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.

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.
