Have been busy making a few things to add to their nursery. It is such a great pleasure to do this in celebration for the safe arrival of the newest edition to the family.
Of course within the theme of the mother to be strict guidelines.
One nappy stacker as ordered with matching receiving blanket plus a few extras bibs, storage bin, burp cloths, hooded towel and bath washer toy.
Toy giraffe, elephant will be added extras.

Adding my own personal details and touches.
Such as handles, pocket trim, internal pocket sizes, as original pockets too small.
Cutting each main fabric piece, lining and stiffening as well as interfacing for every piece, pressing, trimming plus setting out and remeasuring. Top stitching and of course adding zips.

To use on school camps a set that is one of a kind. To keep all of her nic nacs.
Gave them to her last week and she absolutely loves them, already deciding what to put in them. One has nail polish another has make up.
She is one of a kind always appreciates hand made items.

Saw this on Shabby Fabrics You Tube last year and didn't have time to make one so with Christmas fast approaching again decide to give it a go. Was easy to make little messy with the glue but if careful you should have no worries.
You will need to make sure your rotor cutter is sharp. Quick project. Am planing on making another three for next year in different colour way.
