 5 mins to make.
I have my niece over at the moment for school holiday sleepover so I ended up making 4.
Have you got any great ideas for using up your fabric scraps? Would love for you to share over at my Facebook page!
Just before Christmas I had a lovely lady ask if my pram liners were suitable for the Baby Jogger City Mini. These prams fold from the seat via a clasp that you pull up so there needs to be to holes for the strap to feed through so that you are not reaching under the liner to do this.
After the customer provided a picture with measurements I was able to draft and make a custom liner for her. I love the fabric that she has chosen its so cute and a little bit vintage.
So if you are looking for a liner for your Baby Jogger City Mini they are now available at Bits & Bobs 4 Bubs.
Just a quick note to say thank you so much for supporting Bits & Bobs 4 Bubs throughout 2013. I have had so many lovely customers with custom orders and had a few challenges along the way which have kept me very busy.
I have so many things that I want to make for you all next year and can’t wait to share them with you. Merry Christmas too you and your families and I look forward to a fantastic 2014.

A dear friend of mines little Miss Grace had her 1st birthday on Friday and today we helped celebrate this little ladies birthday along with her Big Brother who turned 2 yesterday as well. And I just had to have a go at making her a little outfit along with a matching felt doll that seems to be all the craze at the moment.
I also added a little bag as she loves walking around with one on her little shoulder just like her mummy. The pinafore and nappy cover are both reversible and you can find the tutorials along with the patterns here, here and here (the nappy cover tutorial is not reversible I changed it so that it was).
The little bag is just something I whipped up and will do a tutorial for you very soon. The crochet flower on the bag and hair clip was made by me as well.
Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.
