1st Birthday Sewing

As soon as I saw these little dolls, I knew I had to make them for one of my little nieces.

The pattern is from Ginger Melon and this is where you can find the pattern.

I didn't add the crown on mine.

I changed the colours a few times, as the combos I wasn't happy with.

I am not the best at embroidery, I just give it a go.

I really love how they turned out and I am sure she will love them to.

I also made her a bib, I had seen these last year on this blog. If you head to tutorials and look for bapron you will find the pattern and instructions. 

It was very easy and I will definitely be making some for my baba.

Baby Change Mat Cover

As mentioned a few days ago, I said I would post photos of the change mat cover I made.

I find this fabric at a craft store that was closing down, so it was half price. It is a Michael Miller fabric but I don't know which designer. I had to have it, even though it leans more towards a boy I just love the insects in a jar.

The change mat we brought and it was just a white plastic foamed no allergenic, no mould type mat. I forgot to take photo.
So what I did was measured all the pieces and angles and added a 1 cm  seam allowance.

I lined the front mat pieces with terry towelling as I thought it felt cold without it.

I found the corners hard to figure out. But it turned out well.

The back I just made an envelope style opening so I can take it off to wash.
